In one of the friendly matches, the players of Zenit St. Petersburg and Lusail City will come face to face. Will the leader of the Russian championship be able to defeat his opponent in a face-to-face meeting? Our sports portal evaluates the opponents' chances of success. Zenit
Zenit St. Petersburg confidently performs in the national championship. The team from St. Petersburg finished the first part of the season on the first line. After 17 rounds played, the "blue-white-blue" got 42 points to their asset, which they got due to 13 wins and 3 draws. The gap from the nearest pursuer in the person of the capital Spartak is 6 points, and this is a lot, given the fact that the championship will soon reach the finish line. In the Russian Cup, Sergei Semak's wards could not qualify for the top bracket, but they got the opportunity to fight for the honorary trophy through the lower part of the grid, with matches with less status teams.
Lusail City is a less high-status team from the second division of Qatar. According to statistics, she played her last matches back in early October, and then the club lost in a face-to-face meeting to the leader in the person of Al-Khor (1:2). The visiting team will not be able to show anything in the match with the leader of the Russian championship, since it is a lower-class club and has too weak a squad, far from the one that Sergei Semak has, so it is not surprising to see the Qatari team as an obvious underdog of the confrontation.
Statistics and figures: Zenit is the favorite of the meeting;
- St. Petersburg have a 5-match series without defeats;
- Lusail City has 3 defeats in 5 matches;
- Previously, the rivals did not intersect in face-to-face matches.
Zenit is stronger than its opponent and must prove it not by deed.
I believe that the residents of St. Petersburg will be able to win a landslide victory over their opponent. It is possible that the "blue-white-blue" will completely defeat their opponent.
