Zenit Petersburg – RB Leipzig : Preview & Prediction
Defeated 2 goals to 1 in the first leg in Germany, Zenit St. Petersburg can legitimately believe in his chances of qualifying for the quarter-finals of the Europa League. The Russian side, fifth in their league, shared the points on Rostov’s field (0-0) recently but was probably in the 1/8 round of the second leg. Roberto Mancini’s protégés are formidable this season on the European stage at home, beating Real Sociedad (3-1), Rosenborg (3-1) and Celtic Glasgow (3-0). Leipzig, currently sixth in the Bundesliga, has been warned … Despite a series of 3 games without defeat (1 win and 2 draws), all competitions, the German club, held in check in Stuttgart (0-0) on weekends last, could sink in Russia. Leipzig has already lost in the warm atmosphere of Besiktas (2-0) and on the pitch of FC Porto (3-1) especially during his short epic in the Champions League.
Crisciton, reducing the mark late in the game (86th) in the first leg (2-1 for Leipzig), maintains the hope of a qualification for the Zenith.
Since 2008, the Zenit SPb has lost only once on his law in the Europa League.
Zenit Petersburg has won its last 5 European home games.
RB Leipzig this season is 2 wins and 2 losses in C1 / C3 away.
The European experience will be on the side of the Russians who could overthrow a German team that discovers Europe only this season.
With 22 victories over its last 25 European home games, the Zenith is supreme in its Krestovskyi stadion, an almost impregnable fortress! It would be wise to play the “no defeat” of the Russian club on his soil.
