ROS vs ZEN Dream11 Team Prediction Tips for FC Rostov vs Zenit Russian Premier League Live Score 1 August

Share

ROS vs ZEN Dream11 Prediction: CSKA Moscow welcome Lokomotiv Moscow at the VEB Arena in the Russian Premier League on Saturday, with both sides starting off their campaigns with wins. CSKA Moscow faced Ufa in their first game of the season. Lokomotiv Moscow also had a strong start to their campaign. Marko Nikolic’s side beat Arsenal Tula 3-1 in their opening fixture.

ROS vs ZEN Dream11 Prediction

Rostov’s opening day 2-0 defeat at home to Dinamo Moscow hasn’t been a good indication of whether or not they can stay in touch with the top three or four this season. They come up against the champions Zenit Saint-Petersburg side that are looking to defend their title and began well with a comfortable 3-1 defeat away to Khimki despite going 1-0 down in the first-half. This should be a fairly comfortable away win.

Date: 1 August, Sunday
Time: 10:30 PM (IST)

Zenit pulled off a solid 3-1 win at Moscow last weekend and are favourites to get the three points on Sunday. In our ROS vs ZEN Today Match Prediction odds, we back for a 2-0 win for Zenit in this match.
