Rotor Volgograd Preview – Can Volgograd hold their own?

Newly-promoted, Rotor Volgograd, face a baptism of fire on Tuesday night despite being on home turf at their Volgograd Arena as they play host to last season’s Premier League title-winners, Zenit, and the hosts will be hoping that their solid pre-season form will enable them to get something from this clash.

Volgograd themselves were title-winners of the FNL when the second tier campaign was cut short due to the lockdown, and having put together a string of wins during pre-season, the hosts will be cautiously optimistic here.

Five wins from six matches in the lead-up to this new season in the Russian top flight will give Rotor Volgograd a timely boost ahead of this tough clash, but it’s been 16 years since the hosts were in the domestic top flight and their last fixture at this level ended in a heavy 5-2 defeat at home – to Zenit.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Zenit Preview – Can Zenit get off to a winning start?

All the indicators point towards a fairly comfortable away win here as Zenit bring an impressive sequence of results into this clash which will have been further boosted by their recent 2-1 Super Cup win against Lokomotiv Moscow.

The visitors are unbeaten in their last 15 competitive matches in all competitions, winning 12 of these, and this impressive run of form helped Zenit claim another domestic top flight league title at the end of last season.

Results away from home have also been impressive as Zenit have won eight of their last nine matches on the road scoring 21 goals in the process and conceding just 7 in reply, and with no European distractions at the moment, this could be ominous for the hosts, Rotor Volgograd, here.
