Semak did a fabulous job with Ufa last season and he continued to shine with the Lions at the start of the 2018/19 campaign. Zenit won five and drew one of opening six games and they head into Sunday’s clash with Orenbug as table toppers.

The hosts can also be satisfied with the kick off to their Premier League campaign. They shockingly won three on the bounce at the start. However, a streak of one loss and draw apiece followed it. Vladimir Fedotov’s troops still sit at the sky-high fifth place coming into this Zenit clash.

Orenburg vs Zenit St. Petersburg Head-to-head

This will only be the third head to head encounter between the two teams.

Zenit won both home and away fixtures in the previous term without conceding a single goal in the process (1-0 each).

Orenburg vs Zenit St. Petersburg Prediction

Orenburg shipped two second-half goals without response to lose their first match of the season in the previous round away at Dynamo Moscow. Their defensive line will be under a massive pressure here given it’s about to face the likes of Artem Dzyuba and Sebastian Driussi. This duo combined five goals in six games so far.

Zenit conceded only one goal in six affairs so far in the season. Knowing they haven’t allowed a single in two H2H games with Orenburg last term, we have to back the Lions to keep a clean sheet at the 1.90 odds as an ideal alternative solution here. The away win can be considered a banker at 1.57.

Orenburg vs Zenit St. Petersburg Bet Tips

  • Zenit to win @ 1.57 (4/7)
