FC Khimki vs Zenit Saint Petersburg Prediction 24 July 2021

Tournament: Russian Premier League
Location: Arena Khimki
Match date: 07/24/2021 at 14:30

In matchday one of the RPL, strong middle-tier team Khimki will face undisputed champions Zenit.

Eighth position, 45 points and goals 35:39 - Khimki had a worthy first year in the elite after returning from the FNL. And now the Moscow Region club is clearly not going to fight for survival. Although they lost all five friendly sparring in the offseason - 0:1 to Olimp-Dolgoprudny, 0:1 to Fakel, 0:1 to Rubin, 2:3 to Sochi and 1:5 to Spartak.

Zenit also looked decent against German Schalke (0:0), Werder Bremen (2:2) and Karlsruher (3:1), after which they defeated Lokomotiv 3:0 in the battle for the country's Super Cup. At the moment, Semak's men are absolutely the strongest team in Russia, so they are expected to win in the overwhelming majority of matches.

Khimki are doing well in defense, but they have bad statistics with Zenit - only one draw with nine defeats. Our prediction: the guests will triumph again, but not with a large score.
