Villarreal vs Zenit (By: FantaCalcio)
Villarreal showed two completely opposite faces in La Liga and Europa League so far in the season.
They were struggling badly to pick up salvation points in domestic affairs all up until weekend’s super-important 0-2 victory over Levante away at Estadio Ciudad de Valencia. They scored 2 late goals in third and sixth minute of Extra time to claim a three-pointer which moved them outside of the red zone.
This will likely came as a consequence of a confidence-boosting Europa League success. Villarreal produced one of the best matches of the season seven days ago when they dispatched Zenit 1-3 I the road in the first leg of the last 16 round tie.
Zenith is first in the Russian league, they won this weekend against Orenburg and have now 5 points more than Krasnodar. So they are coming to this game with some confidence.
They weren’t really lucky in their first game against Villareal and will try to do their best to get something here.
Qualification will be really hard, but at least getting something here against a team who will be more focused on their next Liga game and who can qualify even losing this game.
I will even put a coin on a Zenit victory here.
