Bordeaux vs Zenit St. Petersburg Prediction

Zenit won the sole match between these teams, with a scoreline of 2-1. The tie was conducted just two weeks back, and it was in this same competition.

Zenit is unbeaten in the tournament so far. While Bordeaux is winless in their three matches. As the toppers of the group are being hosted by the team at the bottom-most strata, the favorites tag go for the visitors with no doubt.

Expect Zenit St. Petersburg to grab at least a point and get a step closer to the knockouts. Expect both teams to score considering the pressure under which they are playing, and also taking into account the home ground advantage for the weaker team.
