Zenit – Dortmund : Preview & Prediction
The game is over in this group where Borussia Dortmund have already validated their ticket for the Round of 16 and where Zénith Saint-Péterbourg, red lantern, has nothing more to hope for! The Russian club, leader of its championship, completely missed its European course with only 1 point taken against Lazio Rome (1-1) at home. No doubt the Russians will want to sign their first and only victory in this C1 against the German club who won the first round (2-0). With its great success over Ural (5-1) this weekend, the Zenith will want to confirm. BVB 09 will be heavily handicapped for this trip to Russia with the absences of Haaland, Guerreiro and Meunier in particular. The current 3rd in the Bundesliga, defeated in Rome (3-1), could record his second poor performance away from home especially as Dortmund are in the hard with 1 defeat against FC Cologne (1-2) and 2 draws against Lazio Rome (1-1) in C1 and Frankfurt (1-1) this Saturday. A 4th match in a row for Lucien Favre’s proteges ?.
BVB 09 is already qualified.
Zenith Saint-Petersburg will seek to secure its first and last victory in C1.
The German club has several absences: Akanji, Delaney, Guerreiro, Haaland, Meunier, Reinier and Schmelzer.
Borussia Dortmund are on a series of 3 matches without success (2 draws and 1 loss).
The Zenith has just beaten Ural (5-1) this weekend.
For this last match which counts for butter, Borussia Dortmund could offer the first victory or the draw to the Russian club.
