Zenit St Petersburg will target an upset in their meeting against Borussia Dortmund in the 1st leg of the Round of 16 in the Champions League. This match will be the first time Borussia Dortmund and Zenit St Petersburg have faced each other. Catch the live streaming here.
The first leg is scheduled for a 6 pm CET (10.30 pm IST Tuesday evening) kickoff.
Dortmund who reached last year’s Champions League final, are in a bit of slump this season. They are now 20 points behind Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich after their 3-0 defeat at Hamburg on the weekend.
Russian club Zenit currently sit second in the Russian Premier League behind leaders Lokomotiv Moscow on goal difference. But the Russian club have failed to replicate their consistent domestic form on the European stage and have conceded nine goals, scoring only four in reply.
With Borussia Dortmund’s domestic title hopes over, their Champions League campaign will be taken seriously. Securing crucial away goals could be their game plan to progress to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
