Draw: 12/5
Liverpool: 12/5

This means that a successful $100 wager on Zenit would yield a total of $230 while the same wager on Liverpool would yield a total of $340.

Zenit are slight favourites.

Zenit are in 3rd place in the Russian Premier League and they played their last competitive match on December 10th when they tied 2nd place Anzhi 1-1. Since then, the Russian clubs have been on the winter break.

Liverpool are in the 9th place in the English Premier League and most recently they lost at home to West Brom 0-2.

Zenit have invested a lot in their team including the summer transfer window addition of the Brazil international Hulk who they brought in from Porto for a total fee of 48.500.000 £. Zenit did not make it past the group stage in the UEFA Champions League this season, but they are hoping to go far in the UEFA Europa League.

Liverpool are having a poor year in the English Premier League so far and this makes success in the UEFA Europa League that much more important.

What will the outcome be? How will Zenit play after such a long break? Will Liverpool be able to recover from their most recent Premier League loss to West Brom?

We find out tomorrow. Should be a great match.
