Liverpool resume their Europa League campaign with a trip to Russia to face Zenit St Petersburg today. The Reds will aim to secure a positive result in the first leg of the last 32 tie to bring back to Anfield. Zenit were favourites to win the league at the start of the year, but after buying Hulk, the team was split between the high earners, and the Russian players. Another issue is the overtly racist nature of the fans in Russia, which LFC have already spoken to UEFA about. A walk off is a distinct possibility tonight if the stewards/referee doesn’t control the crowd. As concerns the match, the teams have never met before, but LFC shouldn’t go forward with big numbers as counter attacks are what Zenit are best at. BR has taken a strong team to Russia as the EL is our only hope of a trophy this year.
