PFC Sochi vs Zenit Petersburg prediction has been crafted ahead of the second round match of the Russian Premier League at the Fisht Olympic Stadium. Today’s host will have a hard time withstanding the attacks of the current Russian champion. Despite the support from the home fans, I believe that Zenit are the favourites in this affair. As a result, make sure to read my match preview and grab the best betting tips and correct score predictions.

PFC Sochi vs Zenit Petersburg Betting Tips

Sochi finished second in the FNL in order to secure their place in the top flight of Russian football. The Leopards, as they called them in the South of the country, kicked their new season campaign with a loss to Spartak Moscow 1-0. Interestingly enough, they had more shots than the opponents but failed to capitalize on those attempts. Honestly, when you shoot 13 times and fail to net one in, you’ve had to be doing something wrong.

The visitors started their 2019/20 domestic league campaign on a high note. They came out victorious from a clash with FC Tambov by the score of 2-1. The Anti-aircraft Gunners, as they call them in Russia, continued where they left off last season and set themselves as one the favourites to lift the trophy yet again. On top of all, they are in great form and are undefeated in 13 of their previous 14 matches in the Premier League. Last but not least, the very size and strength of Zenit’s squad provides no dilemma here.

PFC Sochi Latest Team News

The home club provided great resistance in the opening game of the season. However, they came a goal short from winning their first point. Therefore, I expect to see changes in their formation. They are likely to try and defend in the midfield, rather than boxing themselves at their goal and hoping for the best. The 3-5-1-1 formation seems like the best option for them in order to be successful in that quest.

Zenit Petersburg Latest Team News

The visitors didn’t hesitate with the new signings. Even before the season ended, Sergei Semak knew which areas of his squad needed to be improved. Douglas Santos signed from Hamburger SV to improve the options on the left flank. Moreover, Aleksey Sutormin came from Rubin Kazan to further strengthen their attacking line.

PFC Sochi vs Zenit Petersburg Correct Score Prediction

The first official match of the two clubs is not something to miss, as the Leopards try to get the better of the mighty Anti-aircraft Gunners. It is important to note that in their recent five affairs, we saw less than 2.5 goals. It seems as their defensive line is responsible for most of their success, while their attackers are yet to do their part. For those reasons, I believe that combining the away team’s win with less than 2.5 goals is a great option. Moreover, this combination brings the optimal balance of risk and high-rewarding betting odds.
