Ural v Zenit (Match 3) 13/08/2014

Top of the Table Zenit St Petersburg will be looking to cement their place at the top with victory of Ural.

Ural normally draw decent crowds for the big matches and this should be no different with a crowd of around 25,000.

No team news at the moment, Garay went off with a niggle in his back in yesterday's 8-1 win but should to be fit. There might be a bit of squad rotation with the matches coming thick and fast and a European Champions League qualifier around the corner.

Will Javi Garcia be a confirmed Zenit player by the time this fixture comes around? I am expecting some form of press release in the next 24 hours.

I want Solovyov to be given some decent time to show himself. Looked good in his cameo so far and in preseason.

Garay and Malafeev haven't travelled.

Will probably be -

Lodygin
Criscito
Lombarts
Neto
Smolynkov
Danny
Witsel
Fayzulin
Shatov
Hulk
Rondon

Possiblity of maybe a couple of players being rotated, main contenders for a starting place - Anyukov and Kherzakov.

Let's do this Zenit!

I expect some more changes. AVB threatened so post-match last game. Maybe a first start for Solovyov?

Ural playing pretty well. They probably deserve not to be behind so far.

Tough game. Glad to get the win. Surprised AVB didn't rotate more, team looks tired from all the games. Hopefully next game we see some fresh faces.

The league admitted that they didn't want us to play any high profile games with no fans that's why we're starting with Torpedo and Ufa

We can't stop winning.

Brilliant goal by Danny and Rondon's was a decent finish too. Rondon upto 12 goals in 14 Zenit appearances.

Let's keep this going.

Lol AVB has got his own Instagram page!

He has already uploaded a photo of him, the coaches/trainers on the Plane back to St Petersburg!
