Spring is coming, and the "green-whites" continue to fight on three fronts.

The season in the RPL will resume in a week, and the situation there is as follows: the Semak team is in the lead, ahead of Dynamo by two points, and the rest are 7 or more points behind.

Game Totals Prediction

In the first meeting, in St. Petersburg, the teams were pleased with the performance, however, only in the first half. The shootout was won by the Spaniards: 2-3. Here it is worth noting an assist from a free kick by the 40-year-old Joaquin and the debut goal of the season by the 35-year-old Guardado. But in the second half of the match, the teams disappointed, never once disturbing the target.

Zenith has nothing to lose, it needs to go forward, it needs to score, it needs to win, so the spectators are waiting for open and spectacular football. Given the high performance and strength of the Pellegrini team, there is no doubt that they will score. At the same time, she is not without sin in defense, so the St. Petersburg team will have chances to score, and they will definitely use at least one. Here the best option for betting would be “both teams to score” for 1.69, but you can try bets with a higher odds: “both teams to score + Total Over (2.5)” for 2.0 or “1X + Total Over (2.5)” for 2.5 . The "Green-Whites" gained a crazy move, so they should not lose, which means you can safely take "Betis with Handicap (0)" for 1.55.
