Zenit take on the visitors Dinamo Minsk at the Saint Petersburg Stadium in the second leg match of the UEFA Europa League third qualification round. The match will be played in Saint Petersburg on Thursday, August 16th. The first leg match ended with a 4-0 win for Dinamo Minsk.
Quite frankly there is no need to have a second leg match between Zenit and Dinamo Minsk. The first leg match was an indicator of a current shape of the Lions but a lot of experts think that the team of Serge Semak is likely to score at least two goals in front of their home crowd in the upcoming fixture. However it is a big question whether Zenit are going to win the match at all. The 0-4 loss for Zenit in Minsk was a shame. There were rumors that the first leg match was a fixed one but they were likely untrue. Dinamo Minsk just outplayed the Blue-White-Sky Blues. It`s likely that the head coach of Zenit will give a chance to his reserve players in the second leg match because it will be impossible to win back that handicap. Furthermore, Zenit were not looking good in the staring tours of the Russian Premier League.

Dinamo Minsk were fantastic in the first leg match. The team did not have high sill players in its squad but their playing style and teamwork were great. Dinamo Minsk have been looking good in their defense in the Belarusian Premier League this season. The offensive line has been not bad too and often scored goals. Dinamo Minsk have lost only once since May and have won 80% of their played games since then. Now the team is on the 2nd place in their local league with only seven goals conceded after sixteen tours. The Belarusians also have a high chance of winning their national cup.
The first leg match decided everything. Zenit have a better squad but a worse playing style than Dinamo Minsk. Even if Zenit wins in the upcoming match the score will be low.
Prediction for the match: Dinamo Minsk to win with +2.0 handicap.
