Dortmund vs Zenit St. Petersburg Match Preview, 26 October 2020, 16:14
Dortmund vs Zenit St. Petersburg Match Preview

Borussia Dortmund welcomes Zenit this Wednesday in Germany, and both teams are in a rough situation already after losing the first round games last week.

Hosts are surely encouraged after winning the Rivierderby match last weekend against Schalke quite convincingly, while champions of Russia are not having such great time on the domestic scene, losing at home to Rubin Kazan and slipping to the 2nd place on table.

As expected, Lucen Favre's boys are labelled as big favorites to win this match at low 1.33 odds. Zenit do have history of performing well against big European teams though, so they definitely shouldn't be underestimated.

Borussia Dortmund vs Zenit Head-to-head

There were two previous head to head matches between these opponents, both in Champions League season 2013/2014.

Both teams won one game each, but Dortmund advanced to the next round with 5-4 win on aggregate.

Borussia Dortmund vs Zenit Prediction

Last week's loss to Lazio SS was quite unfortunate for BVB. They were extremely lucky in a couple of occasions and conceded some uncommon goals. Dortmund dominated throughout big part of that game but still lost 1-3.

Form when it comes to Bundesliga is impeccable lately though. They have three victories in a row, having defeated Freiburg, Hoffenheim and Schalke with a total goal difference of 8-0.

Erling Haaland is once again topping team's charts in terms of goalscoring, and will represent the biggest danger for Russian defense. Norwegian striker scored four goals in last four matches.

Club Brugge beating Zenit St Petersburg last week was one of the biggest upsets of first round. Russian champions are having big issues when it comes to defending lately, failing to keep one single clean sheet in the last four outings.

That will cost them a lot at Signal Iduna Park in our opinion. We are backing home win HT-FT as primary tip.

Borussia Dortmund vs Zenit Betting Tips

Home win HT/FT @ 1.90
