LIVERPOOL resume their Europa League campaign next week and it has to be a good time to face Zenit Saint Petersburg.
It won’t be easy in the freezing conditions in Russia but Zenit haven’t played competitively since December due to their winter break.
I believe Liverpool will take full advantage. Our form has been good recently and over the two legs I expect us to get past them.
We are capable of getting a decent result over there and then finishing the job off at Anfield.
The Brazilian striker Hulk hasn’t been a great success since Zenit paid 55million euros for him last year but he is capable of causing problems and will need to be shackled closely.
I wasn’t that impressed by Anzhi in the group stage and they are ahead of third placed Zenit in the Russian League. That suggests to me that Liverpool will prove too strong.
