Tournament: UEFA Europa League
Location: Stadion Krestovskyi
Match date: 15.03.2018 at 18:00

On March 15 2018 at 18:00 at the Stadion Krestovskyi in Sankt-Petersburg in the upcoming match of the Round of 16 of the UEFA Europa League the local Zenit will play against Leipzig. In the first leg game the Germans won 2:1.

Zenit have a wonderful squad now and yet they aren’t very impressive in the national championship. Still they will definitely be fighting in the Europa League. They won their group where they played against Real Sociedad, Rosenborg and Vardar with 16 points gained in their 6 matches played. Zenit were really strong in attack and scored 17 goals in the end. The defense was also great as they only missed 5 goals. In the previous home games Zenit drew Amkar 0:0 and outplayed Celtic 3:0 and Ural 2:1.

As for Leipzig, they impressed everyone in the previous season and took the second place in the German Bundesliga in their first season after the promotion to the national elite division. The Bulls failed in the Champions League as they took the third place in their group where they played against Monaco, Besiktas and Porto. The attack of the teams was comparatively strong as they scored 10 goals while the defense was a mess as they missed 11 goals. In the previous away matches Leipzig drew Stuttgart 0:0, outplayed Napoli 3:1 and lost to Eintracht Frankfurt 1:2.

Leipzig managed to outplay Zenit 2:1 in the first leg game of the current stage of the Europa League. Zenit are much stronger and more stable in the home games while the Germans aren’t very reliable playing away from home. That’s why it seems to us that the hosts will be able to avoid a loss in the forthcoming match.
