Zenit Prediction – Can Zenit return favour against RB Leipzig?

After being handed a 2-1 defeat away at tonight’s opponents, RB Leipzig, on Matchday 3, Rusian side Zenit have a chance to return the favour when they play host to their German counterparts on Matchday 4 at their Saint-Petersburg Stadium.

Zenit have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 7 matches overall in all competitions which was that Champions League tie away at Leipzig, but a recent wins against Benfica (Champions League), along with Russian Premier League victories against Ural, Rostov and Krylya Sovetov should still see a confident Zenit outfit in Tuesday night’s clash.

The top two clubs in Group G face off here tonight though, and with Zenit sitting in 2nd place and 2 points behind RB Leipzig (and with Lyon level on 4 points with themselves), Zenit will be keen to get a result here tonight, and indeed, the hosts could go top of the group with a win here.

It’s been a mixed start to Zenit’s campaign though as they’ve drawn with Lyon, beat Benfica but lost to RB Leipzig, so perhaps the goals markets is best here; indeed, 5 of Zenit’s last 7 Champions League ties at home have seen both teams score.


Zenit vs RB Leipzig Over 2.5 goals

RB Leipzig Prediction – Can RB Leipzig retain top spot?

With a slender 2 point margin at the top of Group G, RB Leipzig know they can’t afford a defeat in Russia on Tuesday night with both Zenit and French club, Lyon, both breathing down their necks and Benfica just 1 point behind those two.

RB Leipzig are in pretty good nick at the moment though as the visitors have lost just 1 out of their last 6 matches overall in all competitions, which was a 2-1 defeat away at Freiburg in the Bundesliga, but their important Matchday 3 win over tonight’s opponents, Zenit, along with Saturday’s crushing 8-0 demolition of Mainz in the Bundesliga should also see a confident Leipzig outfit in this clash in Russia.

Turning to Champions League form and RB Leipzig have produced mixed results in recent times as they’ve won and lost in alternate fashion in their last 7 ties overall, so perhaps the straight win market should be avoided, but the goals market looks promising.

6 of RB Leipzig’s last 7 Champions League ties have seen both teams score, and this trend looks set to continue at Zenit with both teams pressing for all three points here, in addition to forward Werner (9 goals) and his threat up front.
