As part of the match of the third round of the group stage of the Cup of Russia, the players of Spartak and Zenit will come face to face. On whose side will success be? Our sports portal gives a forecast for this match.
Spartak Moscow is the current owner of the Russian Cup. So the new tournament "red and white" is still being held at the appropriate level. In the previous meeting, Spartak players were able to beat Fakel with a score of 3 on their own field:0. The team from the capital also won the Moscow derby, in which they measured forces with Lokomotiv. Thus, after 10 rounds played in the framework of the national championship, Spartak is on the 5th line with 19 points.
As for Zenit, Sergey Semak's team is rushing at full speed to its next national champion title. It is worth noting that now the blue-white-blues have 26 points after 10 matches played, and this is 4 points more than the nearest pursuer in the person of Rostov. In the last round of the Russian Cup, St. Petersburg residents unpleasantly surprised their fans. They lost on the road to Krylia Sovetov - 0:2, which became a real sensation. After that, Semak's team played in the national championship with Dynamo, where it was clearly stronger – 2:0.
Statistics and figures:
- Zenit is the favorite of the meeting;Spartak won 3 of the previous 5 meetings;
- Zenit has 4 wins in 5 matches;
- The last face-to-face meeting of the rivals ended with a score of 4:1 in favor of Zenit.
I think that Zenit is stronger than its opponent today and is obliged to outplay it. Asha's bet in this duel will be in favor of the "blue-white-blue" for a very solid quote.
