Zenit St. Petersburg vs Ural Prediction
The Zeniters were held to a goalless draw the last match-day at home by Ufa. While the former did keep alive their unbeaten streak, they still dropped two points, and the team will be eager to get back to their winning ways.
Meanwhile, the Bumblebees lost 2-0 on the road against the dead-last placed Sochi. The fact that the team lost against the worst of the lot, that too without scoring a single goal – will have an affect on the confidence level of the players, especially with them being pitted against the league toppers.
Going on, the Zeniters have been the best team by a mile in the competition. They have scored the second-most number of goals in the contest, and have conceded the least. In fact, they are yet to touch the 10-goal mark in terms of goals conceded, while every other team have let in 20 or more.
Moreover, the Zeniters hold a 100% unbeaten record against this opponent in the prior two decades (would have been a 100% winning record if not for a single draw), and at this venue, they hold a proper 100% winning streak.
Furthermore, the Zeniters have scored two or more goals in 12 of the last 14 h2h meetings, and at this venue, they hold a combined scorecard of 16-3, from the last six h2h match-ups. Considering all these stats, it’s evident that Zenit St. Petersburg are the overwhelming favorites this weekend.
