CSKA continues to fight for the title, but their recent results are not improving their tournament placing. Even before the winter break, the Reds and Blues suffered some setbacks, claiming only one victory in six rounds. Right after the break, they lost to Sochi, 0:2. Fortunately, the team performed flawlessly last week, defeating Krylia Sovetov 4:0, moving to fifth place. In addition, they have already reached the semifinals of the Russian Cup. This week, they played their first game in that phase, sealing a 2-2 draw with Krylya Sovetov.
Zenit is doing just fine in the Premier League. Sergey Semak's charges are racing toward their fifth consecutive title. Now Zenit is leading in the standings, eight points ahead of the nearest pursuer. The Blues and Whites will keep that lead in the remaining eleven rounds. That said, the club could be better now. Last week, they lost on penalties to Dinamo in the Russian Cup - 1:2, ending their participation in the tournament.
Expert Betting Tips
CSKA is contending for the medals, but earning points in their next game will be tough. Their opponents will be Zenit, the current leader. They were knocked out of the Cup last week and will be motivated to recover from their loss. Moreover, the hosts have struggled in recent years in their H2H encounters, losing seven previous meetings. Now Sergey Semak's charges are also the favorites.
Zenit leads in the standings being the most productive team in the Premier League. In 19 held meetings St. Petersburg has already shot 53 goals (2.79 on average per game). After the meeting, Sergei Semak's charges have all the chances to keep this statistic, as they have scored at least two goals in their last three meetings.
