Chelsea vs Zenit Preview and Livestream
Chelsea currently lead the Group H table with 12 points and will qualify as group winners if they match Juventus’ result on the night. Both teams are level on points with the Italian giants losing 4-0 to Thomas Tuchel’s men last time out. It is clear the defending UEFA Champions League champs are coming for the crown again but will now have to fight it out in Russia for three points.
Zenit are confirmed to go through as the third-placed team to the UEFA Europa League. They have 4 points, three more than Malmo, and will be in the same position no matter what the Swedes do in their game against the Old Lady. For them, the game is a dead rubber. But Chelsea will take this seriously because qualifying as the group winners has its own perks.
