The hosts will be looking to improve on their lead in the table and with a major part of the season yet to come to these points may prove crucial in the title race.

Zenit Petersburg vs Akhmat Grozny: Prediction
With a great unbeaten run at home going on I don’t see the team from Saint Petersburg losing to a team like the Wolves. The 4 game win streak at home puts clear daylight between the two teams. Also considering that the away side has lost 4 of their 6 games on the road this season we can bet on Zenit winning with 1.53 odd.
The Wolves are struggling to score goals meanwhile leaking goals have been a habit for them. Against a team like Zenit, who only conceded 4 goals at home it will be difficult for the visiting forwards to score. Even though they do Zenit will strike back as they did against a team like Krasnodar who is second in the competition. Since last 3 of their 4 games for both the teams had over 2.5 goals in total we can bet for the same to happen on Sunday with 2.10 odd.
