Spartak Moscow is welcoming Zenit St. Petersburg to Otkritie Arena in round 10 in the Russian Premier League.
Spartak is in great form, and they have lost only 1 of their last 11 games, while they are on a 3-game winning streak. During this stretch, Spartak has scored 9 goals while conceding only 1 goal. Spartak is in 2nd place in the standings with 20 points, 15 scored goals, and 8 conceded goals in 8 games. In their most recent Premier League match against Tambov on the road, Spartak has had 65% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 19 free kicks, and 1 corner kick. It was a while before we saw the first goal of the game, but Spartak was able to find their way to the net in the 79th minute, and then again in the 84th minute. Spartak has won this match 0-2. Larsson has scored 4 goals for Spartak so far this season, while Ponce and Sobolev added 3 goals. Bakaev added 3 assists, while Larsson added 2 more assists. Glushenkov is the only injured player for Spartak as of right now. Spartak is playing well this season, and they are the biggest competition to Zenit so far this season. Spartak will not play in the Europa League or the Champions League this season, which is the perfect opportunity for them to try and take the title from Zenit.
Zenit is also in a fantastic form, and they are at the top of the Premier League standings with 20 points, 20 scored goals, and only 5 conceded goals. Zenit is the best team in the Premier League on both ends this season, and they are the most likely candidate to win the title, again. Dzyuba and Azmoun have each scored 6 goals for Zenit so far this season, while Krugovoy, Yerokhin, Dzyuba, Mostovoy, and Karavaev added 2 assists each. Driussi, Malcom, and Azmoun are all injured, and they will not be in the lineup for this match. In their last Premier League match against Ufa at home, Zenit was the better team with 59% of ball possession, 8 shots on goal, 10 free kicks, and 2 corner kicks. Zenit was outstanding in this game, and they have deservedly won this match 6-0. Zenit will be playing in the Champions League this season, and they will be in Group F with Club Brugge, Borussia Dortmund, and Lazio. Zenit is a good team, and they can play fantastic soccer, and I believe they can go past the group stage in the Champions League.
Spartak hasn’t won any of their last 3 games against Zenit. The trends are mixed here, and Spartak has had success against Zenit at home. Both Spartak and Zenit are playing in great form, but Zenit is slightly better on both ends. I think Spartak can score at least one goal on the road in this matchup, and for that reason, I will pick something on goals.
