Predictions and bets on the match “Zenith” – “Neftchi”
It is not known whether Zenit will play in the optimal composition with Malcolm, Claudinho and other top players. However, even without them, the starting combination of the club from St. Petersburg will be quite strong and clearly stronger than Neftchi. By the way, Makhmudov and Kverkvelia, who are useless in the RPL, will probably marry Azerbaijanis.
The club from Baku only finished third in the championship last season and lost the Cup final to Gabala, without a trophy. Including for this reason, the boss fired the head coach of Romania Laurenciu Regekampf. But no substitute was found for him. So Neftchi will play not only on a foreign field and in an unfamiliar atmosphere, but also without a helmsman. In such conditions, the Azerbaijani club is unlikely to be able to compete with the blue-white-blue.
Recommended rate: The victory of “Zenit” and TB 2.5 for 1.70.
