Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    Málaga secure their first-ever UEFA Champions League win in style then with a comprehensive victory against Zenit. The visitors spurned clear chances but the Spanish side, inspired by Isco who scored twice, Javier Saviola who scored the other and winger Joaquín, were dominant and well-deserving of the three points. Málaga will now travel to Anderlecht in Belgium for matchday two in high spirits while Zenit must raise themselves for the visit to St Petersburg of AC Milan.

    What a half. Isco and Javier Saviola sent the Málaga crowd into early raptures with well-taken strikes in the third and 13th minutes, while restricting Zenit to one venomous strike from Hulk which struck the crossbar.
