ZEN vs UFA Dream11 Match Prediction

ZEN vs UFA Dream11: Table-topper Zenit Saint Petersburg will be in action as they take on FC Ufa in the Russian Premier League at Krestovsky Stadium, also known as Gazprom Arena, on Monday night (IST). Zenit are the defending champions and are on course to defend their title as they currently hold an eight points advantage at the top of the table. They are unbeaten in the league since losing 1-0 at Lokomotiv Moscow in September last year, a run of eight games in the league. They are also into the semi-final of Russian Cup following a 1-2 win over Akhmat Grozny in the last round.

FC Ufa were beaten 2-0 by FC Krasnodar in their first game after the winter break, a result that ended their five-game unbeaten run in the league. But they are doing better than last season when the relegation was the perennial threat for them. In fact, they had to negotiate a relegation playoff game to keep their top-tier status alive.

Match details:

Host: Zenit Saint Petersburg

Competition: Russian Premier League
Match Venue: Gazprom Arena
Capacity: 68,000

  • Lovro Bizjak: Two goals and one assist this season.
