Both Zenit and Krylia Sovetov proved to be formidable opponents. Zenit seem to be in shaky form in recent matches, losing to teams that statistically should have dominated them such as Orenburg and Lokomotiv. This shows their vulnerability. However, in the match with Krylia Sovetov, Zenit demonstrates clear superiority.
The shape of the Wings of the Soviets is also commendable. The victory over Spartak is especially noticeable. However, there has been inconsistency in their performances: in matches such as the 2-0 defeat to Paris NN, they had possession but were ineffective.
The number of goals per match for both teams is significantly higher than 2.5, which indicates their attacking potential. Zenit's average is 3 goals per match, while Krylia Sovetov's is slightly higher - 3.5.
If we look at the statistics of ball possession, then Zenit usually has more possession, but this does not always lead to victories. As for Krylia Sovetov, their possession varies, but they tend to score even when they are not dominating the game.
Both Zenit and Krylya Sovetov show a tendency to score and concede in their matches. The average goals per game for both teams hovers around 3, making this a statistically likely bet. While the team's form changes, the goal stats remain the same, leading us to believe that at least 3 goals could be scored in this match.
Historically, Zenit has dominated Krylia Sovetov in their head-to-head matches. While Zenit's form may not have been flawless lately, they have consistently performed well against Krylia Sovetov.
