Benfica x Zenit
Benfica come into this tie on the back of a disappointing 2-1 defeat to FC Porto on Friday night. The Portuguese side need to quickly move on from the loss ahead of the welcome of Russian outfit Zenit St. Petersburg. Zenit will play their first competitive fixture since the 2-1 loss to Gent in the Champions League back at the beginning of December. It remains to be seen how they can adapt back to the rigours of European action following their lengthy winter break. While Zenit may have impressed in the group stages of the Champions League, the lack of action for over two months could hinder their chances of a positive result.
Prediction: Benfica wins
