Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    Porto suffer their first defeat in Russia after two goals from Roman Shirokov helped Zenit to a first group stage win in this campaign. James Rodríguez had given the visitors an excellent start but the dismissal of Jorge Fucile at 1-1 proved crucial.
  • 90+4
    Malafeev (Zenit) blocks a shot.
  • 90+4
    Hulk (Porto) delivers the free-kick on target.
    It was a powerful strike but straight at Vyacheslav Malafeev and that is the final chance of the game.
  • 90+3
    Huszti (Zenit) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on João Moutinho (Porto).
    A last chance for Porto. Hulk will strike it.
  • Substitution
    90
    Bukharov (in) - Kerzhakov (out) (Zenit)
    Kerzhakov doesn't get the goal despite numerous chances but his strong running has really given the visiting defence problems, highlighted by his excellent assist for Danny to score the third.
  • 87
    Fernando (Porto) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Fayzulin (Zenit).
  • Substitution
    86
    Huszti (in) - Zyryanov (out) (Zenit)
  • 86
    Kerzhakov (Zenit) misses the target.
    The striker has had ten of his side's 19 attempts on goal. This time it goes wide. It isn't his day in front of goal.
  • 82
    Kerzhakov (Zenit) misses the target.
    Aleksandr Kerzhakov powers down the right but his effort is wide once again. It seems he won't get a goal tonight but his side are looking very likely to get all three points.

    Danny (Zenit) misses the target.
    And now Danny could have extended the lead. Viktor Fayzulin veers across the pitch from the right and finds the 28-year-old who cuts in from the left and curls a shot just wide of the far post. Zenit could get another here.

    Another effort on goal from the striker, his eighth of the game but the ball once again flies high. Porto's main man, Hulk, has only had three efforts on goal.

    Hulk (Porto) delivers the free-kick wide.
    It is almost level straight away. A free-kick 30 metres out does not seem to signal too much danger but the Brazilian rifles a shot at goal which flies just wide of the post. Vyacheslav Malafeev looked nervous as the ball goes just wide.
  • 64
    Denisov (Zenit) is penalised for a foul on Belluschi (Porto).
  • Goal
    63
    Shirokov (Zenit) scores!

  • 57

    The second half begins.
  • End Time
    The referee blows for half-time.
    Zenit have hit back to draw level through Roman Shirokov and will be hopeful they can register their first win of the group stage with a man advantage in the second period. Porto were dangerous early and James Rodríguez put them ahead but they have looked vulnerable for long spells.
