Zenit St. Petersburg in good form ahead of this crucial UCL clash

Russian champions Zenit St. Petersburg are playing in the Champions League for the third consecutive year. Notably, Zenit didn’t get past the group stages in the last two seasons. They did, however, reach the round of 16 in the 2015/16 edition. Last season they gathered just one point from a draw against Club Brugge.

Nevertheless, the Zeniters look to be in better form despite losing their first match to Chelsea. Indeed, coach Sergei Semak’s team are undefeated in their domestic league in ten matches. During their first match at Stamford Bridge, Zenit had their chances to score, In fact, Semak’s men had six goal attempts with two of them on target, the same number as Chelsea.

Zenit Key points

  • Zenit scored in nine of their last ten matches
  • BTTS happened in Zenit’s eight of the last ten games
  • The average goals scored by Zenit in ten matches is 2.1

Malmo FF to turn around their horrible record in Europe

Malmo are making headlines for the wrong reasons ahead of this Group H clash. The Swedish side are the only team to concede 20 goals in four matches. Moreover, the Blue Ones won just one of their last 23 away matches in Europe (drew six, lost 16).

Despite losing 3-0 in their opening match to Juventus, Malmo faced eight shots on target in that match. To point out, that was the most shots against in any match in the first round of the UCL this season. In any case, coach Tomasson needs to find a tough defensive tactic to adopt. Encouragingly, Malmo won their last match 5-1 which may boost their confidence. 

Malmo key points

  • Zenit scored in all their last three away games
  • BTTS happened in Zenit’s six of the last ten games
  • Three or fewer goals were scored in Malmo’s last five away games

Zenit St. Petersburg vs Malmo FF Prediction

A 1-0 loss to Chelsea is not considered a disastrous defeat for Zenit. Especially if we consider the way they played and created some chances to score. Also, Zenit’s current form is much better than that of Malmo’s. 

In addition, taking into consideration Malmo’s record in European football. Consequently, all these aspects make Zenit the firm favorites to win this match. With Vbet offering odds of 1.57.

Thus, we will back the bet in the combos section at Vbet of double chance and total goal scored. We think that combination has a good chance of being realized in this match.
