Zenit Petersburg vs RB Leipzig PREVIEW & PREDICTION 15/03/2018


In the second hand of the Europa League, on Thursday, starting at 18:00, Zenit – Leipzig will be played. The match in the tour ended with the score of 1-2.

The new year is not at all favorable to the Russian band, which won a single victory in the five games played. Thus, Zenit achieved only 0-0 in the weekend away from FK Rostov. With no victory in the last three stages, all ended with the same score of 0-0, it now occupies only the fifth position. But nothing is lost for Mancini’s band, which is just two points away from the second place and a direct qualification in the Champions League. Zenit now hopes to return the fate of the qualifying as he did in the previous round when he eliminated Celtic after losing 0-1.

On the other side, the “bulls” also drew “white” on their way to Stuttgart. With just two points in the last four stages, Leipzig is moving away from a new qualification in the UCL. Moreover, Hoffenheim has come close to just two points and even the presence in the Europa League can be questioned.

Probable teams:

Zenit (4-4-2): Lunev – Smolnikov Ivanovic Mevlja Criscito – Rigoni Erokhin Paredes Kuzyaev – Zabolotny Kokorin

Leipzig (4-4-2): Gulacsi – Laimer Orban Upamecano Klostermann – Forsberg Demme Keita Bruma – Werner Augustin

In the tournament, Leipzig scored with a score of 2-1. All goals scored in the second half.

PREDICTION: Both teams to score / YES @ 1.65
