Zenit
VS
Gent
Zenit entertain Gent in cold mother Russia tonight aiming to make it 2 wins from 2 after thrashing Valencia at home. After the 3-2 win against Valencia, they have struggled in domestic competition drawing twice in the league and needing extra time in the Cup to go through. One could say their mind was solely focussed in making it to the next round of the competition, having won the Russian League last year. The Russians will be counting on home conditions in cold Russia, where teams generally tend to struggle when they travel there. Additionally, the Russian side boast a talented group of players including Hulk, Shatov, Danny, Witsel, Garcia, Garay, Lombaerts, Criscito among the few who will be looking to take the game to the oppositions.

 

Gent are travelling away where they have struggled in European competition, losing all 3 group stage games in the Europa League in 2010/11. While they have come out of that game in good form, travelling away to Russia has not been easy for any Belgian teams who have lost all 5 matches played against Zenit in the past. Gent were lucky to grab only a draw after being brought down to 9 men, and will not feel it confident with Dejaegere and Foket; both their right side players missing, which will give an opportunity for them to be exploited by Hulk when he switches over to that flank.

 

The Russian side come into this game full of confidence and definitely backing them on the asian handicap is decent value.

I'd like to add the fact that Zenit's 1st choice goalkeeper Yuri Lodygin will be out tonight due to poor performance in the last 2 games in Russian league, so their 2nd goalkeeper Michael Kerzhakov will step in.

So, BTTS maybe?
