Zenit vs Monaco by Marlo
The midweek game in mind against Monaco played a role in the nil all draw at the weekend. However, they did manage to maintain their unbeaten start to the league.
On the other hand, Monaco were busy suffering a home defeat in their domestic weekend clash, taking their tally to a grim looking 4 losses this season from 8 games. Not long ago they were seen as title contenders, however, having lost half of their games for the new season and collected a meagre 10 points from 8 games it puts them in an ominous situation for the rest of the season.
However, they did pull off a fantastic result by keeping a free scoring Leverkusen out in the first round. Leverkusen did have their chances and in truth should have taken at least a point, if not all 3. However, they didn't, onwards and upwards.
We are being offered a very good price on Zenit here, a price I am not prepared to refuse.
Monaco simply have to be opposed until they string together some consistency and Russia is a very difficult place to play football.
Zenit will be keen to impress here to boast their points tally and goal difference.
Villas Boas is settling into his role and results are beginning to materialise.
