The 27th season of the Russian football tournament is coming to an end soon. The two finalists will be figured out in April, while the winner of the competition will be specified on May 13. Bet on Russian Cup 2020 final and two semi-finals as the further champion seems to be obvious.
As most of the 2019/20 Russian Cup has already passed, it’s time to bet on the most possible winner. We already know three out of 4 semi-finalists, so let’s turn to online sportsbooks in Russia to figure out the last one.
According to the predictions, the following football clubs will compete for the right to be qualified for the final on April 22.
- Zenit St. Petersburg (reached semi-final) vs Spartak Moscow (reached semi-final)
- Khimki (reached semi-final) vs Ural (the most possible semi-final member)
So, who has the most chances to win the Russian Cup?
Bet on Russian Cup 2020 to be won by Ural Yekaterinburg
Ural Yekaterinburg is one of the strongest football clubs in Russia nowadays. Hiring Dmytro Parfenov as a head coach in 2018 definitely brought benefits to Bumblebees, who are among favorites for the Russian Cup so far. The club reached the final twice, in 2017 and 2019, but lost to Lokomotiv Moscow in both matches.
This season, Lokomotiv was out of competition in 1/32, so Ural is considered as a possible favorite instead of the reigning champions. According to 1xBet Sportsbook, Ural has third-highest chances to win the Russian Cup from the third attempt. The FC from Yekaterinburg hasn’t even reached the semi-final yet but remained one of the favorites of the whole tournament. It has 6.80 odds on its victory in the final competition and 1.96 odds to outplay its rival, Shinnik Yaroslavl, in a battle for the last slot in the semi-final. Two football clubs will play against each other on March 18, so hurry up to bet on the strongest one.
Football clubs from Moscow & region are among favorites too
Two clubs from the Moscow region will compete in semi-finals this year. One of them is Spartak, the best Russian FC by statistics. The club tops the list of the most successful ones in Russia with 37 total victories, but only 14 of them were reached since the fall of the USSR. However, it doesn’t prevent Spartak from being a runner-up in the 2020 Russian Cup race. The club has 4.40 odds to win the trophy, which is pretty close to the leader.
Another FC from the Moscow region is Khimki. The club from the same-name city already reached the semi-final but has the fourth-highest chances to move on (7.50). However, football is an unpredictable thing, so this underdog may easily turn into a favorite. So, you may bet on Russian Cup 2020 to be won by Khimki.
Zenit is the leader of the 2020 Russian Cup race
All in all, online gambling sites in Russia give preference to Zenit aka the next winner of the Russian Cup. This FC from St. Petersburg enters the top-4 most successful clubs in the country, following 3 rivals from Moscow: Dynamo, CSKA, and Spartak. However, Zenit has all the chances to leave them behind this year. The odds on its victory in the major Russian football competition are 1.81, so a win-win situation is to bet on Russian Cup 2020 to be won by Zenit.
During the 2019/20 season, Zenit showed one of the best results in all football leagues. It reached the RC semi-final with impressive victories like 4:0 against Tom Tomsk. The club also leads the Russian Premier League standings with 47 points (its closest rival has 41). If players from the Northern capital take both trophies, it will be one of the most memorable moments in Russian football.
