Zenit will play away with Rostov in the second round of the Russian Championship. The match will take place on August 1 in Rostov-on-Don, beginning at 20:00 Moscow time. Rostov – Zenit: forecast , rate, odds, statistics.
Rostov has a very difficult four months ahead. The head coach of the Don team, Valery Karpin, will now also work for the Russian national team.
On the one hand, this is very prestigious for Rostov, their coach was called to save the reputation of the main team of the country, but will he have enough strength? There are doubts.
Rostov started the new championship with a defeat. In the first round, Karpin’s team lost at home to Dynamo Moscow – 0: 2.
Despite all the sympathy, including to the person of Karpin, I must say that “Rostov” played poorly. Dynamo scored both goals before the break, after which they could have increased the advantage several times.
It is very likely that Rostov in the next couple of months will play no better than in the spring. After the winter break, the Don club won only three victories.
“Zenith” is not easy now either. Primarily due to staffing problems. Malcolm plays for Brazil at the Olympics, and Magomed Ozdoev is seriously injured.
In addition, it is not very clear whether Serdar Azmun will remain in the team. The Iranian forward, if rumors in the media are to be believed, is about to move to Bayer.
Nevertheless, Zenit is doing well. Sergey Semak’s team started the season with a striking victory over Lokomotiv (3: 0) in the match for the Russian Super Cup.
And in the first round of the Russian championship, Zenit won against Khimki – 3: 1. It is interesting that the St. Petersburg club was the first to concede, but almost immediately bounced back, and scored two more goals in the second half. Semak’s substitutions worked perfectly, scored by Alexander Erokhin and Alexei Sutormin, who appeared from the bench.
Taking into account the past season Zenit’s unbeaten streak is already 10 matches – eight wins and two draws.
Prediction and rate
You can bet on Rostov in this match for 7.20 , 1xbet promo code offer a draw for 4.33 , and Zenit’s victory – for 1.58 .
Zenit is really the favorite, but still the odds for the guests should be higher.
There is no doubt that the players of Rostov will now also fight for Karpin. People should know that their coach was called to the Russian national team for a reason.
Since Zenit has certain problems, including personnel problems, it can be assumed that Rostov will not lose after all. To drag out a drawKarpin is capable of his team. Zenit without Malcolm and Ozdoev, as well as with Azmun, who seems to be really on the suitcases.
The bet is a draw for 4.33 . Most likely effective.
