Huge difference in quality between these two teams. Team from St. Petersburg is absolute favorite in the next two matches against FC Nordsjælland and if Zenit don’t qualify in the next round of Champions League qualifications, it would be a big surprise. Zenit is much stronger side, they have more quality players, they have more money (these days there are some rumors that they offer 70 millions euros for 2 Dortmund’s players – Lewandowski and Subotic).
FC Nordsjælland play very poor. In the last 4 matches (two friendly and two liga matches) they lost three times and had one draw, conceding 13 goals.
Both teams have problems with injured and suspended players.
FC Nordsjælland miss Sise, Petry, Hansen, Christensen and Lorentzen, while Zenit will play without Anyukov, Shirokov, Malafeev, Bukharov and Criscito, but visitors have more “longer and better bench” with quality players such as Danny, Kerzhakov, Tymoshchuk, Fayzulin, Witsel etc., so we believe they could finish the job in the first leg.
FC Nordsjælland – Zenit St Petersburg Betting Tip: 2 @ 1.55
