Upcoming Predictions for Football
Last season "Zenit" once again won the Russian championship. "St. Petersburg" deservedly won, ahead of the nearest opponent by eight points, while showing the best attack performance, which scored 2.5 goals per tournament on average.
Claudinho from "RB Bragantino" (12 million) in summer, Dmitry Chistyakov from "Rostov" (3.25 million) and the goalkeeper of "Zhil Vicente" Stanislav Kritsyuk (2 million) came to reinforce the roster.
Sergei Semak's players celebrated the new football year with a victory over "Lokomotiv" in the Russian Super Cup (3:0). The start of the Premier League tournament brought five victories and two peaceful outcomes, which corresponds to 17 points and the first position in the table. The "Blue-white-blue" won the last two duels - against "CSKA" (1:0) and "Akhmat" (3:1).
- The hosts have won their last two home games dry.
- This rate took place in 2 of "Chelsea's" last 3 matches.
- Teams have scored in 2 of "Zenit's" last 3 games in both halves.
- This rate has taken place in the last two matches of "Chelsea".
"Zenit" has an open streak of 20 unbeaten matches. The Russian Champion is in good shape, but the current Champions League winner is very good in recent fights. Moreover, the chances of any opponent tend to zero at Stamford Bridge.
In our opinion, today "Chelsea" are more powerful in the selection of performers and, due to the class and support of the stands, they will be able to score the first three points.
Our prediction is an Asian handicap (-2) for "Chelsea" with the odds of 2.09 on 1xbet.
