Over 2.5 Goals

Five out of the last six meetings between the two sides have ended with at least three goals. Krasnodar comes into this fixture with high score lines in their last five fixtures. The hosts have lost four of their last five games. Three of those loses had a scoreline of 5-0, 3-2 and 6-1. Five of the last six fixtures for Zenit ended with at least three goals. It is why we are backing more than two goals in this match.

Zenit Win

The visitors have won their last four matches by scoring at least two goals in all of them. Two of their winnings have been on the road. They have the fifth best away record in the league. Zenit has lost only once on the road to Krasnodar. Moreover, they have defeated the hosts a record 14 times and registered 2 draws in the last 19 encounters.

Zenit to Score in Both Halves

Zenit currently tops the Russian Premier League table with 54 points in 25 games, which translates to an average of 2.16 points per match. They have conceded 10 away goals in 12 away league games this season. On the other hand,  Krasnodar has not won three of their last four games. Two of those losses have been heavy defeats at home, 5-0 to Akhmat and 3-2 to Dynamo Moscow. Because we are backing Zenit to win this fixture, we also see them finding the net in both halves.

Game Preview: Zenit Looking to Stem their Lead on the Table

While this fixture looks easy for the visitors, our game preview below should shed more light.


Krasnodar are tenth on the Premier League table with 34 points, which translates to 1.36 points per match. The hosts have won seven, drawn 3 three and lost three games at home. They have scored 31 goals in 13 home fixtures so far and conceded 18 hence. It is highly likely they will score on Saturday. However, Krasnodar lost the reverse fixture 3-1 and it could be difficult to win the return leg on Saturday given their current poor run of form.


Zenit has four victories, one loss and one draw in their last six League games. They have scored in all their last 20 matches in all competitions, including in fixtures that they lost. With only 10 goals conceded on the road and 16 scored, Zenit will hope to clinch a fifth consecutive victory at Krasnodar. Moreover, their good run of form will play significance in a fixture that will either narrow or extend their lead at the top of Russian Premier League table.
