In the second match of the Europa League, Russia's Zenit will face Spain's Betis, but only on the road. The Petersburg side looked quite good in the first game, but they were a bit unlucky. Now Zenit needs to get better, but we doubt Betis will be easy to beat. Let's look at the teams' form and suggest some great betting options!Get Your Welcome Bonus!
Betis is in great form at the moment. They are unbeaten in four games in a row, with a total score of 11:6. The Whites are averaging around four goals per game. First, the team defeated Rayo Vallecano (2:1) in the first match of the Spanish Cup semi-final and Levante in the championship by two goals (4:2), then defeated Zenit with a score of 3:2, and finally outplayed Mallorca at home.
Betis are likely to play second-placed in the return leg to minimise the risk of defensive setbacks. Their lead over Zenit is slim to just one goal.
Zenit Saint Petersburg
The St Petersburg side needs to do a tremendous amount of work in the upcoming game because this is not the RPL, where every other club plays at a lower class. In the first game, Zenit showed excellent football. They failed to save a draw in the first half and scored a win in the second, but if you look at the picture as a whole, the game was at a high level. We expect attacking football and excellent execution of chances from Zenit.
Expert Betting Tips
In the first game, the opponents indeed turned up the heat. The teams scored more in the first 45 minutes than in many hockey games. In the return game, we expect the same result. Zenit needs to playback, and it will be no surprise if they spend most of the game in someone else's half. Betis will be waiting for chances and playing on the counterattack. After the first goal, this match will quickly take on some colour, and the second one won't be long in coming. In general, we are waiting for BTTS again. Prediction: Both Teams To Score.
