Zenit are one of the best football teams in Russia, they are in a good financial state which helps greatly. Last season the Lions placed only 5th in the Russian Premier League though with 53 points to their credit after 30 matches. Their offensive line showed its high class and scored 46 goals, the defense was pretty solid too allowing only 21 goals. In their last three matches Zenit beat Arsenal Tula with a 1-0 score, Yenisey with a 2-0 score and drew against Inter Milan with a 3-3 score.
Dinamo Minsk and Zenit have never faced each other before. Even though the Belarusians are going to play in front of their home crowd the Russians are just a stronger team so Dinamo is likely to lose.
Prediction for the match: Zenit to win.
