Date: Friday, 26 June 2020
Kick-off at 18:30 UK/19:30 CET

Zenit St. Petersburg is on an unbeaten streak in the league lately and the clash with the bottom dweller, Samara, will not be a challenge for the reigning champions.
Zenit vs Krylya Sovetov Match preview
Zenit has been unbeaten in their last 12 matches in the league, following a 0-4 win on the road against CSKA Moscow last time out. Only one of their recent six fixtures has seen them concede a goal.
The reigning champions are unbeaten at home in their 12 appearances so far. With 7 wins and 5 draws in that period, they put up a neat case for the use of the ground advantage at Gazprom Arena.
Krylya Samara is at the ultimate bottom of the league table this season, but it will comfort them as the bottom six teams are not so far from each other in points.
They will visit after a 2-4 defeat against FK Akhmat in their previous encounter at home. The guest has 6 losses in 11 away fixtures and 3 of them came within their recent four outings.
In the reverse fixture this season, Zenit scored two goals against none in their visits and took the bragging rights in the clash.
With all factors favoring the host, the only thing to look forward to is by what margin Samara accepts defeat.

Zenit vs Krylya Sovetov Prediction
Zenit is on a nearly invincible run in the league and their sturdy form will give them an edge over the host along with the 31 point lead over the latter in the league table.
With their unbeaten streak at home, the Lions enjoy their home ground advantage and the poor away form of the visitors will reduce their chance to win in the encounter.
The home win is numbered at low odds and the best bet for the punters will be the tip for Zenit to win with a -1 handicap at 1.57 odds. Since a high-scoring affair is probable in the clash, the tip of over 2.5 goals with 1.60 odds will also be a suitable option for the punters.
