RB Leipzig – Zenit Petersburg UEFA Europa League
RB Leipzig occupies the 6th position of the Bundesliga, with 39 points accumulated in 25 championship games. German Timo Werner is the team’s top scorer in the championship, and has managed to score 10 times so far. The hosts are in a very weak form, with only one point in the last 3 games of the championship, after the home draw with Dortmund (score 1-1). They also won only one of the last 5 official games played on their own ground. In the previous round, the Germans were able to qualify at the expense of Naples. The hosts can not rely on the injured Marcel Halstenberg in this duel.
Gulacsi – Kolstermann, Upamecano, Orban, Laimer – Forsberg, Keita, Kampl, Sabitzer – Poulsen, Werner
On the other side, Zenit Petersburg is ranked fourth in the rankings of the first Russian leagues, the team managing to gather 38 points after 21 stages. Russian Kokorin is the best scorer of the team in the championship, with the 10 goals scored so far. The guests just started the competitive season in Russia, drawing home on the weekend, 0-0 in front of the Amkar. In the sixteenth final of the Europa League final, Zenit won a qualification in front of the Celtic, which he defeated in the 3-0 draw. Leandro Paredes is the main absentee of the guests for this move, being suspended.

RB Leipzig – Zenit Petersburg Prediction
Both teams have serious problems in the championship, currently out of the UEFA Champions League. So the Europa League trophy is an important target for the two teams, providing them money and a qualification at the “mass of the rich.” I expect both bands to force the offensive to try to secure their qualifying yet, so my recommendations for this time are based solely on goals, which I hope will be as many as possible.
