Zenit to Win

It is difficult to look beyond Zenit Saint Petersburg in coming away with the three points on offer. It is not just their impressive form that saw them come back from a goal down to ragdoll Khimki in their own backyard but also the form of their latest challengers. Rostov had no answer for Dynamo Moscow's attack last time around and have a far tougher task against the Champions.

BTTS – Yes

There are no doubts about the attacking pedigree of Zenit. However, question marks remain on their defensive capabilities. The fact that Zenit are on the road again also adds credence to some lapse in concentration at the back. Couple this with Rostov's own attacking prowess, which saw them score seven goals prior to their defeat to Dynamo Moscow, and we should have both teams getting on the scoreboard.

Over 2.5 Goals

Three of Zenit's last five away fixtures have seen three goals or more, the other two being goalless draws. However, they have scored ten goals in that period. It stands at two in five for Rostov's home fixtures in the Premier League. With three of their last four H2H fixgures ending in Over 2.5 goals, this match should follow the trend and provide us plenty of goalmouth action.

Match Preview of Rostov vs Zenit

FC Rostov

Rostov have won just one of their last five Premier League meetings with Zenit St Petersburg and it will be a cause of concern for Valeri Karpin. The fact that the Tough Guys folded in their opening round match would not have helped the confidence of the fans. Other problems are beseeching Rostov, especially with a downsized squad at their disposal. With only two recognized forwards, Rostov will have a tall order to ensure the goals keep on coming.

Zenit St Petersburg

Sergei Semak has transformed Zenit into a winning machine. They have not lost in their last fourteen games, and more importantly, remained unbeaten in their last six away matches. Zenit has become a force of nature and no one has stood up to their challenge. With their forwards scoring goals for fun, it looks unlikely they will be stopped any time soon. Both Sardar Azmoun and Alex Sutormin got on the scoreboard against Khimki, and more of the same is expected from them against FC Rostov.
