Zenit left very good impressions despite the 1:0 defeat in the premiere by Chelsea in London and now they want to collect the first three points in the group. On Saturday, they won the 4th match in a row against Krylya Sovetov in the Russian Premier League, and are main contenders for the title. The difference in quality was evident in the home match against Juventus, where Malmo was invisible in 0:3 loss. The team of John Dal Thomason entered the match dynamically and pressed the Italians in the first 20 minutes, but without being able to threaten effectively, and that was all they do. In the league, they are in a race for the first place, but have serious injury problems and will be without Beijmo (14/0), Rieks (13/4), Knudsen (12/1), Toivonen (8/0), Lewicki (6/0), and Moisander (1/0). I think that Zenit has more quality and experience in European matches and will grab the first victory.
