Zenit v UFA (Match 4 16/08/2014 17:00 Moscow time)

Top of the Table Zenit St Petersburg will be bidding to win their 4th straight League match against new comers UFA.

Zenit are bolstered by their new 13 Million signing, Javia Garcia from Manchester City.

With an impeding Champions League match v Standard Liege, their will be some squad rotation, I am expecting Garay to be fit and start.

Projected line up

Malafeev
Hubocan
Garay
Lombaerts
Anyukov
Solovjev
Witsel
Garcia
Danny
Ryantsev
Kherzakov

Bench - Lodygin, Criscito, Fayzulin, Hulk, Rondon, Smolynkov, Shatov, Arshavin (might possibly start for Danny).

Not sure how match fit Garcia is but with Witsel awaiting on an appeal v the Red Card in Cyprus, we might need to get Garcia bedded in before the Liege match with Witsel absence being very important for us.

Zenit to win by 3+ goals again.

One of the starting CB to be amongst the goals.

Remember last weeks prediction - Zenit to win by 3+ goals and Rondon to score twice. These were both spot on.

Let's do this Zenit!

Yep, I'm not 100 percent convinced he will quite rotate as much I predicted but I expect at least 4 different players minimum to start on Saturday who didn't start v Ural, my line up has 8 different starters from the last game!

AVB said Javi won't play against Ufa.

Well Solovyov is playing for Zenit-2 right now so we won't see him today. Too bad.

Garay or Lombaerts to score today, Zenfica to win by 3 plus goals.

What a clumsy, stupid penalty to concede. Possession is like 80/20, no surprise. Every attack coming through Hulk.

Garay wins literally every header. He's such a calming influence back there.

Cracking hit from that Ufa player to almost equalize. Wonder if Javi Garcia will come on in the 2nd half.

AVB said in the press conference that he wouldn't, but he put him on the bench anyway. So...maybe?

Hulk with a great piece of skill and turn of pace, nearly smashed the net down but unfortunately it went over.
