Zenit v Torpedo Moscow (Match 2)

Tomorrow 17:00 Moscow time.

I'm expecting 2-3 changes, of course Witsel will come back in again after his mid-week suspension. Possibly either Hulk or Danny to be benched.

Other inclusions - I would expect maybe 2 of the following 4 to start - Kherzakov, Arshavin, Ryazantsev, Solovjev with the latter being possibly the most likely to start ahead of Shatov after a fine cameo appearance in midweek.

Zenit to win by 3+ clear goals.

Crowd? Same as always - Petrovsky full house.

Let's do this Zenit St Pete!

There certainly won't be a Petrovsky full house. That's for sure. Instead it will resemble a CSKA home game.

All of it. And the next home game as well. Then the following three will have the ultras sector closed.

Completely forgot about the ban.

Tymo definitely dropped for Witsel and possible Shatov for Solovjev.

One interesting note, since Ansaldi left, Criscito has re-gained his form as the best full-back in the entire League, he seemed to drop form as soon as Ansaldi came, not sure if was a co-incidence or pressure knowing if he had a bad game Ansaldi would likely start.

I really like Smolynkov and would be really disappointed if he get's dropped anytime soon, we win nearly all of our games he start's in and he is so reminds me of Anyukov in his prime when going forward.

My main man Rondono to get at least 2 today!

Told anyone who would listen how good he was before he signed for Zenit and now, we can all see for ourselves. Brilliant striker, I really hope we don't try and replace him at the moment without giving him a full season to see how good he can be. He is so good when the ball is around shoulder height at controlling it with his gangly legs.

Now, thats what I call a performance! I didn't manage to watch the game, why AVB substituted Garay, just for rotation or he was injured?

Garay had a small niggle in his back, nothing too serious.

Should definitely play in next weeks match v Ural.

That was sad to watch. Torpedo were simply not ready. Arsenal looked much more competent. Torpedo and Amkar the early favourites for relegation.
