Zenit St Petersburg v Torino Preview

Torino will make the near 1761 mile journey to Saint Petersburg in search of a positive result in their first leg of the Europa League last 16 clash with Zenit.

Toro have no injury concerns ahead of the trip to Russia, and Maxi Lopez, who scored three times against Athletic Bilbao should get the opportunity to add to his goal haul in this competition. Matteo Darmian and Omar El Kaddouri, who were both rested against Udinese on Sunday, should also start.

Zenit are the current leaders of the Russian Premier League, having only lost two matches all season in the league. Their home record is also a formidable one, with AndrĂ© Villas Boas' side being unbeaten in their last twelve Europa League games in Russia.

Prediction
Zenit 2-1 Torino
