Leipzig has started to fly nowadays: 6-1 against Wolfsburg in the DFB-Pokal, and 8-0 against Mainz in the Bundesliga. Their play is overattacking with all time pressing. Now Willi Orban is injured in the squad, so the best defender of the team is out. Now the partner of Dayot Upamecano has been Nordi Mukiele, who played as subtitute defender earlier. But in the Champion League Mukiele was starter central-defender against Zenit and Benfica too. He has no huge experience, so I think he will make some stupid mistake, and furthermore, at the end of october he had a little calf-injury.
Zenit need to attack for the win if they want to promoting to the best 16 teams. At Leipzig they could score once, but had some other promising oppurtunities (For example: Yordan Osorio’s big chance). IMO they will also have some good possibility at St. Peterburg.
I wait that Zenit will act attackingly, they should win and gain the three point. It could be manifesting in goals on both sides and resulting more than 2 goals.
