Zenit vs RB Leipzig Match Preview

Zenit have been in good form lately but still saw a 2-1 Champions League loss after taking an early lead in Leipzig back in October, as the German rivals topped the Group G table and now sit two points in the clear ahead of their Tuesday’s clash. They now hope to show more and snatch the top spot once again.

Lvi have already bounced and we’ve seen them beat Krylya Sovetov (0-2 in Russian Premier League) and Tom Tomsk (4-0 in Cup), heading into their tough clash against CSKA in great spirits. They’ve been very tough to beat at this ground and Sergei Semak rightfully hopes for more of the same here.

RB Leipzig have seen a more unpredictable spell of form lately and this has seen them dropping behind the top of the table in Bundesliga. While this was very obvious on the road, they outclassed Wolfsburg (1-6) in DFB Pokal on Wednesday as Sabitzer, Forsberg, Laimer, and Werner (x2) all found the net and this will be a great boost to their confidence.

Die Bullen see their busy schedule continue and fatigue could be catching up with them as well, but Julian Nagelsmann should have no trouble keeping their head in the game. A point here would keep them in the top 2 and we feel the visitors have what it takes to get it at this point.

We will thus stick our necks out for another narrow head-to-head contest at Saint-Petersburg Stadium, going for a Draw at 5/2 with William Hill and hoping to see an exciting clash end with shared spoils on Tuesday.

We’ve seen both sides scoring many goals lately and with that in mind, we should be in for goals once again. Leipzig will thus have to employ an attacking approach we feel and we’ll now stick with a Yes on Both teams to score too, which comes at 8/15 with bet365.
