Lazio hosts Zenit at the Stadio Olimpico in a fixture from Group F of the Champions League. Let’s take a really good look at this game in our football betting tips this weekend.
For Lazio this is an opportunity to top the group eventually or at least keep the second place. Right now the Italians are second in the group with 5 points after three matches played. They are just one point behind the leader Borussia Dortmund, but at the same time just one point ahead of the third Club Brugge. Simone Inzaghi’s boys must not forget that their work here is still not done – Lazio must make few steps more in their quest of reaching the 1/8-finals.
When these two teams met in Russia two weeks ago the game ended with a 1-1 draw. Alexandr Erokhin opened the score for the hosts, but in the 82th minute Felipe Caicedo equalised for the Eagles. This goal could be really important for Lazio in the long term.
During the weekend Lazio showed us they are in a good shape lately. The Romans paid a visit to Crotone in the Serie A and enjoyed a 2-0 win.
Zenit are in a difficult situation in this group at the moment. The point they won against Lazio two weeks ago was their first in Group F. Right now the Russians are 4th and they must make a serious effort to get the third place at least.
Few days ago Zenit made a dissapointing draw in the Russian Premier League. The champions faced Akhmat Grozny away from home but only won a point with a 1-1 draw.
That’s our football betting tips this weekend for the Champions League fixture between Lazio and Zenit at the Stadio Olimpico. The Italians are the favourites here, but let’s see what Zenit will do – they are desperate for points.
