Turkey: Fenerbahce wary of Zenit's physical prowess ahead of Europa clash
Fenerbahce's head coach Ersun Yanal commented on his side's upcoming match against Zenit Saint Petersburg while speaking at a press conference in Istanbul on Monday. «We are going to play against a very good team tomorrow. A team which is always at the top level of European football. A team which is leading the Russian league now,» Yanal said. Yanal said Zenit's strength is their physicality, with Fenerbahce defender Roman Neustadter highlighting their use of a target man in Artyom Dzyuba. «But we are Fenerbahce, and as Fenerbahce our power and our vim and vigor to win cannot be questioned. It is going to be a good game,» the coach added. Fenerbahce and Zenit are set to face off in the first leg of their Europa League Round of 32 clash at Istanbul's Sukru Saracoglu Arena on Tuesday. The return match is set to be played on February 21 in St. Petersburg.
