Champions League: Zenit bankers to bounce back against AEL
Thereï¿½s plenty to play for as the Champions Leagueï¿½third qualifying roundï¿½stage reaches its conclusion so itï¿½s the perfect time for another of our Ladbrokes News accumulators.
This time we have a fivefold featuring some of the stalwarts of Champions League qualifying so back Zenit, Dinamo Zagreb, Steaua Bucharest, APOEL and Sparta Praha all for victory at odds of 7/1.
Read on to find out why…
AEL produced a huge upset when the two sides clashed last week but despite their victory the Cypriot side still face a huge task at theï¿½Stadionï¿½Petrovskij.
Axel Witsel is suspended for theï¿½Russiansï¿½following his red card last week but Andre Villas-Boasï¿½ side have the necessary quality to turn things around and reach theï¿½play-offï¿½round.
There was not much to choose between the two sides from the first leg but back on home soil Dinamo Zagreb are rightly the favourites for victory.
The Croatians are on a run of three straight wins without conceding a goal at Stadion Maksimir and look set to put their Danish opponentsï¿½to theï¿½sword.
Steaua Bucharest more than held their own in last seasonï¿½s group stage with draws against Schalke and Basel at home andï¿½Constantin Gï¿½lc?ï¿½sï¿½sideï¿½can have success again atï¿½Stadionulï¿½Steaua.
Theï¿½Romanianï¿½side will have to close two sections of the stadium after a Uefa punishment but that should not cause too many problems for the home side as they look to inflict Aktobeï¿½s fifth Champions League away defeat in nine matches.
APOEL are on a run of 22 matches without defeat in front of their home fans and after their fight back from two goals down in the first leg are favourites to qualify for the play-off round.
Zenit,ï¿½Porto and Lyon have suffered defeat at Neo GSP in recent years andï¿½Giorgo Donisï¿½ side can add the HJK scalp to that list.
With Sparta Praha leading 4-2 on aggregate Malmo will be going all out attack in a bid to turn around the deficit.
While we all know the Swedish side are excellent on their home patch, chasingï¿½the game could play right into the hands of their Czech opponents, who haveï¿½racked up 17 goals in just five games so far this season.
