One of the most interesting games scheduled this Monday will put Zenit against Orenburg at 17:30, UK time. The protagonists are playing in the 11th Round of Russian Premier League in an unbalanced match, since the hosts are the big favourites.

Saturday we had some surprising results like the draw between Ingolstadt vs Dortmund 3-3 and AC Milan vs Juventus, withthe hosts winning 1-0, but Sunday was a little better. I had two winning predictions at RB Leipzig vs Werder, being close to hit the final score too.


The host team is coming into this game in a good shape, with no defeat this season in an official game.

They are on the second position, with a gain of 22 points and a 24-8 goal difference

Even if they started this season with two draws, Lucescu's team succeded then four wins in a row with only one goal conceded. Zenit Petersburg did a good job in Europa League too, winning the last three matches, being with one foot in the next round of the competition.

Zenit Petersburg probable lineup (4-2-3-1):Lodygin - Criscito, Lombaerts, Novoseltsev, Anyukov - Witsel, Garcia - Shatov, Giuliano, Jojorin - Dzyuba.

Missing players:Danny, Igor Smolnikov are not able to play this game because they are injured, while Luis Neto is suspended.


Orenburg have just one win, four draws and five losses after 10 games, withseven points in their account, like Samara.

The visitors started the season with two losses followed by four draws in a row. They defeated Tomsk in the previous round, 3-1 at home. They were leading with two goals at half time and thenPavel Nekhajchik scored the 3rd goal in the second part.

Orenburg probable lineup (4-1-4-1):Gutor - Malykh, Ade, Andreev, Poluyakhtov - Afonin - Efremov, Pomerko, Georgiev, Nekhajchik - Delijkin.

Missing players (doubts):Vladimir Parnyakov, Georgiy Gabulov, Anzor Sanaia.
