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

The 3-0 win over Celtic needs to be set against the fact that Celtic pretty much always lose away in Europe. Zenits other results since returning from hiatus havent been impressive. Zenit are the side here with European pedigree they won this competition in 2008, in fact but at least on their visit to Leipzig they will start as underdogs.

In the last round, they overcame Celtic after a poor first leg due to a great effort in the second to win 3-1 on aggregate. RB Leipzig come into this match having dropped out of the Champions League. In the last round, they upset Napoli over two legs by clinging on at home after a loss in that second leg. They won two ties just to book their place in the group, and from there they went on to advance out of a fairly tough group that included Real Sociedad, Rosenborg, and Vardar in it. This is the first year of any European involvement for them after finishing second in the Bundesliga last season, and they did fairly well in a UCL group with Besiktas, FC Porto, and a disappointing Monaco team to move on. Unlike many years recently, Zenit did not begin their European excursions in the Champions League. Instead, they have been in this competition for the entirety of the season.

Correct Score Prediction: Zenit 2-2 RB Leipzig

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.

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.

Zenit St Petersburg

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.

With a tough away match in Russia to come, Leipzig don't have a lot of wiggle room if they have aspirations of moving on. They will need a solid, composed, display from central midfield talisman Naby Keita to move on here. The Guinea man has been a little erratic with his discipline this season, picking up several red cards. However, he is one of the most talented players in an overall sense in this tournament and picked up an assist in the first leg to help drive them to victory.

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.

Highlighted Player (Willi Orban):

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.

The Russians reversed a deficit in the last round, but their opposition have shown themselves to be quite the threat away from home. Expert Verdict: As far as two-legged knockout ties go, this match is very finely poised. Leipzig got the win they would have wanted, and Zenit got the away goal that will give them a lot of momentum for this second leg at home. Both teams will be fairly happy with the result of the first leg.
