Tom vs Zenit (Round 12)

Shirokov, Kerzhakov and Ansaldi did not travel with the team. I'm hearing that Danny and Hulk might get rested as well. Heavy rotation is expected. Even Bukharov might play.

Still, our squad is deep enough to beat Tom.

I still expect us to win. Hopefully the pitch isn't terrible over there.

We will smash em.

Bukharov hat-trick.

Me man Klebsy will be taking his Bukharov Zenit top out of his wardrobe and popping it on before the match starts whilst wearing his Fayzulin and Bukharov slippers.

I feel like a big game for Arshavin is coming. 2 goals + assist. Book it!

I'm predicting our best defender Criscito will finally get his first start of the season after 8 months out.

Here is the predicted line up

Lodygin - Russia no1 keeper
Smolynkov - Russian Maldini
Hubocan - Hubocan Superman
Lombaerts - Commander
Criscito - Best defender in the RPL
Witsel - Classy Belgium
Fayzulin - One of me man Klebsys Russian favourites
Shatov - Well he certinately aint Shitov
Arshavin - 5 years ago like Akinfeev he was good, at this moment he is doing better than Akinfeev 5 years later
Hulk - Booom - One of the 2 top players in the RPL with Danny. Voted Russian Premier League player of the month last season
Bukharov - The man Bukha the mack daddy, the Russian Messi and me man Klebsys own personal Zenit favourite. If he scores today you will hear Klebsy roar like a Lion from Portugal anywhere in the World. He really does love the Bukha.

The bench will be jam packed

Zyrianov, Tymoshuck, Danny, Anyukov, Bystrov and Neto.

Prediction Tom 0 Zenit St Petersburg 14

With Spartak currently drawing, if results stay the same and we win today we will go 5 clear at the top.

We have already played 2 out of 3 hardest matches away from home too (Dynamo and Rubin) and just have the Spartak away match as a tough away match left.

Zenit Champion!

Oh yer baby Criscito is back! The best defender in the RPL finally gets a start after 8 months back. Welcome back Dominico Criscito! We have not rested, players we are going for it today to possibly 5 clear unless Spartak score in there match in the last 15 minutes.

Lodygin
Smolynkov
Hubocan
Lombaerts
Criscito
Witsel
Zyryanov
Shatov
Arshavin
Danny
Hulk

Not sure who will be the striker, either Shatov, Arshavin or Hulk or we could play 4-6-0.

Very strong Bench too -

Rudakov, Baburin, Anyukov, Lukovic, Neto, Bystrov, Fayzulin, Tymoshchuk, Mogilevets, Bukharov.

Let's not forget we are without Malafeev, Shirokov, Ansaldi and Kherzakov too.

Amazing day for Zenit and they haven't kicked a ball yet.

Win today and we go 5 points clear at the top and we already have a +17 goal difference!

Hulk is getting some rough treatment, 2 yellow cards in a minute for fouls on him.

That should have been another yellow for yet another foul on Hulk.

I've a feeling one of the Tomsk players will get sent off.

0-2 Booom!

Brilliant back heel set up a chance for Hulk who hit the inside of the post before the main man Danny scores!

arshavin with two sick passes.

undeserved result for tom,they are not passing the ball badly,no defense of course but still create a very good chance to score,bad defending by zenit cb's.

zenit last 30 meters make all the difference in the russian league.

3-0 witsel,final result.

Tom had chances to score,neto played in the second half and was very poor.

if zenit beats cska in next game bye bye title cska 100 per cent.

Zenit 5 points clear, scoring 15 goals in the last 4 matches.

Can't wait to smash CSKA in a little under 2 weeks.

Good win. I thought Arshavin played his best match of the season. Was instrumental in all three goals. Good to see Criscito play 90 minutes as well. With everyone healthy there's going to be a lot of competition for playing time. Nobody will be complacent. Hopefully our good run of form starts carrying over to the CL at some point. Against Porto would be nice.

We got some damn healthy competition at the full back positions - Ansaldi, Anyukov, Smolynkov and Criscito would all walk into any other team in the RPL.
