Zenit are on the verge of crashing out of the Europa League after a wonderful performance from Villarreal in Russia.


Villarreal shrugged off their disastrous domestic form to record an incredible 3-1 victory in the first leg and now are odds on with the betting sites to progress to the next round of the Europa League. The Spanish side can afford to let Zenit do all the work and must surely make the quarter finals now.

Zenit have had a problem with scoring goals all season but need to rectify that now quickly as three goals are needed – at least – to go through to the next round. The Russian side were easily outplayed in the second half of the first leg and are in real trouble of exiting the competition.

Villarreal had only won two of their last 15 games in all competitions before the first leg victory and will now have to make sure they don’t let all their good work go to waste. Concentration is key for the Spanish side – but they now have one foot on the last eight already.

Zenit look like they will have to concentrate on winning their first Russian Premier League title since 2015 rather than European glory after the first leg result. They now have to really go for it in Spain but this could end in a 1-1 draw.

The draw

Zenit need to go for the big win but Villarreal are able to pick the Russian side off on the counter attack – and although there may not be many goals this could end in a draw.

Draw with goals 

If Zenit cannot muster the effort to score in this one then they never will. The Russian side absolutely have to find the net but will leave gaps at the back in doing so.

Head To Head

Zenit have only ever won one match between these two sides – a 1-0 victory in the 2007/08 UEFA Cup.


  • For a team who are not enjoying the best of seasons Villarreal are seemingly saving everything for the Europa League – only four other clubs have scored more in the competition.
  • Zenit need goals but have scored one goal or fewer in 14 of their last 19 matches in all competitions.
  • Villarreal have still not lost a single match in this season’s Europa League campaign – winning four and drawing five games.
  • Things are not looking good for the Russian side – Zenit have lost four of their last six games away from their Saint Petersburg home.
