The game takes place between two teams that are on the opposite ends of the table. Zenit are runaway leaders of the league while Tambov are in the middle of a relegation battle.
Tambov would take this as a game where they have nothing to lose and go on and fight to win. Zenit would take this as a game to make sure that they put the final nails in the coffin.
Zenit are in good form and should win this one easily.
