Basel v Zenit St. Petersburg Football Match – 07.03.2013 – UEFA Europa League Match Preview and Prediction and Squad Info
Basel v Zenit St. Petersburg football match will be in 07.03.2013 at Switzerland for UEFA Europa League match. Basel had decent performance against Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk and they have qualified round of 16 at UEFA Europa League. I was expecting them to lose both matches against Dnipro but they have done good job in both matches and they deserved to qualify. They came to UEFA Europa League from Champions League qualification rounds this season and they got 3 wins, 2 draws and 1 lose at home matches at Europe matches. They have won against Dnipro, Videoton and Sporting Lisbon, They got draw against Molde and KRC Genk and they have lost against CFR Cluj. Basel is also in title race in Switzerland league and I believe they will win title this season too. Aleksandar Dragovic won’t be in Basel squad in this match cause he has banned at Dnipro match. This is an important lose for Basel in this match.
Russian league didn’t start yet and Zenit coach want his team to keep their form and they are making friendly matches for preperation to Europe matches. Zenit St. Petersburg has played against Siena at away and they have won match with 1-0 score about 7 days ago. They have also played 4 away matches in Europe and they got 1 win and 3 loses. Defender Domenico Cristico has injured and he won’t able to play in this match. Zenit Petersburg’s away match performance is not really good but they have generally lost better teams then Basel at away matches.
THE MATCH WILL BEGIN AT 20:05 WITH GMT
Match Prediction: More then 2,5 goals
