Russia – Premier League: Zenit Petersburg vs Amkar

Zenit Petersburg vs Amkar Betting Tip and Predictions. In the 9th round in Russian Premier League, Zenit Petersburg host Amkar.

Zenit Petersburg don’t play at the high level in the last few league matches, so now CSKA Moscow have 6 points more. Home team is one of the main candidates for the title, so they have to go for three points in this match in order to still stay in a race for the title. Team from Petersburg improve their performance and took three points against Valencia in the first match of the UEFA Champions League four days ago, so they want another win, but this time in Premier league. Zenit have the best attack in league, after they scored 16 goals, but their main problem is defence.

Amkar started this season very good, with two wins in the first three matches of the season, but after that, they are playing terrible. Visitors are without win in the last five matches. They beat Zenit in the previous season and they hope that can repeat that success, but if they would play like in the last 5 matches, it will be hard for them to avoid defeat, especially without few very important players.

Zenit Petersburg vs Amkar injuries and suspensions

Good news for home team is that they have full squad available for this match. On the other side, visitors miss three defenders Dmitriy Belorukov (7/1 d), Ivan Cherenchikov (6/0 d), Robert Arzumanyan (2/0 d). Midfielder Ogude (7/0 m) is also out.

Zenit Petersburg vs Amkar Betting Tip and Predictions

Zenit desperately need win in this match and I believe that they shouldn’t have problems to take all three points. Odd for home win is very poor, but I expect that they will finish the job in the first half-time.

Zenit Petersburg vs Amkar Betting Tip: 1/1 @ 1.57 (Bet365)
