ZEN vs NIN Dream11 Prediction for Zenit vs Nizhny Novgorod Russian Premier League Live Score Daily Fantasy Football Team Tips & Guide


ZEN vs NIN Dream11: The reigning champions of Zenit Saint-Petersburg come into this round of fixtures at the top-of-the-table. They come into this on the back of a goalless draw away to Ural Yekaterinburg a fortnight ago prior to the international break. That result does mean they have won just two of their last seven matches in all competitions. They come up against a Nizhny Novgorod side that managed to start well this season, following promotion. However, they do now come into this on the back of four successive defeats in the league. Zenit will expect to win this relatively comfortably, despite their poor form.
