The football from the first stage of the Russian championship continues, where on this Tuesday we have the duel of the champion team.
Zenit goes on the field of the newly promoted Volgograd from 18:00 to check the first victory of the new season.
Even though the second league still had a lot to play to really establish the ranking for access to the first echelon, Volgograd was the best team at that time.
He finished FNL on the first position, at a distance of two points, but with an extremely solid game.
With an attack of 41 goals and a defense that received only 21 goals, Volgograd was the team that deserves at least one of the two positions for the Premier League.
The training campaign was also successful, managing not to lose any match, drawing even with CSKA Moscow, score 0-0.
The championship in Russia continued after the return from the pandemic, so the title was won on merit by the team from St. Petersburg.
So the 1st place at the end of the season for Zenit who had an advance of 15 points compared to the 2nd position, being indeed a fully deserved title.
A total domination by Semak’s team that is preparing for a triumphant new year in the Premier League.
The champion team did not even have time for the training period, finishing the season at the end of July.
A few days ago, he played the Super Cup final l won 2-1 in front of Lokomotiv Moscow.

Football Prediction of the Day Volgograd vs Zenith
Volgograd has been waiting for a long time to return to the first echelon and even if the team was ready from this point of view, I think the emotion will be felt in many moments of the game.
The zenith seems extremely fit even after the end of the previous season, but the fear can appear on a physical level where Dzyuba & Co accuses quite a lot of this. However, I expect a tailor-made replay from the champion at the start of this season, and that’s why the bet of 2-3 goals in her favor should be green at the end of the game if she respects her coat of arms, especially as face a newly promoted.
Prediction Today: 2-3 goals Zenith
