Zenit vs Leipzig: On an Europa League filled with great names of European football
There might be two contenders to the final victory. The 1st leg match gave true signs of that expectation.
These are two teams that are very focused on finding the path to the goal, with the Germans managing to score out of two great level plays, with Bruma and Timo Werner being the goal scorers.
What certainly wasn’t on Leipzig’s plan was allowing a goal, already near the end, with Criscito scoring the goal for Zenit.
The 2-1 result ends up allowing Zenit St Petersburg the partial accomplishment of their objective.
The Russians now only need 1 goal to recover the disadvantage on this knockout tie and Roberto Mancini will certainly be more than aware of how they’ll do it, although against a side like Leipzig, they also have high chances of conceding goals.
The Russian league has returned on this month of March, with Zenit getting 2 draws, against Rostov and Amkar, dropping to a 5th place that doesn’t do justice to the potential of this roster.
Being 10 points away from 1st place, the ambition of winning the league title is practically gone, with the team still being able to qualify for the Champions League.
But this situation also feeds the idea of the team managing to do that through the Europa League.
Zenit vs Leipzig – Betting Tip and Prediction:
For RB Leipzig, they also have 2 draws on their last 2 Bundesliga’s matches, where they are winless for 4 matches, dropping to 6th place and maintaining the focus of getting on the Champions League’s train, that in Germany is formed by the top 4 spots.
At the same time, the club has always looked to Europe as an opportunity of affirmation and they are expected to be in full strength for this trip to Russia.
