ZENIT +0 AH @ 1.98Final result: 3 - 0
Profit: 0.00 - 8 = -8
Spalleti announced that Milan are not the favourites to win their group and I was really impressed by the confidence shown by the coach. Actually that shouldnt be surprise as Zenit made 2 transfers bombs in the last days, taking Hulk and Witsel from porto and benfica, spending 80 milion euros. That will improve their quality for sure and I expect zenit strong motivated to reach at least the semi finals this year in the CL.
Spalleti and his team got the experience at the european scene and I rate them as capable to be factor this season.
Malaga is nothing special. They were quite lucky to win progress to the group stages, after taking comfortable schedule against poor Panathinaikos this season. Malaga lost big part of their experienced and key players from the last season, and the quality of the team is with class below , compared to their team from last season IMO.
key strikers nistelroy and Rondon left the club, as the first one finished his career while the 2nd one signed with Rubin. Also Santi Cazorla signed with Arsenal, while experienced defensive midfielder Maresca and defender Matjisen left to Sampdoria and Feyenoord.
I rate Zenit as the better side and I cant see them losing their first CL game this season

Witsel won't play today while I don't expect Hulk to adapt that easily with the new squad. Zenit looked pathetic vs poor Terek Grozny this weekend and I don't expect them to win in Spain. A draw is all the can get!
I agree with you on this one. Good luck!
