Zenit come into this game with third spot all but secured given their vastly superior goal-difference and winning head-to-head record against Malmo. They are unbeaten in their last five in all competitions and the one defeat in the last eight came against Juventus. At home, the Russians have struggled in this competition winning just one of their last five.
Chelsea top the group but with Juventus on the same points as them they know they need all three here to finish top. The defeat to West Ham in the Premier League at the weekend put to an end a 12 match unbeaten run in all competitions. Both their road group games have finished 1-0 with a victory in Malmo and a loss in Juventus.
Zenit vs Chelsea Predictions
Backing the visitors to come out on top looks the play here given the gulf in class between the sides but you can get extra value in this by backing both teams to score also. Chelsea looked vulnerable at the back against West Ham and Zenit are capable of at least netting once against the Londoners.
Malang Sarr might not feature here so it is worth keeping an eye on team news but if he does he looks good value. Marcos Alonso has played a lot recently in the absence of Ben Chilwell and he might be rested in this one with talk that Malang Sarr might be next in line for the advanced wing-back slot. If he does play then he will get chances so his double-figure anytime scorer price looks cracking value.
