Venue: Stadion Trud Irkutsk

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 Irkutsk are in the 10th position while the guesting Chita worry at 15th.

There should be plenty of energy on the pitch in this game, as both sides have had time to recuperate from their last game. Let's hope both teams are ready to give it all.

3-0-8 (wins/draws/losses). These are the numbers for Chita when playing away games on artifical turf, which is not the surface they have on their own home stadium (which has grass). Their goal statistics from those eleven matches are 7-21 (scored/conceded).

Chita have a very long trip to this away game, as there's more than 900 kilometers in distance to cover. This could prove a challenge, at least for the supporters.
