Live in-play betting – 

Zenit have been in fine form recently as the have managed 3 wins from their last 4 games and they trashed Vardar Skopje 0-5 in their first Europa League game.

That result was a show of how ruthless the Russians can be when they are allowed space to play their game.

Although they suffered a 3-2 loss to city rivals Dinamo in the Russian Cup, they bounced back with a win at Krasnodar on Sunday.

They have been solid defensively at home as they have kept 4 consecutive clean sheets in front of their home fans and they will be looking to keep that record going here.

Sociedad will visit Zenith with hopes of getting back to form as they have been dismal recently.

They have lost their last three matches, the last of which was a disappointing 2-3 home loss to Valencia a few days back.

They started their European campaign with a solid 4-0 win of Rosenborg and they will be heading into this game with confidence from that win.

They face an uphill task in Russia with Zenit Saint Petersburg being one of the toughest teams to break down when they play at home.
