Zenit Petersburg vs Anderlecht Betting Tip and Predictions. In the second leg of the 1/16 finals of the UEFA Europa League, Zenit Petersburg host Anderlecht at Stadion Petrovskiy. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Zenit Petersburg vs Anderlecht.
Zenit Petersburg lost the first match in the 1/16 finals of Europa League against Anderlecht 0-2, so they will try to revenge them upfront their supporters. The second part of the season in Russian Premier League haven’t started yet, so home side didn’t play many matches in the recent period, except few friendlies, so their form is questionable. Without any doubt, FK Zenit have very strong team, but we will see are they capable to go through. They played very good in the first leg, they had a ball possession and created many chances, but at the end they lost. In the winter transfer window, home team bought Chelsea’s defender Ivanovic who should help them in defence. Good news for Zenit is that they are playing very good at home, so I expect their attacks from the first minute.
Home side miss Kerzhakov and Ryazantsev, while Novoseltsev is doubtful. On the other side visitors have full squad available except Appiah and Kara are both doubtful.
Zenit Petersburg vs Anderlecht Predicted Lineups
Zenit Petersburg: Lodygin, Ivanovic, Neto, Criscito, Zhirkov, Garcia, Hernani, Kokorin, Giuliano, Shatov, Dzyuba.

Zenit Petersburg vs Anderlecht Prediction
Home side have no time to waste and they have to start to attack from the beginning, but on the other side they have to secure their net in order to keep the chance to go through. Visitors have good result and their main goal is to score. I expect interesting match between Zenit Petersburg vs Anderlecht and at least three goals.
