Zenit Saint-Petersburg

In the last round, the team defeated "Akhmat" with a score of 4:0 and won their first victory in official matches in 2021. On the road in this RPL competition, "Zenit" play unsuccessfully: away the team gained only 31% of their points and scored only 22% of their goals. At the same time, the St. Petersburgers concede more often at home; on the road in the current championship the team conceded only 37% of their goals. 

"Zenit" have not won 7 of their last 8 away matches in the RPL (5 draws, 2 losses). Nevertheless, the Petersburgers are playing very successfully with CSKA: since March 2014, "Zenit" have just lost once to CSKA in the Premier League (6 wins, 6 draws).
