Game Totals Prediction

Zenit confidently returned to the top of Russian football in 2024, the team took a step towards the championship and is rushing to the cup. Rubin is in the middle of the table, he won’t be relegated, but he won’t rise high either. The “anti-aircraft gunners” at home very rarely lose points on their field, I think this time the hosts will take three points due to their class, experience and skill. However, I don’t expect a defeat: Rubin will not lose by more than 2 goals – handicap 2 (+1.5) – 1.84.
