I only sent subscribers one selection today, with two bets and Sibir have already obliged, winning 1-0. Surprisingly, Zenit were gambled on and Sibir actually drifted to 2.06 and 3.95 respectively, for the two bets.
SIBIR NOVOSIBIRSK - ZENIT ST PETERSBURG
Regular readers will know that I am a big fan of Zenit, we were with them at circa 20.0 to win the UEFA Cup last year and I feel that they will go well in the Champions League, providing they are not big sellers in the next couple of weeks. They started their domestic season very slowly, but have bit by bit , got going again and now lie just 8 points off the top, with a game in hand. At the weekend, they travel to league leaders Rubin, in what is obviously a vital game.
Later this month they have the Supercup match with Manchester United and the CL groups will still be upon us, under the circumstances, they need the domestic cup and this game in particular, like another hole in the head ! Novosibirsk is the third biggest city in Russia, but is actually in Siberia and some 3,000km + from St Petersburg. I cannot believe they (Zenit) want any more fixture congestion and would be surprised if they progress today.
This will not be easy in any case, Sibir are a Division 1 side, but were close to promotion last season and are very tough to beat at home, as you might imagine. They have lost just 3 from 33 in the league, over the last season and a half and conceded far less than a goal per game. They will obviously be "up" for today and look vastly overpriced.
7 points Sibir +1/2 ball 1.91 asian line.
1.5 points Sibir to win 3.60 general quote.
