Aleksandr Kerzhakov scored just four minutes after his half-time introduction to secure the win for FC Zenit in Farum, leaving FC Nordsjælland up against it ahead of next week's return in Russia.

Both contenders were in the group stage last season, though Luciano Spalletti's side now seem the more likely to reproduce that showing this term thanks to Kerzhakov's intervention in Denmark. The hosts stuck rigidly to their passing, possession-based game, but were unable to find an equaliser to take into next Wednesday's return.
