Zenit Petersburg v Villarreal Team News

Villarreal are in desperate trouble in La Liga, with their unbeaten European campaign the only thing to shout about as they sit in the relegation zone on the domestic front. That record in this tournament will come under real threat in Russia, despite winning at Sporting Lisbon as an outsider.

The Russian outfit showed a huge mental strength to overcome one-goal deficit from the first leg of the R32 tie with Turkish giants Fenerbahce. On that occasion, the Russians offered more than their opponents going forward, while they limited them to very few opportunities at the other end.

Including qualifiers, Zenit have won all six of their home games in their Europa League campaign and will be confident of picking off an opponent that will be extremely low in confidence after another defeat at the weekend.

The Yellow Submarine did prove their defensive stability by eliminating Sporting Lisbon in the last 32 round. However, they drew each of three group stage games on the road against Spartak Moscow, Rapid Vienna and Rangers.

Teams' Potential Starting Line-ups:

Zenit Petersburg (4-4-2): Lunev; Zhirkov, Rakitskiy, Ivanovic, Smolnikov; Driussi, Barrios, Ozdoev, Mak; Azmoun, Dzyuba.

Villarreal (3-4-2-1): Fernandez; Ruiz, Mori, Gonzalez; Pedraza, Caseres, Fuego, Gaspar; Cazorla, Fornals; Bacca.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Zenit Petersburg: Daler Kuzyaev, Aleksandr Erokhin, Claudio Marchisio, Aleksandr Kokorin.

Villarreal: Bruno Soriano, Manu Trigueros, Daniele Bonera, Javi Fuego.
