Benfica On Fire
Benfica have won 15 of their last 16 games and face opponents who still appear rusty.
In a Champions League tie which appears to hang on a knife-edge, Benfica are well priced to seal the deal by winning the second leg as well at 16/5 with Bet365.
There are two principle reasons to be confident of an away win on Wednesday.
Firstly, the Portuguese are in sizzling form having won 15 of their last 16 matches across all competitions, culminating in a 1-0 victory at Sporting to replace them at the top of the table.
Secondly, Zenit do not look to be back in any kind of groove yet following their winter break. Andre Villas-Boas’s boys lost the first leg 1-0, and have then failed to score over 90 minutes in two subsequent domestic matches.
Benfica showed they have a notable away win in their armoury when beating Atletico in the group stages and they can repeat the trick here.
