Chita form and stats

Chita's struggle is real here with only 5 points collected from 6 Pfl games. The win-draw-lost numbers are ugly: 1-2-3.

In their previous game, the manager M. Shvetsov led his Chita to a defeat in the Pfl match away at Murom. The manager is hoping to put things right immediately here. In the preceding match a 2-1 victory visiting Kazanka.

The match schedule is unforgiving for Chita as they have a new game in only three days, a Pfl match thankfully also at home. Zvezda Sint Petersburg are visiting.

Chita are certainly not overdoing their scoring at home in league matches, having created 7 goals in 6 games. With more than 1,5 conceded goals on average, the Chita defense is not exactly impregnable. 10 goals conceded from 6 games. You can find more goal stats on the Statistics tab above.

Zenit II form and stats

There's been little loot from Zenit II's travels as they have only collected 8 points from 8 away games in the Pfl. Zenit II only have 2 wins to counter their 4 defeats and 2 draws.

Zenit II won their last game, 1-0 versus Kolomna played at home. Preceding that game, the 1-3 loss visiting Znamya Truda's place.

S. Sazonov came off the bench to score the winning goal in the match against Kolomna last time out, making the manager V. Radimov feel like a tactical genius. The end of the last match, against Kolomna, was very satisfying as S. Sazonov scored the winning goal deep into overtime.

The visiting Zenit have scored more than one goal per away game in the league so far. The grand total is 9 goals from 8 games. Zenit struggle to build an impenetrable defensive wall in away matches with a total of 12 goals conceded from these games.

Head 2 Head

The most recent history between these sides is the Zenit II - Chita 3-0 played earlier this season.
