Zenit vs Lyon – Betting Tips: :
This is the match that can decide the 2nd place of the group, since Lyon only needs 1 point to ensure it. Meanwhile, Zenit have already shown they have ability to fight with the other teams of the group and the match in St. Petersburg at this time of the year has the aggravating aspect that it could have unfavourable conditions to play football, which might help the home side. Depay’s absence on Lyon’s side might make the team more predictable on the attack and decrease their scoring ability. As for Zenit, they are comfortable since they are playing at home and they need a victory here.
