ZENIT VS CHELSEA PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
As a representative from Russia, it is clear that Zenit’s chance to continue in Group H of the Champions League is not very positive. Compared to Chelsea and even Juventus, this team is still too weak in terms of strength. Currently, Zenit only brings 4 points and ranks 3rd on the rankings. No longer a target for this tournament, it is clear that Sergei Semak’s attention will be directed to his entire team for the championship race in the domestic arena. Zenit is a team that is very fond of attacking play, if looking at their progress in the Russian league, it is not too strange for fast-paced matches with many goals. The mentality of not focusing on winning or losing is clearly also a premise for Zenit to dedicate a jubilant match.
In the remaining route, the Blues continued to fall in the London Derby at the weekend. The painful defeat with a score of 2-3 against West Ham also indirectly pushed Chelsea down to 3rd place in the Premier League table. Besides, this is also the second series of matches that coach Thomas Tuchel’s army could not win. However, Chelsea’s performance in the Champions League still brought a certain satisfaction to the fans, beating Juventus with a score of 4 – 0, The Blues stood at the door of heaven for the top spot after finishing the group stage. Winning in the next match is a necessary condition for them to achieve that, believing in a double attack to overwhelm the opponent from the team.
Chelsea is the team that stands at the top and is also the team that desperately needs 3 points in this match, so an attacking style can be set up by coach Thomas Tuchel in this match. While Zenit soon let loose and did not put too much emphasis on C1, the relaxed mentality and innocuous nature believed in an attractive score against the representative from England.
Select: Over 2.75 FT.
Zenit’s current form is not too good, they even disappoint at their own home ground. For the team to be last in the Russian league table, FK Rostov’s draw with a score of 2 – 2 is clear proof of that. According to the statistics of the last 10 receptions, Zenit only won 3, drew 3 and lost 4 matches at Krestovsky. Obviously, home team fans have the right to worry about this instability of the team.
On the Chelsea side, after a relatively explosive period and continuously occupying the top of the Premier League, the Blues are showing signs of being out of breath. But in general, the team’s recent failures are all unfortunate trends and personal mistakes. In a more general view, it is clear that Chelsea’s way of playing still wins the trust of the fans for this trip.
Select: Chelsea FT.
European odds highly appreciate Chelsea’s ability to win. Obviously, the defending champion is still too overwhelming compared to Zenit in terms of both strength and battle experience. It should be remembered that The Blues just defeated Juventus with a score of 4 – 0 in the last 5 C1 rounds. Besides, in the first leg, it was too difficult for Tuchel’s students to bring about a complete victory despite playing with a sub-team. In the context that this team needs a victory to stay at the top, the chance for Zenit to make a surprise is extremely slim.
