Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    Oleg Shatov's first half strike is enough to give Zenit a slender lead to take into the second leg. Despite a much-improved second half display from the hosts they were unable to find the equaliser and will now have to chase the game in the return. The margin of victory could have been greater but both José Rondón and Danny struck the woodwork for André Villas-Boas' team.
  • Substitution
    90+1
    Solovyev (in) - Hulk (out) (Zenit)
  • Yellow Card
    88
    Faty (Standard Liège) is cautioned by the referee.
    Hulk is in full flight as he heads dangerously towards the penalty area. His progress is halted by Ricardo Faty who picks up a yellow card for his troubles.
  • Substitution
    82
    Ryazantsev (in) - Shatov (out) (Zenit)
    The No17, who scored his second-ever UEFA Champions League goal this evening departs to a warm reception, replaced by Aleksandr Ryazantsev.
