Torino welcomes Zenit at the "Stadio Olimpico di Torino" in a meeting rematch of the Europa League. A week ago, in the first game between the two teams, the Russians took the lead with 2:0, which will now defend in Italy. The game on Thursday - March 19, 2015 and the odds offered by the leading bookmaker bet365 are as follows: 2.70 for a home win, with a draw at 3.30 and 2.88 for the victory of the guests.
The great season of Torino in Europe continues, but now the Bulls have to deal with a very difficult task. The coach Giampiero Ventura determines Zenit as the favorite, but certainly hopes of ultimate success for his team.
Rematch with Zenit missed Marco Benassi, who received a red card in the first match and was punished. Because of injuries, with question in the composition of Torino are Salvatore Masiello and Giuseppe Vives. Giampiero Ventura will rely on attacking tactics, and hopes for an early goal to stiff the strong team of the guests.
Zenit arrives in Torino with serious self-esteem of the lead from the first leg. Andre Villas-Boas however hurriedly took his players to the ground, as said that the chance of ultimate success of both teams is 50 / 50. Portuguese specialist expects very aggressive and assertive play by the hosts.
Problems in the camp of Zenith are related to the punishment of Javi Garcia and injuries of Andrey Arshavin and Viktor Fayzulin. In the days before the game, Aleksandr Anyukov and Aleksandr Kerzhakov got sick and will not travel to Italy.
The composition of the Zenith has a lot of problems, like missing a lot of key players. Torino is strong team and assertively will seek victory. In view of this we rely on the equal chances for both sides.
Prediction: Draw @ 3.30 at bet365
