FC Rostov vs Zenit St. Petersburg Prediction

Zenit St. Petersburg is the topper of the Russian Premier League right now. They gave no other team even a chance to compete for the top spot before they left them crawling behind for second.

Their players are exceptionally well-coordinated and have amazing chemistry. They excel at scoring as well as creating. Their defenders are rock-solid. Opponent forwards would be tired out by the constant checks that are given by the backline of the league-toppers.

FC Rostov is a great team, but against Zenit, they are the underdogs. Their head-to-head record is sufficient evidence for the dominance of the visitors over Rostov.

Last five matches between these teams saw only one team getting into the score sheet. Rostov is notorious for drawing blanks against Zenit. Therefore, expect goals on a premium in this extremely tight clash.
