Liverpool vs Zenit: 5 Ways for the Reds to Secure a Europa League Victory

As we all know, Liverpool were on the end of a 2-0 loss in the first leg of their Europa League knockout match against Zenit St Petersburg in Russia last Thursday.

It wasn’t a Valentine’s Day to remember for Brendan Rodgers and his side.

You could argue that the goals that they conceded were preventable, but it still took one hell of a strike from Hulk to break the deadlock before Sergei Semak put the game beyond doubt with Zenit’s second.

Liverpool created a few decent chances last week, and they’ll feel reasonably confident heading in to Thursday’s second leg.

The Reds have been imperious at Anfield lately, and they’re scoring plenty of goals too, which is a plus.

Their cause hasn’t been helped by Fabio Borini’s injury on Sunday, which has ruled him out for the rest of the season, and Daniel Sturridge is ineligible because of Chelsea’s involvement in the competition too.

Once again, the weight of expectation will fall on Liverpool’s little Uruguayan magician, Luis Suarez, to provide the goal threat.

Even without two of their recognised attackers, it will still be a close run tie and it’s by no means over yet.

In no particular order, let’s take a look at the 5 ways that Liverpool can beat Zenit on Thursday night.
