Zenit St. Petersburg vs RB Leipzig Prediction & Match Preview

Zenit St. Petersburg vs RB Leipzig
Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 5 November 2019
Kick-off at 17:55 UK/ 18:55 CET
Venue: Gazprom Arena (Saint Petersburg).

Group G has opted a route for a competitive finish, and with top-performers from some of the major leagues in Europe, it certainly is apt. Leipzig is at the top of the table as of now, with six points, but the loss they suffered at home against Lyon could really come back later to haunt them.

This match-day, they would hope for the Lyon-Benfica game to end in a draw, while they themselves script a victory against the Russians. This would carve a safe spot for the Germans in terms of qualification, but the fact they are on the road against Zenit, who have been on ominous form at the Gazprom Arena, could prove to be their undoing.

  • These two have locked horns thrice so far in this decade, all of which had come since 2018. Interestingly, the Red Bulls hold a 100% unbeaten record in these games.

  • Both teams have found the back of the net in all of these fixtures.

Zenit St. Petersburg vs RB Leipzig Prediction

First and foremost, take into account the fact that Leipzig is part of the Bundesliga, which is miles superior in quality to the Russian Premier League. Moreover, these two had locked horns in the last season, in the Europa League. Then, the Red Bulls had progressed to the next round, with an aggregate winning scorecard of 3-2.

Also, take into account the win the Germans had delivered in the reverse leg of this game. In addition, just the last match-day, Leipzig delivered a massive triumph on the road against tough customer, Wolfsburg. The battle had ended in a 6-1 scoreline.

Bringing these observations under the microscope, the chances for Julien Nagelsmann’s men to lose look bleak.

Still, consider that is a home game for Zenit. On top of that, they are on a six-fixture winning run at this ground and have found the back of the net an astonishing 23 times in the process. Furthermore, every single meeting between these two opponents has seen goals at either end of the pitch as well.

Consequentially, the BTTS wager looks extremely promising this Tuesday.
