Zenit and Real Betis face each other at Gazprom Arena in what is expected to be an interesting Europa League game.
The Zenit have not been in action in the national championship since December 12, 2021, which is probably the main reason why home win should not be considered. January signing Ivan Sergeev is widely expected to make his Zenit debut against Real Betis.
Los Beticos, on the other hand, have been scoring goals for fun in La Liga of late. The Andalusian side proved their worth in a 4-2 win over Levante, and we predict that they will give fans yet another reason for celebration on Thursday evening.
Nabil Fekir will be the man to watch in the away side, while Sergio Canales is a major doubt following his positive test for coronavirus. The two teams meet for the first time ever in European competitions.
This match will be played on 17/02/2022 at 18:45
Score Prediction: 1-2
