Football prediction Zenit sent Orenburg to the second division
Orenburg lost to RPL after losing as a guest to the champion Zenit with 1:4. The draw would have left minimal chances for the team of Konstantin Emelyanov to survive, but St. Petersburg were not ready to make gifts and with three goals in the second half predetermined the fate of their opponent. .
Sergey Semak released a team that was attended by some of the starters, but also some of the players who play less often. The hosts took the lead in the 2nd minute with an own goal by Andrey Malikh. The cross from the flank was on Magomed Ozdoev, and Serdar Azmun failed to stop the ball, but this surprised Malich, who did not orient himself and instead of clearing sent the ball into the door, guarded by Andrei Klimovich. The guests needed a lot of time to recover from a bad start. In the 17th minute Fameye tried and shot, but inaccurately. In the 24th Igor Smolnikov centered from the right flank, but Malcolm failed to make a good header. Zenit`s defense underestimated the opponent`s attacks in several situations and was penalized in the 33rd. Artyom Kulishev delivered a perfect pass in the penalty area, and Fameye fought with two defenders of St. Petersburg and scored for 1:1.
