Football best betting tips for Zenit – Lazio
Russian champions Zenit will host Lazio in the beautiful city of Sankt-Peterburg in a match from Group F of the Champions League. We will take a good look at it in today’s football best betting tips. Let’s get to work!
For Zenit it’s a “now or never” kind of moment. The Russian club have not won any points from the first two matches, so now they are 4th in the group with no points to their record. Even if they can’t get one of the two first places in the group, they could always fight for the third place and an Europa League qualification. But they need more points in order to do it.
Last week Sergei Semak’s team tried its best against Borussia Dortmund at the Signal Iduna Park, but the match ended with a 2-0 win for the German team. Semak’s 4-5-1 formation didn’t work according to the plan. The striker Artem Dzyuba didn’t get enough support from Erokhin and Driussi, so it was easy for Dortmund’s defense to do their job.
Lazio are enjoying their return to the Champions League after years of absence. At this moment the Italians are leaders in the group with 4 points and a record of one win and one draw. Simone Inzaghi’s team is confidently marching on towards the knockout phase, but they still have work to do – it’s four rounds remaining in the group stage.
In the previous round of the group stage Lazio only made a 1-1 draw during the visit to Club Brugge. The Argentine forward Joaquin Correa opened the score for Lazio, but Vanaken equalised for the Belgians just minutes before the halftime break.
That’s our football best betting tips for the Champions League fixture between Zenit and Lazio in Group F. The Russians are desperate to win their first points for the season, but Lazio are in a good shape now.
