Borussia Dortmund vs. Zenit St. Petersburg was once a football hipster dream tie. In this year’s edition of the UEFA Champions League, it’s more of an afterthought. Both teams are decent enough, but they’ve lost a lot of their luster recently and it’s tough to imagine either team making a serious run for the title in this edition of the tournament.
Throughout their incredible run over the last three seasons, Borussia Dortmund have had quite a bit of good luck with injuries. Their stars have been able to stay on the pitch, while their thin group of central defenders has never been tested by more than minor scares. They’ve always appeared to have enough depth in midfield as well, especially with the addition of Nuri Sahin on loan.
But BVB’s status as challengers to Bayern Munich’s throne in the Bundesliga and as dark horse contenders for the Champions League title has been severely damaged by the injury bug this year. Three first choice players have been claimed for the season and others have gone in and out of the lineup. They’ve held on to a Champions League place in Germany and managed to make the Round of 16 of this competition, but they look nothing like last year’s spectacular team.
Now Robert Lewandowski is leaving while Sahin’s loan is set to expire and Sebastian Kehl will probably head for retirement or a decent paycheck on another continent. Marco Reus and Mats Hummels are probably eying the exit door as well. There will always be a fanbase and youth program that allows Dortmund to compete for the top four in the Bundesliga, but Jürgen Klopp’s dream of turning Dortmund into a world powerhouse could well be dead.
Zenit, meanwhile, are just about the same team they’ve been for the entirety of Luciano Spalletti’s reign as manager. Hulk and Axel Witsel have remained with the club despite the unwillingness of a certain subset of fans to accept them and they’re performing at a high level, even if they haven’t quite met expectations. Zenit’s old guard is slowly disappearing, but Spalletti has done a good job of promoting younger players and buying replacements.
The Russian side could make a run much like Dortmund’s from last season if they ever get all of the pieces together, but some combination of injuries and club politics seems to derail them every year. And, sure enough, they’ve picked up some casualties in preparation for this tie.
