Zenit St. Petersburg vs Spartak Moscow Prediction
Zenit St Petersburg made it three wins out of three in all competitions last week, after they slotted two unanswered goals past Lyon at home. The hosts are also unbeaten in their previous six matches in the Premier League and have amassed sixteen points from a possible eighteen in the process as well.
With a solid five-point cushion over Lokomotiv Moscow, the home side have reiterated their intentions to stay at the top.
On the other hand, Spartak Moscow have not been at the losing end in any of their past two matchups either. Their last clash on the road saw them hold Ural to a stalemate, prior to which they took down Samara on home soil by a 2-0 scoreboard.
Despite the positive streak that they are on at the moment, it needs saying that they are about to bite off more than what they can chew in this one. The home team are yet to stumble at Gazprom Arena in their domestic campaign.
To make matters worse for the traveling faithful, Spartak Moscow have dropped points in five of their last eight outings. Taking into account that they have not secured the bragging rights in any of their previous six visits here either, the tag of favorites most certainly goes to Zenit.
Furthermore, Zenit have had their scoring boots on in their clashes at home. The squad have racked up eighteen goals to their tally, which is the most by any side as of now.
Considering that seven of their previous ten h2h fixtures have also featured over 2.5 goals on the charts, expect a high scoring clash by all means when they lock horns this weekend.
