Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Thanks to a 1-1 draw with Lazio in the last group game, Borussia Dortmund booked their place in the Champions League last 16. Lucien Favre’s troops are now on a quest to secure top position in Group F, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Zenit on Tuesday evening. Even though key attacker Erling Haland remains in the recovery room, Borussia Dortmund are seen as hot favourites to win the match.
The likes of Marco Reus and Thorgan Hazard should be recalled to the starting XI after they were rested in a 1-1 draw with Eintracht Frankfurt at the weekend. Zenit, on the other hand, have nothing to play for in Tuesday’s clash, and even though first-choice centre-forward Artem Dzyuba has overcome his injury, we are tempted to put our money on the Group F leaders this time out.
