Match Preview & Team News
Leipzig are looking to return to winning ways after a four-game winless streak across competitions as they welcome Group G leaders Zenit to Red Bull Arena on Wednesday evening. The hosts are set as heavy favourites by the bookies, but there is little to back them up here, following a dismal spell of form in the last month.
The Bulls ruined the initial victory at Benfica (1-2) with a surprising home defeat at the hands of Lyon last time out. The loss to the French outfit came just days after a 1-3 loss to Schalke 04 in Bundesliga. These were failures Julian Nagelsmann’s troops have never managed to recover from as the team went on to play successive 1-1 draws to Bayer Leverkusen and Wolfsburg in the domestic league.
Russian champions will enter the match in much higher spirits. They won five of the last six Premier League matches bagging as many as nine goals in the last two victories in the process. Six of these nine goals came in Saturday’s 6-1 hammering of Rostov in St. Petersburg. Artem Dzyuba was the standout performer on the day as scored three and set up two of his side’s six goals on the occasion. The Russian forward is enjoying a phenomenal spell of form as he is the Premier League’s top assister with eight deliveries to goals so far in the season. The striker added eight goals to the impressive tally and he will be the one to look after here, especially if we know that the Bulls failed to keep a clean sheet in the last four games in all competitions.
Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction
The value is with the visitors who are 5/4 to avoid a defeat in Germany. Zenit won seven of the last nine matches across competitions and they are still unbeaten in the Champions League.

Artem Dzyuba to score anytime is our alternate pick at the 7/4 odds. He bagged a hat-trick in the weekend’s domestic win over Rostov.
