Analysis and prediction of the match of the 8th round of the RPL Ural – Zenit
In the Russian Premier League, the seventh round has died down, but there were some incidents. The tentacles of the coronavirus don’t want to let go of the world of sports. First, the match between Krasnodar was canceled and a technical defeat for Rotor was counted. This morning it became known about the postponement of the match between Rostov and Volgograd.
CSKA Moscow – Metallurg. Forecast: Nikitin, Goldobin and Okulov will not allow Mozyakin to reach the gate. The last four head-to-head matches red-blue won in regulation time.
Fortunately, another couple, who will play on September 19, have no problems. The program of the eighth round will be continued by the Yekaterinburg “Ural” and the St. Petersburg “Zenith”. The meeting will begin at 16:30 Moscow time and will be held at the Yekaterinburg Arena stadium.
Ural is performing quite well in the new season. Of course, there are not enough victories, but the club suffered only two defeats in eight games. By the way, now he is in the middle of the Russian Premier League standings with nine points. More than worthy.
The last round, by the way, was one of the two victories of the “bumblebees”. They accepted the unfortunate Khimki and won with a score of 3: 1. In some places, the guests even looked sharper in attack, but the hosts managed to famously take advantage of the standard provisions. And the latter had more time possession of the ball.
“Irtysh” – “Wings of the Soviets”. Prediction: Gatskan, Frolov and Poluyakhtov will finish off the worst FNL club. Three weeks ago, Samara defeated Omsk in the Russian Cup with a score of 5: 0.
Zenit, after the misfire of Spartak, regained its leadership in the standings of the Russian championship. For seven games, the reigning champion of the country scored 16 points. However, the pursuers are literally stepping on their heels: Sochi has 15 points, Spartak has 14, CSKA has 13.
In the last game, the blue-white-blues hosted Arsenal in St. Petersburg and won (3: 1). Even before the break, they were able to make a comfortable 2-0 and quietly went to rest. In the second half, the guests took one goal back, but substitute Alexander Erokhin scored the third goal from the substitute Yuri Zhirkov and put an end to it.
The previous match between Ural and Zenit ended with a score of 7: 1 in favor of the Petersburgers. However, now we would not expect such outstanding performance from the teams. There are several reasons for this.
“Lyon” – “Nim”. Forecast: Memphis Depay, Dembele and Rudy Garcia will suffer from the “crocodiles”. Crocodiles have scored seven goals in three games in the new season of League 1.
Firstly, that game was last season in St. Petersburg. Now the meeting will take place on the field of Yekaterinburg, and Sergei Semak’s wards in the current RPL draw with departures are not so smooth. Only four goals in four outings and only seven out of 12 possible points. The result is decent, but no more.
At the same time, Ural has already managed to take points from both Lokomotiv (1: 1) and Krasnodar (1: 0). This happened largely thanks to competent defense. It should be noted that after the change of the head coach, the Yekaterinburg team significantly improved in defense and began to concede less often.
With the arrival of goalkeeper Ilya Pomazun, the “bumblebees” have become even more reliable in the rear. The young CSKA goalkeeper conceded only three goals in five games, and in games with the railroad workers and the bulls, he became a hero at all, having made several cool rescues. Now he has to prove himself again. The current champion will not leave without work.
Khamzat Chimaev – Gerald Mirshert. Fight prediction: noisy Swede from Chechnya will put the UFC on its ears. Chimaev will fight for the third time in two months. The previous ones ended quickly.
In our opinion, the bet total less than 3 balls for the odds of 1.81 looks interesting. The point is that more than two goals were not scored in six out of seven matches with the participation of Ural. The chances of guests, of course, are higher, but the Urals are unlikely to miss a lot.
Forecast and bets on the Russian championship match “Ural” – “Zenit” on September 19
Of course, Zenit will be the favorite in the upcoming match with Ural. However, we would not wait for many goals here. Yekaterinburg residents have already managed to upset Lokomotiv and Krasnodar in their field. Now they play very competently in defense, and the new goalkeeper Ilya Pomazun is still playing reliably.
Bet : total under 3 goals per odds 1.81.
