Match : RB Leipzig vs Zenit

Competition : Europe League

Time / Date : 22:05h / 8 March 2018

Venue : Red Bull Arena

RB Leipzig

RB Leipzig are winless in three home matches – they haven’t gone four without a win since 2011,they have almost dropped out a massive 1-3 advantage from the first leg of their tie with Napoli in the previosu round. Maurizio Sarri surprisingly sent his strongest lineup on the pitch in the rematch at Red Bull Arena, but Partinopei were just one gtoal short of making it count at the end (0-2 win for Napoli).

Zenit

Zenit only recently returned from the winter break though. They outclassed Celtic back in St Petersburg to overturn their first leg deficit, beating the Scottish champions 3-0. However, their return to domestic action saw them play out a draw at home to Amkar, and they sit down in 5th position in the Russian Premier League.

Zenit have only won one of their last eight away matches, but have also only lost two in that span.
