FC Rostov vs Zenit Saint Petersburg Prediction 1 August 2021

Tournament: Russian Premier League
Location: Rostov Arena
Match date: 08/01/2021 at 17:00

On Sunday, as part of the second round of the RPL, the reigning champions of the country Zenit will go to visit he unyielding Rostov.

Rostov finished the previous campaign in ninth position, gaining 43 points with a modest goal difference of 37:35. As you can see, a good game in defense did not allow the Yellows to fight for the European Cup zone. And now, after the 0:2 fiasco against Dynamo Moscow, Karpin's charges do not feel very convincing.

A week ago, Zenit got a tough 3:1 victory over Khimki, thus moving up to the second line of the standings. And earlier Semak's men declassed Lokomotiv 3:0 in a duel for the Super Cup. But the goals of the St. Petersburg team are much higher - to win the fourth championship title in a row, as well as to compete with dignity in European competitions.

Rostov has repeatedly imposed serious competition on Zenit at their arena. But over the past six months, the class difference between the teams has grown significantly. This time we predict easy three points for the St. Petersburg giants.
