Zenit Saint Petersburg vs Lokomotiv Moscow Prediction 17 July 2021

Tournament: Russian Super Cup
Location: Kaliningrad Stadium
Match date: 07/17/2021 at 16:00

As part of the Russian Super Cup, the champions of the country Zenit and the Cup winners  Lokomotiv will traditionally meet.

Zenit finished the 2020/21 season in first position, and did it for the third time in a row. Now the Petersburgers intend to extend their hegemony for at least another year, as well as to perform with dignity in European competitions. Earlier this month, Semak's men had three friendly sparring matches with Schalke (0:0), Werder Bremen (2:2) and Karlsruher (3:1).

Lokomotiv finished third, letting Spartak through, and will now play in the Europa League group stage. It is noteworthy that in the off-season, the Railwaymen took part in eight control games at once. There they defeated Zilina 3:2, Olympia 6:1, Hartberg 1:0 and Celje 1:0, shared points with Rapid (0:0) and Cracovia (2:2), and also lost 1:2 to Aris and 1:2 to Rostov.

Both teams have not yet reached their optimal condition, because they expect to do so closer to the start of the European competition in September. As for us, they will play the Super Cup very carefully, without an impressive number of accurate shots.
