Fenerbahce vs Zenit – Europa League :Making one of their worst campaigns of the last couple of years
Fenerbahçe managed to advance from the Europa League’s group stage, finishing in 2nd place of Group D, behind Dinamo Zagreb and ahead of Anderlecht and Spartak Trnava.
The Turkish side managed to get 8 points in 6 rounds, which ended up being enough for them to advance, taking into consideration the dominance of the Croatians in the group and the weak displays from the Belgians and Slovaks.
On the Turkish Super League, Fenerbahçe has been a true disaster, with the team sitting in 14th place of the league table after 21 rounds, with only 23 points conquered and a 3-points advantage to Ankaragücü, with that team still having one less match played. On the past Friday, Fenerbahce lost away from home by 1-0 with Kayserispor.
Zenit has been making a good season, winning the Group C of the Europa League’s group stage with 11 points conquered in 6 rounds, finishing with a better record than Slavia Prague, Bordeaux and Copenhagen.
At the moment, the Russian League is on a break, only returning at the beginning of the next month, and to maintain good physical levels, Zenit has been playing a lot of friendlies, already having played 6 matches since January 22nd, getting 3 victories, 1 draw and 2 losses.
The last one was against Sarpsborg, on a match where Zenit won by 2-1. In the league, the team is in the lead with 34 points, 1 more point than Krasnodar.
Fenerbahce vs Zenit – Betting Tip and Prediction: :
Despite considering that Zenit is favourite on the tie, in this 1st leg, Fenerbahce will have a word to say.
Playing in Istanbul with the opportunity of going to Russia with an advantage, I believe that the Turks will put aside their poor domestic performance this season and get a good result, against a Zenit that hasn’t been having official competitive rhythm for several weeks and that also doesn’t win very often when they play
away from home in Europe.
Besides that, Fenerbahce, on this Europa League, has the opportunity to shine, to try and make their fans forget, in a certain way, the disgrace that has been their domestic campaign in Turkey, which means they should be more motivated than Zenit for this 1st leg.
