As someone playing with the two, for now I believe this match is balanced in S2. The can moving slower (which people are wrongly taking as a buff) gives more time to Zangief counter any of the approaches, using the new improved lariat, parry, air counter, or even trying a weak pile drive through the can. The banana is still a problem, but at least doesn't let Birdie advance to your side. Also, everything he does had some damage reduction, while Zangief still hits hard.
