There will be a sense of deja vu in store for both teams this weekend, as Rostov entertain defending champions Zenit on Saturday.

A little over three weeks since their last meeting, Saturday's hosts can exact revenge against Russia's top side – which is easier said than done. After all, Zenit's last competitive defeat came against Benfica in the Champions League, last December. Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

FK Rostov vs Zenit St. Petersburg Betting Tips

Artem Dzyuba played a pivotal role in Zenit's domestic cup final victories against FK Khimki and Lokomotiv Moscow recently. The striker was again on the scoresheet on Tuesday, as they kicked off the new Russian Premier League campaign with a 2-0 win against Rotor Volgograd.

Dzyuba, who turns 32 later this month, has been heavily influential since signing on a free transfer in the summer of 2015. Now their captain and leading by example with regular goalscoring contributions, he faces a former club in Rostov – where he had two loan spells in 2013 and 2015.

From his last three starts against them, he's netted five and created two assists. It's fair to say they'll be keeping a key eye on him, although there are other creative talents too.

Malcom has been fairly inconsistent since play resumed in June, mixing impressive displays with typically indifferent performances. However, the former Bordeaux and Barcelona man's itching to make up for lost time after a frustrating year in Spain.

After spending £10.8m on Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren last month, the experienced Croatian already has silverware with his new teammates. It'll be interesting to see how he and others defend against Rostov's threats, which include Eidor Shomurodov and Aleksey Ionov.

FK Rostov vs Zenit St. Petersburg Correct Score Predictions

In 18 H2H meetings, Rostov only have four victories (10L, 4D) against Zenit.

After losing 6-1 last October, where Dzyuba scored a hat-trick, they scored first but were again second best in last month's meeting – their final 2019-20 league fixture. Call me sceptical, but I think we'll see a repeat here.
