Swedes to leave Russia empty-handed

The hosts did well to frustrate Chelsea in their last Champions League outing but still lost 1-0. Despite seeing just a third of the overall possession, they managed to match Tuchel’s men for shots on target and did fashion a few chances.

Malmo were unsurprisingly served a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Juventus in their opening group game. The difference in quality was there for all to see as Juventus created opportunity after opportunity whilst limiting Malmo to few chances. In fact, the Swedes failed to register a single shot on target against the Old Lady.

The home side press extremely well in the opposition half and it’s this style of play that has seen them create the most big chances in the Russian Premier League, where they also happen to be the top scorers.

Sergei Semak’s men have won all four home games this season but have conceded in three and this fixture should follow suit as Zenit will create plenty of opportunities.

The visitors don’t have as much quality as their Russian counterparts here and will likely struggle to break down a resolute Zenit defence. However, they have opened the scoring in four of their last five matches and could get on the scoresheet. We’re expecting the hosts to get the win with a few goals here.
