CSKA vs. Zenit: Betting and predictions for March 17
The central meeting of the 23rd round of the Tinkoff RPL between CSKA and "Zenit" will take place on March 17th. A limited number of fans can attend the match.
In the last round of the Tinkoff RPL, the team lost to "Arsenal" 1:2 and dropped to 3rd place in the standings. At home, CSKA have not lost in 7 previous league matches (4 wins, 3 draws). Still, CSKA have conceded at least 1 goal in 82% of home games this season in the Premier League. CSKA did not win against St. Petersburg club in 4 previous head-to-head matches in the RPL (1 draw, 3 losses), and at home, the team managed to win only one victory over "Zenit" in the last 6 head-to-head matches in the championship (3 draws, 2 losses).
Upcoming Predictions for Football
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).
CSKA are still unstable. And a possible confident victory of "Zenit" on Saturday should help the team regain confidence. But still, we will insure our bet.
We offer to place a handicap (-1.5) for "Zenit" with a coefficient of 4.40 on 1xbet.
