Zenit St. Petersburg face Lyon at Gazprom Arena on Wednesday, Nov. 27. Here’s all the info you need to watch.
In the fifth game of the Champions League group stage, Zenit St. Petersburg host Lyon at Gazprom Arena. Lyon enter the game three points ahead of Zenit in the group and a victory on Wednesday will put the French club through to the knockout stage. The Russian club will likely have to win their last two group stage games if they are going to advance to the round of 16.
Zenit are first in the Russian Premier Liga but are coming off of back-to-back losses against RB Leipzig. In the first game against Lyon, the Russian side was able to steal a point in a 1-1 draw. Artem Dzyuba assisted on Zenit’s goal in the first game. Dzyuba is having an incredible season. The Russian striker has 11 goals and 11 assists this season and will play a key role for Zenit in the reverse fixture.
Lyon have been one of the more disappointing clubs in Ligue 1. The club decided to make a managerial change after picking up only nine points in their first nine games. In the first five games since Rudi Garcia took over as manager on Oct. 14, Lyon picked up 10 points. The resurgence of Lyon can be credited in part to the front two of Memphis Depay and Moussa Dembele. Depay scored in the first game against Zenit and has 11 goals this season. While Dembele has 10 goals, including four in his last four Ligue 1 games.
