Zenit - Sevilla, Europa League quarterfinal. In this post tips and match review.
ZENIT ST. PETERSBURG - SEVILLA
Zenit in Sevilla had a lot of absences(Hulk, Criscito, Danny and Smolnikov) and we all expected a convincing win by Sevilla.
Instead the 2-1 leaves this match very open.
True, Sevilla dominated the first leg, sieging Zenit's box for almost 90', but at the same time Zenit when playing home is really tough: they haven't lost an home match in Europa League for the last 14 appearances and mainly has all its best players available, exception made for Garay and Ryazantsev.
In our opinion, Sevilla's experience in Europa League will be decisive tonight and spanish team will get the qualification.
ZENIT ST. PETERSBURG: Lodygin; Criscito, Neto, Lombaerts, Smolnikov;
Garcia, Witsel; Shatov, Hulk, Danny; Rondón.
SEVILLA: Rico; Coke, Pareja, Kolodziejczak, Tremoulinas; Krychowiak, Iborra; Vidal, Reyes, Vitolo; Gameiro (or Bacca).
