Zenit St Petersburg beat Lokomotiv Moscow in the Russian Super Cup

Dejan Lovren already has his first piece of silverware for his new club Zenit St Petersburg - less than two weeks after signing for the Russian club from Liverpool.

The defender played the full 90 minutes as Zenit beat Lokomotiv Moscow 2-1 on his debut in the Russian Super Cup, a trophy contested at the start of each season.

The Croatia centre-back, 31, joined the Russian club for £10.9m after playing in 10 Premier League games in 2019-20 for champions Liverpool.

Zenit are champions of Russia and start the 2020-21 Premier League season on 11 August against Rotor Volgograd.

Lovren was an unused substitute when Liverpool beat Tottenham in the 2018-19 Champions League final.
