News from Zenit
Coach Sergei Semak will be without Daler Kuzyaev due to a muscle problem, while goalkeeper Stanislav Kritsyuk has been out of action since the second loss to Juventus. Therefore, Mikhail Kerzhakov is expected to start as a starter for this match.
Both Douglas Santos with a muscle strain and Magomed Ozdoev with a knee ligament injury returned to activity last week and could have minutes today.

News from Malmö
Erdal Rakip missed the final qualifying matches for the North Macedonia World Cup due to a knee problem, which also kept the midfielder out of the weekend's game. Captain Andreas Christiansen was also forced to retire in the win in Gothenburg earlier this month and is still out of the game with a hamstring injury, so he is not expected to make an appearance until the trip of the next month to Turin.
Jonas Knudsen is long absent for the home side, who can line up in a 3-5-2 formation led by Croatian striker Antonio Colak on the attacking front. Meanwhile, Veljko Birmancevic is the man most likely to replace Rakip.

This is how Zenit arrives
When the Russian champions meet their Swedish counterparts on Tuesday, they will seek third place from Group H to advance to the Europa League, Zenit only need to secure one point, but their recent and uneven form suggests such a result cannot be guaranteed. They have lost nine of their last 11 matches in Europe's elite club competition, finishing last in their group in the past two seasons.
Sergei Semak's team may once again top the Russian league standings and claim their fourth consecutive national championship, but they have lost four of their last eight starts in all competitions. Since the beginning of November, Zenit have been beaten twice by Group H leaders Juventus, then beat Nizhny Novgorod 5-1 last weekend.

This is how Malmö arrives
The two consecutive defeats against Chelsea in recent weeks buried Malmö's hopes of defying the odds and reaching the knockout stages of the top club tournament, as they find themselves at the bottom of Group H without a point or a goal.
Since that loss at Eleda Stadion, Jon Dahl Tomasson's team appears to have regained confidence by beating IFK Gothenburg on the road, before drawing 2-2 at Hacken on Saturday. However, they will have to keep improving if they want to score their first point and score their first goal in the group stage, against Zenit who already beat them in St. Petersburg.
