FC Zenit St. Petersburg 8-0 FC Encamp Dicoansa (Zenit win 13-0 on aggregate)
FC Zenit St. Petersburg showed no mercy for FC Encamp Dicoansa tonight with a convincing home victory against the Andorran side.

Randjelovic hat-trick
Encamp were barely able to get out of their own half as the Russian team ran in eight unanswered goals, six of them in the second half. The Yugoslavian striker Predrag Randjelovic, who was returning to starting lineup after a long spell in the reserves, scored a hat-trick, while his strike partner Sergei Ossipov scored twice.

Ossipov scores first
The opener came from Ossipov on 13 minutes after a cross from Randjelovic, who added the second himself soon afterwards. Zenit managed to keep the score at 2-0 until half-time, but after the break found their opponents even tougher.

Treble completed
Olexander Spivak scored the third in the 57th minute, and Ossipov made it four a quarter-of-an-hour later. Randjelovic then registered twice in six minutes to complete his treble.

Darius Miceika and Andrey Nikolaev added the remaining goals to the delight of the home supporters at the Petrovsky stadium. Zenit's goalkeeper Sergei Ivanov did not have a save to make throughout the match and some home fans even began to cheer on the Andorran team in sympathy during the second half.

Dream debut
It was the first game in charge for Zenit's new coach, Boris Rapoport, whose team set the record for an aggregate score for a Russian club in European football.
