Zenit vs Dortmund – UEFA Champions League Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Match Prediction.

 

 

The UEFA Champions League returns this week when Zenit vs. Borussia Dortmund kicks-off at 18:55 (GMT+1) on Tuesday the 8th of December as Matchday 6 gets underway at the Krestovsky Stadium.

 

 

 

Zenith St. Petersburg defeated Ural, 5-1 in their Russian Premier League home encounter which took place on Saturday - picking up their second victory in six games across all competitions: WDLLDW. Their last match in the UEFA Champions League ended in a 3-0 defeat to Clug Bruges a defeat which sealed their fate in the penultimate match of the group stages. Zenit are 4th in Group F with only 1 point and a victory or defeat to Dortmund on Tuesday will have no impact on their chances to qualify for the next round. With a goal difference of -8 after 0W, 1D & 4L, coach Sergie Semak has nothing to play for but to save face with the hope of winning at least one match before exiting the competition. He will likely field a 4—2—3—1 formation with Dzyuba leading that attack when Zenit takes on Borussia Dortmund for the second time in this season's UEFA Champions League.

 

 

 

Dortmund will be coming behind two consecutive draws. They earned a 1-1 draw on Saturday against Frankfurt just days after picking up another 1-1 draw against Italian side, Lazio on UEFA Champions League Matchday 5. Their current form reads: LWWLDD. Dortmund sits at the top of Group F and have already sealed a place into the next round of the competition irrespective of the outcome of this game. They have a healthy goal difference of +6 after scoring 10 times and conceding 4 goals from 3W, 1D & 1L. Lucien Favre’s 3—4—3 formation will see Brandt replace Erling Haaland who picked up a torn muscle fibre injury at the center of attack. Jadon Sancho and Thorgan Hazard will be on the flanks when this tie gets underway. Haaland is tipped to return on the 28th of December, meanwhile Thomas Meunier is ruled out of this fixture due to muscle injury along with Reinier who tested positive for coronavirus.

 

 

 

Dortmund defeated Zenith St. Petersburg, 2-0 on Matchday 2. In March 2014, Zenit St. Petersburg defeated Dortmund, 2-1. On the 25th of February, a match between these two sides ended in a 4-2 win for Dortmund.
