Lvi have beaten Rubin Kazan, Dinamo Minsk, Ural, Molde, and Ufa with quite convincing displays in the attacking third along the way and they will now hope they can build on such records at Saint-Petersburg Stadium. Sergei Semak’s men haven’t suffered a loss here since early April and we should now see them in top shape once again.

Spartak, on the other hand, dropped out of the Champions League Qualifiers in the 3rd Qualifying Round but we have seen them bounce back domestically, as they earned narrow wins over Krasnodar and Dinamo Moscow. They’ve been very tough defensively so could as well be more of a challenge in St. Petersburg too, which promises a great matchup on Sunday afternoon!

Zenit St. Petersburg vs Spartak Moscow: Head-to-head

  • Zenit have bagged three consecutive wins in front of the home crowd despite more troubles on their trips to Moscow.
  • Both sides have found the net in all of their last seven head-to-head matchups since May 2015.
  • Spartak have bagged a thriller 3-1 win in their last matchup back in November 2017.

Zenit St. Petersburg vs Spartak Moscow: Prediction

We will now back Zenit to take confidence from success across competitions recently as well as their convincing records at home ground, going for a very good-looking Home win at 1.95. They have been in great shape recently and we do feel this will show at Saint-Petersburg Stadium on Sunday too.

We should be in for another thriller contest, though, and we do believe we’re in for goals as we also stick our necks out for Over 2.5 goals FT, which seems generous at 2.04 and has attracted many in the know already as the sides enjoy an attacking approach to their games – despite high stakes involved.
