Zenit v Amkar Perm (Round 15)

Zenit will be looking to go 8 points clear at the top with a win tomorrow.

We have won our last 8 RPL matches scoring 25 goals and other than Rubin Kazan, nobody else has defeated us in a whopping 14 months in the RPL!

Spalleti will have one eye on the Porto game but I expect him to go full strength and bring off players once the win is secure -

Lodygin
Criscito
Lombaerts
Hubocan
Ansaldi
Witsel
Shirokov
Danny
Arshavin
Hulk
Kherzakov

Forecast 4-0.

4-0? I doubt it. But hopefully the team responds after the mid-week embarassment.

Arshavin voted Zenit fans player of the month for October.

He has done ok but Hulk, Shirokov and Lodygin have all done better.

The fan voting is silly, just like when Hulk was winning player of the month last season when he was playing like garbage.

He only played garbage from September - December 2012.

All of this year he has been exceptional and probably the best player in the RPL for the entire calendar year hence why he kept getting voted fan's player of the month despite his colour.

You do watch the match's don't you?

You can't have failed to notice the level Hulk is on compared to any other player in the RPL apart from Danny. This is the whole reason why are we are walking the League.

We're playing poorly for the 4th match in a row. Hoping for a better second half. Amkar is well organized though, not easy to break down.

1-1. I'll take it considering that Lodygin would have gotten a red card + penalty if not for a very poor offside call.

A draw would still mean Zenit have their destiny in their own hands regardless of what Porto do but a win and it would be almost impossible not to qualify. Zenit have got to get this nailed on Wednesday.

If Hubocan is fit, he would start ahead of Neto and the same for Ansaldi, if he is fit, he will play, it would then be between Crisictio and Smolynkov for the other full back berth, Criscito still getting his form back after injury otherwise he would be the first choice full back on the team-sheet. Anyukov is coming towards the end of his Zenit career, I would not surpised to see him leave in the January window. No way in World Cup year he settles for being 4th best full back at his club.

With no Witsel, the Witsel/Fazyulin joint defensive midfield goes out of the window and the Shatov/Fayzulin partnership did not work at all in Porto. Zyrianov nailed on to start and after getting a goal in Portugal and getting over his sickness, Kherzakov to start instead of Arshavin.

One final thing, I don't believe Malafeev is injured, he miricaously was available for the bench a couple of weeks ago and then not again, I believe he was injured, then got fit again but Spalleti told him he would have to be on the Bench as you can hardly drop Lodygin, he didn't take too kindly to this and hence why he has not been involved since. I see Malafeev possibly leaving the club in January too.

Zenit got a great record against Portugese teams = Last 3 matches in Russia scored 10 goals v Porto (3) Benfica (3) and Parkers Farrios (4) winning all 3 matches.

Let's go Zenit!
