Villarreal: Getting better (Recent Form: WWLLDW)

Villarreal are having a tough campaign, but they’ve won the last 2 matches. A week ago they defeated Zenit (3:1) in the first-leg of the Europa League tie in last 16 and this victory was followed by the league win over Levante (2:0). Villarreal take on Zenit at La Ceramica on Thursday in the second-leg. “We can't go onto the pitch relaxed, thinking that we have the tie wrapped up. We need to earn the passage at home, playing well, like we did in the first leg. To do that, we need to be focused and look for goals. If we score, we make it very complicated for then. We need to think about our style of play and not so much in the result. We will put out the best XI to win this match. That doesn't mean there won't be changes. There are players who will stay in the starting XI and others who will come in. If we want to win, we need to be intelligent, not rush things or make mistakes. We need to have the ball and a cool head,” said coach Calleja.


Zenit Petersburg: Facing a difficult task (Recent Form: WLWWLW)

Zenit are facing a very difficult challenge after losing the first-leg at home, nevertheless they don’t give up. “The team has a common understanding that we are going to Spain to win. 3:0, 4:1, 5:2, and so on - is not easy. But we already have an example of overturning the tie with Minsk [August 2018, in Europa League qualification]. Although then we played at home. We'll see. The Spaniards in front of their audience will not sit back in defense. This gives us additional chances,” said club’s president Alexander Medvedev.



Summing up, it looks like hosts are favourites of this clash. Villarreal should have the mental edge over Zenit after the first game and perhaps the Spanish outfit may get an another victory.
