Zenit St. Petersburg vs Slavia Prague-Preview

 

  • Zenit St Petersburg have never lost a Europa League (EL) home game (W17, D2), an astonishing record that’s expected to continue here.
  • Competing in their third-successive EL group stage. The Russians just need to avoid defeat here to equal the EL record for the most consecutive home fixtures unbeaten.
  • Sitting first in the Russian Premier League (RPL) and currently ten home games unbeaten in all competitions (W8, D2). Zenit have been scoring at will in recent home games, netting at least three goals in four of their last five home fixtures – two of which were EL qualifying matches.
  • Against the Russian juggernaut, Slavia have a tough task and especially as they have won just one of their last 22 European fixtures on the road (W1, D10, L11). However Jindřich Trpišovský’s side can take some confidence from their tendency to grab a goal away from home, with Slavia failing to score in just two of their last 12 away fixtures (in all competitions).
  • The Prague outfit currently top Group C, after an impressive 1-0 home win over Bordeaux in their EL opener – albeit that result was just their third victory in 13 EL group stage games (W3, D5, L5).
  • Players to watch:

                    Aleksandr Erokhin has bagged four goals and three assists for Zenit in the league. Meanwhile, midfielder Jaromír Zmrhal got the winner against Bordeaux in Slavia’s EL opener.

  • Stat attack:

Zenit have not been drawing at half-time in any of their last five European games.

  • There’s been at least one first-half goal in eight of Slavia’s last nine European fixtures.
  • Zenit have won on matchday two in all three of their previous EL group stage campaigns.
  • Both teams have scored in four of Zenit’s last five EL home games.
