Zenit vs Khimki: No problem for the favorite?
Zenit - Khimki: prediction for the Premier League match (April 5, 2021)
"Zenit" won the last eight matches against "Khimki", but will the tradition continue on April 5? - the answer is in the forecast. How will the match turn out?
"Zenit" made several important mistakes in the first round of the championship, due to which they had to catch up with "Spartak" in the table for some time, but the situation was changed. Sergei Semak's team broke into the first line and currently has an advantage of four points over the second "Spartak", the third "Lokomotiv" is five points behind.
The first matches after the winter break were given to the champion of Russia with great difficulty - "Zenit" left the Russian Cup, losing to "Arsenal" (1:2), and in the confrontation with "Rostov" (2:2) and "Rubin" (1:2) took only one point. However, during the crisis, the "Blue-white-blue" did not fail and won the last two meetings - "CSKA" (3:2) and "Akhmat" (4:0) became victims.
Thus, "Zenit" justifies its status as the main contender for the title, but four points of advantage over "Spartak" do not leave any guarantees, and "Lokomotiv", which has gained momentum, shows that it is quite capable of joining the championship race.
