Zenit Petersburg – Bordeaux : Preview & Prediction
Zenit easily dominates the Russian championship and can focus fully on this Europa League where he could quickly get a qualification for the 1/16 finals if a win against the Girondins de Bordeaux on Thursday. The defeat on the turf of Dinamo Moscow (1-0) this Sunday does not call into question the domination of Zenit and its lead of 6 points on Krasnodar. Before this setback, the Semak formation remained on 2 wins against Slavia Prague (1-0) at home in this Europa League and ahead of Krasnodar (2-1) still at Zenit Stadium. The Russian club is ready to confirm its domination in his group against the Girondins de Bordeaux who fell to 8th place in the Ligue 1 after their defeat in Montpellier (2-0) this Sunday afternoon. The club scapular could not confirm his victory in the Atlantic derby against FC Nantes (3-0) registered on October 7 last. The “Navy and White” return to the European scene where they have hardly shone at the moment. The Bedouet-Ricardo formation followed two poor performances in the first two days on the pitch of Slavia Prague (1-0) and ahead of Copenhagen (1-2) at home. A new defeat in Russia would mean elimination for the Bordeaux group.
Girondins have conceded 2 losses in their last 3 matches.
Zénit has 2 hits in its last 3 outings.
Bordeaux are at the door of elimination after their 2 losses in the first 2 days in this Europa League.
Zenit is undefeated in the Europa League this season.
The Bordeaux record in C3 away is very low: 3 wins against 8 losses in 14 European trips.
Since April 10, 2008, the Zénit lost only one home win in the Europa League and has 25 wins and 3 draws in 29 receptions.
It is very difficult to take points at St. Petersburg Stadium! The Girondins de Bordeaux should suffer another defeat in this European competition!
