Zenit are obviously massive favourites to grab the spoils, especially after a strong pre-season campaign which saw their strikers thrive in the final third against some strong opponents. As you know, Roberto Mancini left the team in between two seasons as Sergei Semak took charge. This will be Semak’s official debut on Zenit’s bench and he’ll certainly want to get off to a victorious start against the league newcomers here.

Yenisey vs Zenit: Head-to-head

Yenisey and Zenit will take on each other for the first time ever on Sunday.

Yenisey vs Zenit: Prediction

The Lions had a dreadful campaign under Roberto Mancini last season. They finished the Premier League season at a disappointing fifth place. Can they challenge the title this time around? The squad practically remained unchanged. The man who starred at the recently finished World Cup, Artem Dzyuba, returned from loan at Arsenal Tula and he is expected to play a big role in the final third this season.

Dzyuba featured the 3-3 draw to Inter Milan last Saturday, but he was not among the goalscorers there. Goals rather came from Noboa, Hernani and Mak. It was the first draw after four consecutive wins in the off-season for the Lions who bagged an impressive 13-goal tally in last four friendlies.

Yenisey also enjoyed a strong form in the pre-season, winning two in a row before holding the likes of CSKA Moscow to a 1-1 draw in the final test last weekend. Nevertheless, they will face huge troubles holding Zenit down here and we have to back the visitors to pick up the victory at the start of the new season.
