Rosenborg v Zenit Petersburg Team News

Zenit have previously won the group with maximum points achieved, winning 6 from 6 in the ‘10/’11 campaign, and they remain on course for a repeat of this achievement.

The visitors arrive with 9 points from 9, and a +9 goal difference. To keep up that trend, 9 of their 11 goals have so far come from two players - Emiliano Rigoni with 5 goals and EL top scorer, Kokorin, is just one behind with 4.

Each of Zenit’s games in the competition have ended with over 3.5 goals (total) and they have won each of these with at least a 2 goal advantage. They have been winning at both half and full time in each of their 3 EL outings to date.

Roberto Mancini will more than likely switch his squad around for this game, given that he does not have to worry about only being able to include 6 foreign players in the team due to Russian PL rulings.

Expect goals - 7 of Rosenborg’s last 8 matches have ended with over 2.5 goals (total), the visitors have emerged victorious in the last 3 head to heads between the 2 sides.

Teams' Possible Starting Lineups:

Rosenborg: Hansen - Meling, Skjelvik, Reginiussen, Hedenstad - Trondsen, Lundemo, Jensen - Adegbenro, Bendtner, Jevtovic (4-3-3 formation)
