About the event
On November 23, Group H will meet within the group stage of the Champions League 2021/2022 between the teams Zenit (Russia) and Malmo (Sweden). The venue is Malmö New Stadium. The number of places in the match is limited due to the coronavirus infection COVID-19.
Earlier, in the first round of the UEFA Champions League, which took place in St. Petersburg, Zenit beat the Swedes with a score of 4: 0, which showed a significant difference between the teams. Malmö showed aggressive play and loved to put pressure, scoring a lot of free-kicks. But the level of performers was clearly lower.
Despite the fact that the opponents will play at home, Zenit has a clear advantage in this pair. The blue-white-blue have practically lost their chances of reaching the Champions League playoffs, but there is no doubt that the St. Petersburg team will do everything possible to keep the third place in the group and a ticket to the Europa League playoffs.
The second round of the group stage will show all the chances of the representative of our country in the Champions League. Some time ago Zenit lost 0-1 to Chelsea in England. There were some interesting moments, but the brightest at the end was not used by Artyom Dzyuba.
Odds on Malmö - Zenith
Bookmakers are of the opinion that the Zenit-Malmö match will be a good Champions League match: total over 2.5 goals goes for 1.87, and total under 2.5 goals goes for 2.03. If the home team scores, the odds are 1.13. The guest goal is available from the bookmakers with the odds of 1.68. They offer bets on “both to score” at odds of 1.94.
In 5 of Zenit's last 7 home games in the Champions League and 4 previous Malmös, both teams have left the field with goals scored. So you can actually place a both-to-score bet on this odds game.
Zenit have scored first in the Champions League in 9 of their last 11 home matches. The odds for the guests to open the score in this match is 1.52.
To bet on Zenit to win this match, you can bet with odds of 2.06. Bets on Malmö's victory in the next match are offered at odds of 3.50. The odds for a draw in this match are 4.00.
Zenit striker Artem Dzyuba is the author of 14 goals (9 goals and 5 assists). Only the Hulk has more assists in the Champions League (10 goals and 8 assists). You can bet on Dziuba's goal in the upcoming match at odds of 2.05.
The Swedish team played three times with Russian clubs in all official tournaments and recorded only one victory and two losses. The probability that Malmö will not concede a goal in the upcoming match is estimated at the odds of 1.85.
If not here, then where will Zenit win the Champions League? In fact, the matches with Malmö are practically the only chance for the St. Petersburg club to earn points and compete for at least third place in the group.
The Scandinavians have no points in the group and go to the match in last place in the standings. They have already lost their chances of participating in the Champions League playoffs, but can still fight for a place in the Europa League. Malmö will remain in Group H only if there is a draw or a defeat.
If the Petersburgers do not allow defeats in the upcoming match, they will definitely not go down below 3rd place in the quartet. In case of a tie, they will retain their third place and advance to the Europa League playoffs. The possibility that Zenit will take third place is estimated at about 1. Coach Sergei Semak continues to work with a team that is in a controversial shape. Recently, the team has been able to demonstrate more organized defense on the road.
Zenit, as expected, lost in the first round to Chelsea. But, oddly enough, the Russian champion looked very dignified. In any case, it's safe to say that Chelsea had a hard time. The team were defeated by Chelsea 0-1 in the group stage match of the 1st round.
The Swedish team has problems defensively, conceding 12 goals in four Champions League matches, that is, exactly three goals per game. In turn, Malmö never managed to score, which, of course, makes the Scandinavians nervous. The future owner will finally try to score and send a nasty zero to one. We expect risky football and a goal from the Scandinavians.
In their national championship, Malmö is a fairly productive team, while Zenit regularly loses both in the Champions League and on the domestic arena. We expect activity and goals from the Swedes.

Result and summary
FC Malmo and FC Zenit St. Petersburg finished 1-1 in the UEFA Champions League group match on Tuesday 23 November 2021. Here are the highlights of the match.
Despite the completely insane ending of the season, Jon Dahl Thomasson decided to start it with some really strong eleven players. Obviously, the coach wanted to give the club one last chance to compete for third place in the group.
Malmö started the match well. The team was in complete control of its rivals, and the central trio of Innocent, Peña and Levitski distinguished themselves by playing the ball and dribbling it on the field. Of course, Zenith's individual skill made itself felt, but overall, Malmö managed the game well.
After neat wall play with young Velko, Søren did what he usually did against IFK Gothenburg, pushing the ball down and controlling it, and at the twenty-ninth minute the score was 1-0.
At the beginning of the second half, a penalty kick was awarded to Malmö, which beat Dziuba, but Johan Dalin saved the team. A few minutes later, Zenit scored 1: 1 with a deep pass into the penalty area, but the goal was canceled as the ball was offside.
The second half was generally nervous, and the Latvian referee was to blame for this, who clearly did not understand the thread of the game. He actively waved yellow cards, and eventually kicked Chistyakov out to the delight of Malmö fans. But then the stadium began to chant: "UEFA is the mafia" when the referee awarded a new penalty to Dalin's goal. Rakitskiy shot the ball and didn't miss.
1: 1. In the spring, Zenit secured a place in European tournaments.
