Zenit vs Ural
Russia – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 19 August 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Saint-Petersburg Stadium, St. Petersburg.
Zenit are clearly determined to attack the domestic silverware this season. They have a perfect record after three rounds of the new campaign and they practically got eliminated from the UEFA Europa League falling 4-0 away at Dinamo Minsk in the first leg of their third-qualifying round tie.
Sergei Semak’s men can thus entirely shift their attention to domestic affairs where the Lions are about to face Ural in the fourth round on Sunday afternoon at Saint-Petersburg Stadium.
The hosts will be massive favourites to wrap up the spoils here as they will be up against the opposition which only took a single point from past three outings.
Uraltsy thus announced the relegation battle in this term of the Premier League as they clearly lack the attacking quality to stay competitive to the rest of the competition.
Zenit vs Ural: Head-to-head
- Zenit were brutal in the history of head to head affairs with Uraltsy.
- The Lions won 9 and drew 1 of 10 meetings with Ural.
- Zenit won each of five home clashes against Uraltsy with a superb goal difference of 12-2.
Zenit vs Ural: Prediction
Dmytro Parfenov’s men look to be struggling badly for goals at the start of the new season.
They will face huge troubles breaking Zenit down here, especially if we know the host are yet to concede in the new Premier League season.
The main bet will thus be Zenit to keep a clean sheet at the odds of 1.61.
Semak also has a wide spectrum of attacking options in his ranks and we expect the hosts to dominate the pitch from the very get go here.
You can have Zenit to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end at 1.95 odds, while the Lions are 2.15 to win by at least two goals difference.
