Analysis and forecast for the match of the 2nd round of the Russian Championship “Zenith” – “Krylya Sovetov” (22.07.2022)
On Friday, July 22, numerous Zenit fans will gather in the stands of the Gazprom Arena stadium to see with their own eyes the first victory of Semak’s wards in the new season. Most of the fans did not expect a fiasco from their favorites in the game of the first round with Khimki. The draw outcome 1:1 left a lot of questions for the team. Will the owners be able to redeem themselves for the failure?

And then the opponent got not the easiest – “Wings of the Soviets” in the last round slammed on the road “Orenburg” (4:2). That’s anxious in the soul of St. Petersburg fans. Nevertheless, in terms of recruiting players and financing conditions, Zenit is far superior to its upcoming opponent. But we already know that specific players decide everything on the field.
Mostovoy: “Zenith” will not become the champion of Russia without their legionnaires.
Footballers from St. Petersburg played the starting match of the championship in Khimki. The preliminary alignment was traditionally in favor of Zenit – the team not only retained the starting lineup, but even strengthened. The acquisition in the offseason of performers of the level of Bakaev, Cassierra and Rodrigao can hardly be afforded by another club in the league in the current conditions.
During the off-season, Sergei Semak ran in a new tactical scheme in control meetings. The decision to switch to a 4-3-3 formation is quite bold for a coach. He taught the fans a long time ago to play cautiously with an emphasis on defense, and here is a revolution. The premiere of Semak’s new concept came at the Super Bowl. The Zenit players quite easily dismantled Spartak for parts, which, to their misfortune, accepted the challenge and decided to compete in open football.

The desire to play an attack can be easily explained by the drop in the level of RPL teams. In most cases, Zenit will have to deal with the issue of overcoming the saturated defense of the enemy, and here additional players in the attack group will come in handy. The new tactical principles of the hosts are an important factor in forecasting.
Khimki is the perfect sparring partner to test team play. From the first minutes, Zenit marked its advantage in ball control and speed. The players succeeded in beautiful combinations, one of which led to a goal scored. Claudinho converted a well-timed flank pass into a discount for Wendel, who scored with a spectacular shot.
It seemed that now nothing shines for the team of Sergey Yuran and there will be another rout. But gradually the thought left the actions of the Zenit players. They often got confused in positional attacks, opening in other areas, and lost the ball. Ball possession was at 67%, but it was not possible to receive dividends from such an advantage. Only seven shots on goal, of which only four disturbed the goalkeeper.

Khimki, in turn, got room for counterattacks, and dangerous raids on Odoevsky’s penalty area began to be repeated with a frightening frequency for the Zenit coaching staff. The actions of the defense left much to be desired, so the opponent had chances to score. But they realized only one – Mirzov did not turn off from the episode and with an accurate blow equalized the score at the end of the match.
Arshavin named the player who will leave Zenit in the summer.
It is commendable for the reigning champion to act in an attacking manner. It is very likely that in a week Sergey Semak will tweak the fine settings of the team game, and this will lead to victory. The hosts have great potential, especially in the offensive line. The desire to rehabilitate for the failure of the opening match will drive Zenit into the attack from the first minutes and, most likely, will not allow them to stop at one or two goals scored. You can expect at least three goals.
Zenith’s opponent is also not a supporter of a deaf defense. Krylya Sovetov shipped four balls to Orenburg in just 45 minutes. Nevertheless, Samarans have big problems in defense. Even Orenburg’s not-too-skillful attack twice found a gap in the defensive formations of Igor Osinkin’s team. It is unlikely that they will be able to hold back the Zenit attack, which is twice as talented as the Orenburgers.
Analysis of face-to-face meetings states the great advantage of the club from St. Petersburg. The rivals played 48 matches, 27 of which were won by Zenit players. In addition, the hosts have prevailed over the “Wings of the Soviets” in seven of the last eight head-to-head games in the city on the banks of the Neva. And in six successful matches for Zenit, at least three goals were scored.
“Kairat” – “Kishvarda”. Even better without Kurban Berdyev
This circumstance, along with the desire of Sergei Semak to play in an attacking manner, allows us to take a closer look at the combined outcome. We would take the victory of Zenit and the total over 2.5 goals with a strong odds of 1.98. From a bet of 1000 rubles, the winnings will be 1980 rubles. Should be fun.
