Zenit – Betis Free Betting Tips
The leader from Russia faces the 3rd place in La Liga, in a match that will be played at a temperature below 0 degrees.
The Russian championship is currently on winter break, the temperatures are too low to play football in Russia.
However, Zenit played three Atlantic Cup matches in February, a competition taking place in Portugal. Zenit won 1-0 against Midtjylland, FC Copenhagen after penalties and 1-2 against Brondby.
In the Russian championship, Zenit is in first place with 2 points ahead of the 2nd place, after they have accumulated 11 victories, 5 draws and 2 defeats in the 18 matches played so far.
The team from St. Petersburg finished in the CL group on the 3rd place, after Juventus and Chelsea, and in front of FF Malmo.
On the other hand, Real Betis has already started the return and in the last stage it won with the score of 2-4 on the field of the last ranked, Levante. This victory comes after Betis lost on its own field in front of the 7th place occupant, Villarreal. Thus, Betis ranks 3rd, 11 points behind the real leader Madrid, and 4 points ahead of Atl Madrid, the team that is in 5th place and which also wants to take one of the first 4 places.
The fact that the team from southern Spain is moving to St. Petersburg where they will play at a very low temperature is clearly a disadvantage for them. Zenit has a lot of players in the group who are used to the cold, but it will not be too easy for them to play in such a weather, especially considering the fact that they have not played an official match since December.
I expect an Under 2.5 match, bad weather is always an enemy of show football.
UNDER 2.5 GOALS – Odds: 1.95
