Spartak Moscow lead the Russian Premier League after their 2-0 victory over Ural on Sunday.
After two games of the new league campaign, Valeri Karpin's men are the only side to have won both of their games after they followed up their 2-1 success against Krylya Sovetov in week one with a comfortable win at the Stadion Central'nyj.
Ural managed to hold their own during the first half , but former Celtic winger Aiden McGeady put the away side ahead in the 51st minute before Nigerian Emmanuel Emenike wrapped up the points in injury time.
Zenit St Petersburg failed to build on their opening day win as they fell to a 2-1 defeat at Rubin Kazan.
Luciano Spaletti's side got off to the perfect start when Portugal international Danny gave them the lead after just six minutes.
However, Zenit were pegged back shortly after start of the second half when Gokdeniz Karadeniz levelled the scores for the hosts, before Jose Salomon Rondon struck in the fifth minute of injury time to snatch all three points for Rubin.
Elsewhere on Sunday, Rostov and Krasnodar played out a 2-2 draw at the Stadion Olimp 2.
Anzhi Makhachkala's shaky start to the season continued on Friday, as they slumped to a 2-1 defeat to Dinamo Moscow at the Arena Khimki, courtesy of a 96th-minute penalty from former Liverpool striker Andriy Voronin.
The match would prove to be Guus Hiddink's final game in charge of Anzhi as the Dutchamn announced his resignation from the club on Monday, with ex-Manchester United coach Rene Meulensteen taking charge at the Anzhi-Arena.
Pavel Solomatin notched his first goal of the season in the first half to put Dinamo into a 1-0 half-time lead.
Former QPR defender Christopher Samba thought he had rescued a point for Anzhi when he made it 1-1 with just seven minutes remaining, but Voronin held his nerve from 12 yards deep into stoppage time to give the home side the win.
On Monday, two goals from substitute Seydou Doumbia saw reigning champions CSKA Moscow come from behind with ten men to defeat Krylya Sovetov 2-1 at the Arena Khimki.
Left-back Georgi Schennikov received his marching orders after just eight minutes, and the home sides ill-discipline cost them once more when Ilya Maksimov converted a first-half penalty.
But Doumbia restored parity in the second period, before adding another from the penalty-spot with just 11 minutes remaining to give CSKA their first league win of the season.
Three games took place on Saturday, as Tom' Tomsk fell to a second successive defeat after falling 2-1 to Kuban Krasnodar, who move to second. Lokomotiv Moscow continued their unbeaten start to the campaign with a 2-1 win away to Volga, and Terek Grozny were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Amkar Perm.
