The first match on Tuesday’s Champions League evening will take place in Petersburg, where Zenit will host Austria Vienna. Both teams have started with lost in the first round in group G, Zenit lost 3-1 in Madrid from superb Aletico, while Porto beat Austria in Vienna 0-1.
I’ve already wrote about Austria before their first match in Champions League this season against Porto. Austria qualified luckily in the elite football league and it’s hard to believe that they could finish above 4th position in group G. Atletico and Porto are favorite to go through in the next phase, but Zenit isn’t without chance. This is a “must win” match for home side if they still want to think to qualify in the next phase.
Zenit have started very good in their national championship and standing at the top of the table. They’re in great form with 5 wins in a row. In the last three matches they have scored 4 goals per match. They especially play good at home where they have 6 consecutive wins in which they scored 20 goals. On 5 of those 6 matches were at least 3 goals.
No missing players at home side, while Austria misses out an important midfielder Marko Stankovic.
Huge difference between these two sides. Zenit is absolute favorite in this match and I expect their win here, but the first betting option is betting on goals, at least three.
Zenit Petersburg – Austria Vienna Betting Tip: over 2.5 goals @ 1.6
