Our Prediction:

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

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.

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. 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. 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.

They certainly looked ring-rusty at Celtic Park in their first game back, and were fortunate to come away from Glasgow with just a one-goal deficit in the Round of 32. This will be just Zenits fourth competitive game since the 11th of December, when the Russian league went on a three-month winter hiatus. They then easily beat Celtic in the second leg a 3-0 win in which Celtic could count themselves fortunate the margin was so narrow.

Highlighted Team (RB Leipzig):

With neither side in great form, that sounds like a real possibility. Having home advantage puts Leipzig in the box seat for this one, and backing them to win at 4/6 with Genting looks like a decent option. Perhaps the RB Leipzig vs Zenit St Petersburg best odds on the night, though, are the 31/4 offered by ComeOn that the home side will win a tight contest 2-1. Their French striker Kevin-Jean Augustin has scored in their last three league matches, and his odds of 4-1 to be the first scorer here, from 888Sport, are well worth looking into.

Leipzig could well get what they need if you can go to Napoli and win 3-1 youre at least a decent team but our betting.org Zenit St Petersburg vs RB Leipzig prediction is for the Russian side to win and go through to the quarter-finals. That mix of home advantage, away goal and European experience just edges them over the line, in our estimation.

RB Leipzig vs Zenit St Petersburg match previews will pay close attention to Zenits slowness in getting back to match fitness and form. In a game most notable for featuring three red cards two for Zenit the sides played out a 0-0 draw. A bunch of warm-weather friendlies in Dubai and Turkey aside, Zenits only other game in 2018 was last weekends return to league action against relegation strugglers Amkar Perm. Not the best way to prepare for a visit to a Bundesliga-level opponent, for sure.

In the last round, they knocked out Napoli thanks to a hugely impressive 3-1 win in the away leg though alarm bells will have rung at the fact that the home leg was then lost 2-0, meaning RB only progressed on the away goals rule. Their showing here has been better than their recent domestic form. Zenit St Petersburg vs RB Leipzig match previews will note that neither side is in excellent form right now.

Domenico Criscito might have been the man that grabbed the late goal for Zenit last week to give them a much better chance of progressing from the tie, but it's another full back that should be watched closely. In addition to that, he's a great defender and a player you can count on to perform. That man is Branislav Ivanovic. He scored a massive goal for them against Celtic in the last round at home, and he has been known to score crucial goals in Europe down the years.

Over the years Branislav Ivanovic has established himself as one of the best defenders in the world football. Bane plays as a centre back, but he is capable of playing as a full back as well. The Serbian defender has been playing for Chelsea since 2008 and he used to play for the likes of Srem, OFK Beograd and Lokomotiv Moscow in the past as well.
