Zenit St Petersburg are coming off a 2-1 extra time victory over Akhmat Grozny in a Russian Cup fixture. A second half effort from Emiliano Rigoni earned them a full time draw before Yuri Zhirkov struck the winner in extra time.

Striker Artem Dzyuba has scored 11 goals in 19 matches for Zenit this season and is backed at 1.95 in the anytime goalscorer market while the first goal is valued at 4.00.

Zenit St Petersburg vs Ufa Match Up 


If Artem Dzyuba plays he will be one to watch for Zenit having scored six goals in his last seven Russian Premier League matches. He has a good partnership with Sardar Azmoun who has found the net seven times this season.

In contrast Ufa have been unconvincing in attack with striker Lovro Bizjak scoring just two Russian Premier League goals this season. He is likely to struggle against a Zenit defence that has kept clean sheets in their last three matches.
