Vardar vs Zenit Petersburg Prediction & Betting tips
Zenit St. Petersburg is a potential candidate for Europa League profit this season, but of course it must first survive the group stage. In the first round of play, the Russians are visiting Macedonian Vardar, a fierce opponent.
Macedonian football is not highly rated, but the local top club Vardar is a positive exception. The team can count on financial support from the stone-rich Russian owner Samsonenko and, thanks to his help, helped keep four of the last six Macedonian land titles. The red blacks managed to win their last five official duels one by one. That includes the double with Turkish Fenerbahce top club, which convinced the Skopje club to pay off (1-2 win) and home (2-0 win). Vardar can therefore strike a nice ballet.
Of course, Vardar’s selection consists mainly of Macedonians, with a lost Brazilian here and there. The great vedette is, however, the Armenian international Barseghyan, Vardar’s main source of goals. He was responsible for the first hit in the match against Fenerbahce. Ever since his arrival at the Telekom Arena, he was almost nine times in almost nineteen appearances. Since he is often the only attacker in Sedloski’s trainer system, a possible stunt thursday night is mainly in his hands.
Zenit Petersburg :
For Zenit St. Petersburg, participation in the Europa League is a bit of a disappointment. The Russians released nearly eighty million euros to new players this summer, but you’re only taken seriously at European football if you’re active in the Champions League. Nevertheless, the blue whites are not allowed to mourn, because it had not scolded much or FC Utrecht had taken them away completely European football. In the playoffs, Zenit St. Petersburg was almost surprised by the Domstedelingen, but in the extension, the Russian top club saved a sporting and financial tie as a result of a Kokorin goal. The Russians are in any case right, because last season they were eating the cheese cheese by Anderlecht in the 16th finale of the Europa League. Partly because of this slider, a price-free period ended with Lucescu trainer.
However, under the new coach Mancini, Zenit St. Petersburg has found the way up again. Partly due to the many summer transactions, there is now again a real team that could once again be a serious candidate for Europe League profit. Nevertheless, recent results give rise to headache for Mancini, because despite the fact that the team in its own country continues to lead, it did not go beyond a goal-free draw in its last two league games. Both at home against Rostov and out against Dinamo Moscow, Zenit St. Petersburg had an enormous predominance, but did not realize that in goals. Maybe there is a bit of comfort in the star of Mancini? If so, the Italian will soon have to get along with it, because without a hundred percent sharpness, the Russians get into Skopje on Thursday night.
