RB Leipzig – Zenit St Petersburg Match Prediction | 23-10-2019 12:55

Zenit may have brushed past Celtic in the last round of the Europa League, but theyve found momentum hard to come by elsewhere. That doesnt change the fact that it seems to take teams a while to find their feet after the break. The reasons for Russias gargantuan winter break are obvious its a big country with a lot of snow.

The Russian side do not want to stop now and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the Red Bulls when the two teams face each other at Red Bull Arena in the first leg of the Europa League last 16. The Zenitchiki are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but their performances on the road leave a lot to be desire, meaning that they should be happy with share of spoils against the Bundesliga side. Zenit did well to overtake a one-goal deficit in the tie against Celtic, with the team rolling over the Scottish Champions 3-0 in front of home fans. Zenit suffered a 1-0 loss to Celtic in Glasgow in their last away game in the Europa League and that is yet another reason why home win should be considered. Leipzig, on the other hand, eliminated Napoli in the double-header, meaning that they are definitely capable of beating the Russian outfit in front of home fans.

The return leg, in a weeks time, may well be a different matter. The fact that Leipzig are the hosts here puts them in the position of strength but if their opponents score first, that changes in a hurry. Nonetheless, in this leg of the tie anyway, our RB Leipzig vs Zenit St Petersburg prediction is a Leipzig win, probably by a single goal. That said, Leipzig havent been pulling up trees recently either, so this match is really a case of two clubs looking to find some elusive form.

That away goal took a comfortable 2-0 win for the home side and turned it into the narrowest of margins with a crucial away goal scored into the bargain. The fly in the ointment for the German side came with five minutes to go, Criscito stepping up to float a free-kick past Leipzig keeper Peter Gulacsi. Given how Zenit turned things around in St Petersburg after a narrow defeat at Celtic, theres reason for Leipzig to be concerned.

Zenit did well to overtake a one-goal deficit in the tie against Celtic, with the team rolling over the Scottish Champions 3-0 in front of home fans.

Zenit play host to Leipzig at their Stadion Krestovskyi in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Thursdays program in the Europa League. The Zenitchiki are a real force to be reckoned with at home and it has to be noted that they are eyeing their sixth consecutive win at home in the Europa League. The two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment, but we predict that the hosts will emerge triumphant in the return leg as they have turned their Stadion Krestovkyi into a real fortress. The Russian side scored a vital away goal in a 2-1 loss to Leipzig at Red Bull Arena, but they need to beat the Bundesliga side in Sankt Petersburg if they are to make it to the quarter-finals. Leipzig did well to eliminate Napoli in the last 32, but you should bear in mind that the Neapolitans rested several first-team regulars in the two-legged tie against the Serie A club.

As this is Leipzigs debut European season the club was founded in 2009 by a soft-drinks giant and has worked its way up from the fifth tier of German football this is unsurprisingly their first meeting with Zenit. Its their first meeting with any Russian side, in fact, so all we have to go on is their European record from this season, which is patchy entering the Europa League after finishing third in their Champions League group, then knocking Napoli out to get here.

The away goal in Leipzig could make all the difference here it means the visitors cant afford any slip-up, and their relative inexperience at this level makes that even more of a worry for their fans. Its a close one to call, but were plumping for Zenit to do enough to get through. Thats how finely-balanced this one is there is no consensus even among bookmakers as to who has the best chance of going through.
