My name is Dave, a European football enthusiast, I believe all leagues have their own charms. This is the reason why I have been watching and studying those less popular leagues for 20 years.

Not long now until Champions League action on Tuesday as Malmö meet Zenit St Petersburg.
Having started in the first round of qualifying, Malmo FF made it back to the big time after six years away, after they secured a 21st Swedish championship triumph. Malmo FF were beaten home and away by Chelsea, leaving them rock-bottom of a group in which they have already conceded 12 goals - including four to Zenit last time the clubs met.
Zenit St. Petersburg
To secure the third place required to switch across to the Europa League, Zenit must only secure a point. have may lead the league table once again, but have lost four of their last eight outings in all competitions. They have posted three imperious victories during that time though, by an aggregate of score of 16-3 - including a 7-1 thumping of Spartak Moscow last month. Since the start of November, Zenit have been beaten for a second successive time by Group H leaders Juventus - losing 4-2 in Turin - then drawn away to Ural before beating 10-man Nizhny Novgorod 5-1 at the weekend.
Zenit have a very slim chance of progressing to the knockout round. They are favorites owing to their superior pedigree and quality. Therefore, expect them to be unbeaten.
