  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.

    90
    Arshavin (in) - Hulk (out) (Zenit)
  • Red Card
    89

    Just when Standard thought their night could not get much worse, Ricardo Faty brings down Igor Smolnikov, who was perhaps through on goal, and the midfielder is sent off. It is now ten against ten.
  • Substitution
    83
    Anyukov (in) - Shatov (out) (Zenit)
    A productive and lively evening for Oleg Shatov comes to an end to be replaced by defender Aleksandr Anyukov, who will help shore things up for Zenit in the closing stages.

    83
