RB Leipzig hosts Zenit in round 3 of the Champions League group stage. The match will be played on Wednesday, October 23rd at Red Bull Arena (Leipzig)
Leipzig has noticeably slowed down recently. The Bulls haven’t won for the last 4 matches in a row, including the last one in the Champions League. They lost to Lyon at home and even failed to score a goal in response. Leipzig beat Benfica in the first game in the group in Portugal (1-2). But Leipzig was on the move then, and now the team got hooked. Leipzig is strong in its teamwork. The club has no pronounced stars such as Mbappe, Neymar or Messi, who can bring the victory by their own. For this victory, Leipzig needs the whole mechanism to work like a clock, and now, as we see, failures have begun in this mechanism.

Zenit tied with Lyon in France (1-1), although it was in the lead after the first half. And the Russians were stronger than Benfica at home (3-1). As a result, they take first place in the group. Zenit is strong in attack now. As you can see, it regularly scores in the group. In the championship of Russia (where Zenit leads by the way), the team also scored 27 goals in 13 rounds. And it did not score only 3 times in those 13 rounds. In general, Zenit left the field without a goal scored only after four of the last 32 games.
In spite of its latest performance, Leipzig is a favorite, moreover, with a decent margin. Well, let's see how it will be able to confirm the status given to it by bookmakers. And they even very weakly believe in the goal of the visitors. But there they are wrong. Zenit scores everyone - Benfica (at home) and Lyon (away), and Slavia Prague, Bordeaux, Copenhagen, Villarreal, Fenerbahce suffered from it in the previous Europa League. What is current Leipzig better than those rivals are? By nothing. The Germans are in a recession, judging by their latest results. And Zenit is on the move, Zenit is aggressive in attack, and its forwards are experiencing a second youth. Therefore, Zenit can score a goal in the upcoming meeting with Leipzig, which conceded in seven of its last eight matches.
Prediction for the match: Zenit to score over 0.5 goals
