Competition: Russia Pfl
Competition: Sun 18.October
Match begins: 10:00 (UTC)

The home fans are expecting three points in this fixture, as the home advantage should be put to good use versus a struggling visitor. Zenit II are in the 7th position while the guesting Znamya Truda worry at 12th.

There haven't been much time to rest for the hosts, as they played a Pfl match only four days ago. At least it's nice to return home after that away game at Kolomna.

Znamya Truda have a very long trip to this away game, as there's more than 800 kilometers in distance to cover. This could prove a challenge, at least for the supporters.
