Lazio – Zenit : Preview & Prediction
Lazio Rome, 2nd to 1 point behind Borussia Dortmund leader, has 1 point ahead of Club Bruges, 3rd, and 4 lengths over Zenit Saint-Petersburg … Suffice to say that a Roman success would eliminate the Russian club and would propel the Italian formation practically in 1 / 8th of final. Lazio Rome are unbeaten on the European scene, beating Borussia Dortmund at home (3-1) and gleaning 2 points in Bruges (1-1) and Russia (1-1). Lazio, unbeaten for 7 meetings, has just won this weekend in Crotone (2-0) and is thus getting closer to European places. Zénit Saint-Pétersbourg was hung on the field of Akhmat Grozny (2-2) this Saturday and misses a great opportunity to take 1st place in its championship. In this Champions League, the Zenit is very disappointing. After 2 defeats in a row against Club Brugge (1-2) and Dortmund (2-0), the Russian club was held in check at home against Lazio Rome (1-1) with a goal from the Transalpins at the end of match (82). At the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, the Zenit could experience a 7th trip to C1 without knowing victory.
Lazio Rome is still undefeated in this Champions League (1 win and 2 draws).
Zenit Saint Petersburg has still not obtained the slightest victory in C1 (1 draw and 2 defeats).
