Our Prediction:

RB Leipzig will win

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

With neither side in great form, that sounds like a real possibility. Having home advantage puts Leipzig in the box seat for this one, and backing them to win at 4/6 with Genting looks like a decent option. 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.

Some confidence but not that much might be taken from the fact that until that game against Leverkusen, they were unbeaten in five trips to Germany. They lost the home fixture 2-1 and the away meeting 2-0, and their overall record against German sides in Europe in unimpressive (P16 W5 D3 L8). Zenit have played German clubs, most recently in 2014-15 when they were drawn in the same Champions League group as Bayer Leverkusen.

Werner himself was then the beneficiary of an excellent run and through-ball from Naby Keita, who Leipzig will surely miss next season when he moves to Liverpool. Werners finish, like Brumas, was impeccable. The first-leg tie last week was the first time these sides had ever met, and the first half passed off largely without incident. Things got a bit more interesting in the second half when Bruma, played in by Timo Werner, scored a fine goal to give the home side the advantage.

RB Leipzig Predicted Starting Line-up

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.

If they can get a lead here, they can feel confident of defending it. Having come alive to paste Celtic 3-0 at the Krestovskyi Stadium, Zenit have managed just one goal since then, a late Domenico Criscito finish in the first leg of this tie giving them at least an away goal and something to cling to in this tie. The positive news is that their defence has been strong, with no goals conceded in the three games played at home since their winter break ended.

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. 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. 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.
