As for the match itself, the Hoops go into the second leg with a 1-0 lead over Roberto Mancini’s side.
The Bhoys dominated the first leg, and were fully deserving of the victory which Callum McGregor’s second-half strike provided.
Brendan Rodgers and his players will be fully aware that Zenit will be a far tougher prospect to deal with in the Krestovsky Stadium, and it will take a huge performance from the Hoops if they are to reach the last 16 of European competition for the first time in five years.
Brown will be a key player in the game, his partnership with Eboue Kouassi was one of the main reasons that the Hoops dominated the first leg, as their control of midfield provided a platform for the attacking players to build on.
