Austria v Zenit (last game of 2013!)

Squad that travelled:

Lodygin, Baburin;

Anyukov, Criscito, Lombaerts, Hubocan, Neto, Ansaldi, Smolnikov;
Shirokov, Zyryanov, Faizulim, Tymoshchuk, Mogilevets, Witsel, Arshavin, Bystrov, Shatov;

Kerzhakov, Hulk.

No Danny, as I unfortunately expected. Hopefully Arshavin has a good game in his absense.

Zenit will have in excess of 2,500 fans for this match, almost 37,000 tickets have already been sold for this match.

Let's do this Zenit!

You want us to play with 5 defenders in a match where we must win?

Yep and no DM.

Ansaldi to be used as a winger.

You want to play Ansaldi instead of Arshavin? I disagree.

How many attackers do you want in the team who don't want to track back?

Hulk, Arshavin, Kherzakov, Shirokov and Shatov?

Need some balance, having Ansaldi will help Witsel with defensive duties and mean Fayzulin can be benched, it's that or Zyrianov!

It's not Football manager with a 4-1-5 formation and the only one in midfield is not an out and out DM.

Shirokov tracks back plenty. Check the stats, he's consistently amongst the leaders in distance covered in our games. Shatov does too, remember when he played fullback earlier this season? Shatov can do Faizulin's role just fine.

And a draw gives us nothing anyway, only a win would help us. We have to go out there with an attacking lineup. If we take the lead then maybe we could make some subs and tone done the aggressiveness.

We needed to beat Ural too and we beat them by playing Ansaldi as a winger and Criscito and Smolynkov as full backs.

We only need to win by 1 goal, we don't need to go there and try and win 6-0 or something.

It will be 20 million percent our team have either Fayzulin, Zyrianov or Ansaldi in midfield. No way Spalleti goes for your Football manager midfield formation of Shatov, Shirokov, Arshavin, Hulk and Witsel lols.

CDG must never have heard of the 4-2-3-1, aka the most popular formation in football these days. How exactly is a midfield of Witsel-Shatov-Shirokov any crazier than a midfield of Faizulin-Shatov-Shirokov that we used against Porto?

You do realize that Shatov has played CM and DM for us this season quite a few times, right?

And FYI, I expect Faizulin to get the start. I would just prefer if Shatov played instead.

I'd say more of a 4-3-3 where Faizulin will be on the wing as he's played in previous seasons.

so arshavin or bystrov should be used.....

on other hand it can mean ansaldi and criscito both will be more wingers than backs today so fayzullin and zyryanov in the middle.

smolnikov is one of the best zenit players at the moment,bench not fair to him.
