Europa League Leipzig – Zenit St. Petersburg
The Leipzig has surpassed the sixteenth of the finals eliminating a very quoted Naples, but risking to complicate life in the second leg after taking the San Paolo. And about complicating his life, Manitini’s Zenit went almost beyond, as he went on to lose on the Celtic side of Glasgow (Napoli’s decidedly less adversarial opponent) but then overturned the result on his return. This brief excerpt of the recent life of the two teams already gives the dimension of the unpredictability of these formations, capable of big business but also of clamorous slips.
The key points of the prediction Leipzig – Zenit St. Petersburg
For Lipsia in the sixteenth of the final victory for 1-3 at the San Paolo, but also the defeat in the return that put the qualification at risk (0-2).
Zenit did worse, losing in Scotland (1-0 in the first leg of the first leg), only to complete the comeback at home (3-0).
The Glasgow one, however, is the only away defeat of Zenit in this season of the Europa League, for the rest two wins and a tie for the Russians.
For another, the team of Mancini in the last round of the group stage went to storm the difficult field of Real Sociedad (1-3 the final).
Lipsia at home has been struggling lately: in the last Bundesliga round, he was blocked on a tie by Borussia Dortmund (1-1) and had previously lost against the Colony (1-2).
Prediction Leipzig – Zenit St. Petersburg
In general, however, the Germans are not going through a brilliant period (three losses and one in the last four). Lipsia is widely favored, but we believe that Zenit can give a hard time: we choose the draw for this first leg.
