The first leg of this game gathered so much buzz because of the attacking style of these teams. However, they both failed to really get going in the first leg until the second half when Leipzig raced to a 2-0 lead. Zenith fought back but they were only able to get a consolation goal and they now have some work to do to get a win while avoiding a goal from the Germans.
Zenith would prioritise the Europa League now as they have fallen to the fifth position in the Russian League after drawing against Rostov the last time out. They have a good home form anyway as they have won 11 of their last 16, with only 3 of those ending in a loss. They have won every single European game this season.
Leipzig have 3 losses, 2 draws and a win in their last 6 matches to leave themselves 6th in the Bundesliga table. They have also won only 3 of their last 11 away games so far, losing five and conceding 18 goals. They have been involved in over 2.5 goals scored in 7 of those 11 games.
