Zenit St. Petersburg 2-0 Lyon
RB Leipzig 2-2 Benfica
RB Leipzig – 10 pts
Zenit St. Petersburg – 7 pts

The objective for Zenit St. Petersburg is to grab that right result against a Benfica side that is looking for a third place finish and a possibility of the Europa League Round of 32.
The objective for Lyon will be to get a win against an RB Leipzig team that might want to win the group.
