  • Start Time
    The second half begins.
  • End Time
    The referee blows for half-time.
    A mixed 45 minutes for Zenit, who doubled their aggregate advantage but find themselves a man down for the second period after Viktor Fayzulin's red card. That incident has given Standard a slither of hope going into the second half.
