FC Zenit and FC Porto remain second and third respectively in UEFA Champions League Group G after playing out an entertaining 1-1 draw.

The visitors drew first blood, taking a deserved 23rd-minute lead thanks to a well-directed header by Lucho González. Zenit were struggling to find any rhythm, but got back into the match before the half-hour mark when Hulk seized on a defensive mix-up. The former Porto favourite had a chance to put Zenit in front early in the second period, but his low penalty was easily saved by Helton.

Reaction

I can't explain why we start so badly, but it's not the first time. After the break we took the initiative. I can't even describe how well played my lads in the second half.

Over the two games against Zenit it's fair to say we were superior. Today we put it a great first half, but we didn't win. The team is very sad but we won't give up.
