Zenit St. Petersburg vs Lyon Villeurbanne: Prediction and Betting Tips
Zenit St. Petersburg looking for a three-win streak finish
With one win in their last five matches, Zenit have found themselves falter back from a playoff spot in recent weeks. The Russians are still with a slight chance of catching up Real Madrid at 8th spot with three matches to the conclusion of their regular season, one more than the Spaniards.
With the next three remaining matches at their own Sibur Arena, anything is possible given that they win all three matches. In the 14 matches they played at home this season, coach Xavi Pascual’s team won just seven, which may raise some concerns for the Spaniard.
The Russians have had a much better season than the last one when they finished bottom of the table. They have improved in many ways from last season especially in shooting from all distances and points scored percentage per game.
Lyon Villeurbanne aiming for a better finish than last season
In just their second season in the Euroleague, Lyon have had a similar season to that of their first when they finished 15th and with ten wins and 18 losses before the league was suspended because of Covid 19. This season and with four matches still left for them to play, the French side have won 12 and lost 18.
Coach TJ parker’s team is among the top seven best shooting teams with a 50% shooting record from all distances. They have the third-lowest defensive rebound in the league with 22 rebounds per game on average.
They are on a four-match losing streak and in their last match, they lost at home to Real Madrid with three points shooting 44% from all distances much lower than their season average.
- Zenit have lost their last three home games
- Zenit haven’t scored more than 75 points in the last three home games
- Lyon have won two of their last three away games
- Lyon have scored an average of 75 points in their last three away matches
Zenit St. Petersburg vs Lyon Villeurbanne Prediction
The importance of this match for Zenit will play a big part in the outcome. In their last two matches, the Russian side had 56% and 50% of their shots made. If they can shoot at a similar percentage or higher, they can have a chance of winning.
Coach Pascual knows that his team has to stop their opponents from scoring over 75 points in the match if they want to win, something the Russian side weren’t able to do in their last four defeats.
