Over the years Artem Dzyuba has established himself as one of the best players in the Russian Premier League. The 196cm-tall forward started his senior career at Spartak Moscow and after ending his loan spells with Tom Tomsk and Rostov, he moved to Zenit St. Petersburg in 2015.
Artem Dzyuba scored 15 goals for Zenitchiki in the 2015-16 Russian Premier League campaign, while providing nine assists for his team-mates.
The Russian forward was not as successful as the 2016/2017 season, scoring 13 goals in 26 appearances for Roberto Mancini's side, as well as six assists.
Dzyuba made his debut for the Russia national football team in November 2011 in a friendly against Greece, but he did not represent Russia at the Euro 2012 finals.
The Zenit striker scored his first goal for the Russian national team on 8 September 2014 in a 4-0 win over Liechtenstein. Artem Dzyuba was born in Moscow (Soviet Union) on August 22, 1988 and is a product of the Spartak Moscow football school.
Juventus is considered to be one of the biggest European football clubs. The Bianconeri (White and Black) have won two Champions League trophies (1985, 1996) and they did well to claim three UEFA Cup titles (1977, 1990, 1993). The Italian giants have won 32 Serie A trophies and it is known that a number of star players have been part of Juve in the past.
The likes of Alessandro Del Piero, Zinedine Zidane, Michel Platini, Lilian Thuram, Filippo Inzaghi, Pavel Nedved and David Trezeguet have all played for Juventus, while legendary goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon is yet to retire.
Juve lost two domestic trophies during the “Calciopoli” scandal, but despite being relegated to Serie B, the club quickly brought the glory days back to Turin. The Bianconeri used to play their home games at the Stadio delle Alpi, but now they welcome their rivals to Juventus Stadium.
The capacity of the stadium is 41,475. La Vechhia Signora (Old Lady) is another nickname of the club. Juve's biggest rivals are Torino and the two local rivals face each other in the Turin derby.
Our assessment is that Juventus can create chances to score more than once when they meet Zenit St Petersburg, who will face it for a goal of their own.
Therefore, we can see a pretty comfortable 2-0 margin for Juventus at full time.

Predicted Score Juventus vs Zenit: 2-0
