Worth mentioning: Zenit have not played any other games since the previous meeting with Fenerbahce as the league in Russia is in winter break. This might be good for them, as they will have more than a week to analyze and prepare for the decider on Thursday, but on the other hand Zenit might have lost their playing rhythm.
Fenerbahce had a game last weekend and managed only to draw at home, despite playing with a man more for over an hour. The key for progression in the next round for the Turkish side might be scoring an away goal, but they have managed just one in their last four visits away from home.
