Zenit vs Fenerbahce Betting Tips

Zenit vs Fenerbahce – Europa League :After a 1st leg that took place in Istanbul
Where a penalty wasted by Robert Mak near the end of the 1st half stopped Zenit from getting the equalizer,
and with the Russians being down since the 21 minutes, they will now have to win to revert the disadvantage they bring from that 1st leg, where they’ve ended up losing by 1-0.
At a stage where the league is on a break in Russia, Zenit had a week to correct their mistakes in Turkey and prepare the attack to this 2nd leg in the best possible fashion, since the league only returns in the beginning of March.
Making one of the worst seasons of their recent history, Fenerbahçe sees on this Europa League the opportunity of trying to soften the impact of an awful campaign in the Turkish league,
where for now they are the first team outside of the relegation zone, having the same points as Ankaragucu, who are already on the danger zone.
The team travels to Saint Petersburg looking to defend the advantage conquered at home in the 1st leg with the goal from Islam Slimani, already after having drawn on the reception to Konyaspor (1-1) last Saturday, on a Turkish league match.
Zenit vs Fenerbahce – Betting Tip and Prediction: :
They didn’t manage to score a 2nd goal in Istanbul and I believe they will struggle to hold on to the advantage they’ve conquered in Russian soil.
Making an awful campaign domestically, Fenerbahce managed to get through the group stage of the Europa League, where in 3 matches away from home, they couldn’t do better than a point with the 2-2 draw away from home against Anderlecht, having lost against Dinamo Zagreb (1-4) and Spartak Trnava (0-1).
Normally, they are a super strong team at home in the European competitions and not only that, I see this Zenit having enough ability to at least discuss the qualification to the 8th finals of the Europa League: to win in the 90 minutes.
