On October 20, the match of the third round of the Champions League group stage will take place, in which Russian Zenit will play at home with Italian Juventus. The forecast for this match is given by the well-known commentator of Match TV Konstantin Genich.
Juventus are doing the best in this Champions League so far – Massimiliano Allegri's team has achieved two dry wins, and in the last round the current winner of the Chelsea trophy was outplayed (1-0). In paired matches with Zenit, the Torino team can secure an exit to the playoffs.
In the national championship, Juventus' affairs also improved, winning several victories in a row, including over Roma (1-0) last weekend. Of course, it will be very difficult for Zenit to face such an opponent. Sergey Semak's team is not in the best conditions, which resulted in two consecutive defeats in the RPL with the same score 1:2 - at home from Sochi and away from Arsenal Tula.
Zenit also has personnel problems. The participation of Rakitsky and Azmun in the match is questionable. Lovren also has game problems. Konstantin Genich believes that Zenit can only count on a draw in this meeting. The expert also predicts a small number of goals in this meeting.
