Zenit St. Petersburg vs Rosenborg Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Zenit Petersburg will look for their third victory of the Europa League group L when they welcome Rosenborg at the Stadion Krestovskyi on Thursday afternoon. Zenit Petersburg managed a comfortable 3-1 home win over Real Sociedad last time out in the Europa League thanks to an early goal from Emiliano Rigoni and a brace from Aleksandr Kokorin. Meanwhile, Rosenborg won 3-1 at home over Vardar thanks to goals from Nicklas Bendtner, Anders Konradsen and Vegar Eggen Hedenstad. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

I can’t look beyond Zenit’s home form in the Europa League over the past few years, so I’m backing them to grab another easy victory in this one. Furthermore, Rosenborg’s away form in the Europa League over the past few years has let them down, so I can’t see them secure a positive result here.

Zenit St. Petersburg Preview

Zenit Petersburg have endured a mixed run of form over the past two months, winning five, drawing three and losing two of their last ten games across all competitions. They were on a three-game unbeaten run across all competitions prior to their embarrassing 0-1 home loss against Arsenal Tula in the Russian Premier League at the weekend. Zenit still sit at the top of the Premier League table, but they are now just two points clear of the second-placed Lokomotiv Moscow. The good news is that Zenit made a perfect start to their Europa League group stage campaign, registering back-to-back victories over Vardar and Real Sociedad. They are this Europa League group stage campaign’s joint goalscorers at the moment with eight goals under their belts after two rounds. Aleksandr Kokorin has been in fantastic shape throughout this campaign, helping the team with four goals and one assist in his two group appearances. Overall, Kokorin has scored six goals in Europe so far this season and he also bagged eight goals in 13 appearances in the Russian Premier League. Zenit’s home record in the Europa League over the past few years has been near perfect as they have only lost once in their last 22 home fixtures.

Victor Fayzulin is the only injury player for Zenit ahead of this clash.

Rosenborg Preview

Meanwhile, Rosenborg kicked off their Europa League group stage campaign with a humiliating 4-0 defeat on the road at Real Sociedad, but bounced back with a comfortable 3-1 home win over Vardar on matchday two. They haven’t lost a single game since their 4-0 loss at the hands of Sociedad and come into this clash on the back of a five-game unbeaten run across all competitions. The Norwegians have been scoring goals for fun recently, as they found the back of the net in three occasions in four of their last five games across all competitions. Rosenborg currently sit only in third in the group L table tied on three points with the second-placed Real Sociedad, but the latter will travel to the bottom-placed Vardar on Thursday. In addition, Rosenborg’s recent away form in the Europa League has been poor as they have only won once in their last six games, conceding at least two goals in five of these. The only good thing is that Rosenborg looked solid on the road over the past three months, losing just once in their last ten away games across all competitions while winning seven. Nicklas Bendtner is Rosenborg’s topscorer in the Eliteserien at the moment with 15 goals under his belt, and he has also provided one goal and one assist for the team throughout this Europa League group stage campaign.

Rosenborg Team News

Yann-Erik de Lanlay and Matthias Vilhjalmsson are both missing through injury, but Magnus Stamnestro is back on training.
