Rosenborg - Zenit

The 3rd round of the UEFA Cup was drawn Friday. Rosenborg will meet Erik Hagen and Zenit St. Petersburg.

"A good draw. It is favourable for us that they too are off season when we meet them," Rosenborg coach Per-Mathias Høgmo says.

Of course. This was a win-win for both clubs.

It seems by the way like the match will be played at Kuban Stadium in Krasnodar:

Rosenborg have a poor record against Russian sides, losing three of their four previous encounters, although they have won one of two games at the Lerkendal stadium.

That came in the 1992/93 UEFA Cup in the second leg of their first-round tie against FC Dinamo Moskva when they triumphed 2-0, but it did little to change the overall complexion of the tie as Dinamo were already leading 5-1 after the first encounter.

Rosenborg took another two-goal lead against FC Spartak Moskva in the first group stage of the UEFA Champions League three years later but the Russian team stormed back with four unanswered goals to make it 4-2. They continued that momentum in the reverse fixture at the Luzhniki stadium, scoring four more before Karl-Petter Løken gave Rosenborg a late consolation.

Zenit have met just one Norwegian side before, when they were drawn against Vålerenga IF in the first round of the 1985/86 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup. Sergei Dimitrev broke the deadlock to set the home side on course for a 2-0 win in the first leg at the Petrovsky stadium, and repeated that feat in Norway two weeks later as Zenit completed a 4-0 aggregate victory.

Rosenborg Fan,you will play in St.petersburg and not in Krasnodar,that should be two frozens games.....

On another note,looks like Zenit rejected a 12 millions euros offer by a english club in December for Kerzhakov......so Gazprom didnt want to sell one of their two best players......

Dynamo Moscow must be the only Russian club who can buy Kerzhakov or Arshavin.......

At least the weather in Russia in the moment isn't suitable for football...

Rosenborg have by the way played lots of European cup matches during the last winters. Because of the Gulf Stream, the winter in Trondheim is pretty mild, and there have been no problems playing in February and March.

In 2004/05 we competed in the new Scandinavian Royal League, and then we played regularly at Lerkendal Stadium from 12th February and onwards.

The pitch will of course not been perfect, but it will do. Here is a photo of what it looked like in mid February this year: Rosenborg - Esbjerg 1-0

Is it soil heating at St. Petrovsky Stadium? If not, I really cannot see how the pitch can "melt" in time of the match...

Norwegian international forward Steffen Iversen has rejoined Rosenborg BK, ten years after leaving the Trondheim club for a spell in English football.

"It feels great to return to Trondheim," he said.

With the Norwegian season still months off restarting, Rosenborg have had a restful winter, after being limited to friendlies since they were eliminated from the UEFA Champions League. But Per-Mathias Høgmo's team have nonetheless been blighted by injury, with Per Ciljan Skjelbred (broken leg) and Thorstein Helstad (foot) both long-term absentees, while Daniel Braaten and Jan Gunnar Solli are struggling groin strains. Ørjan Berg is recovering after an ankle operation and, to cap in off, illness saw Bjørn Tore Kvarme and Øyvind Storflor isolated in their rooms at Rosenborg's training camp in La Manga.

"It is interesting that Zenit are in the same situation as us. They have just been playing friendly games since December, so in that respect we are lucky to be playing them now," Rosenborg coach Høgmo says.

Zenit won 2-0 in Norway,Arshavin 22,Kerzhakov 32),the ref was the Portuguese ref Lucilio Batista,remember him Julia???

So a good result for Zenit and some important points to Russia rankings.....

The ref was terrible..The Rosenborg penalty was not a penalty,becasue there was two playrs behind him and Braathen would not have reached the ball anyways. And the goalkeeper Espen Johnsen should have gotten the red card when he clearly hand balled outside the area.

Kershakov was a good player in my view. He seemed really quick, and had some good moves. His striking partner was also intruging to watch..And by the way Kershakov deserved a penalty when he got held by the opposition defender..

Congrats on your win Zenith...

Yeah...He seemed like he was a Rosenborg supporter..

But I agree on the slovakian goalkeeper, he was very good, and made some fine saves. Martin Skretl also was a fine player with good speed. What do you think of Erik Hagen?? He is a beast

Good win for Zenit and more points to Russia ranking.....

Zenit-Rosenborg 2-1(Kerzhakov 55,Denisov 87;Riseth 45)

So with this win Russia is on the 9th place in the uefa rankings,this mean a directly qualified for the 2007/08 champions league.....

Contofalsky was injuried,hope is not too serious,it will be a big blow to Zenit.......

Now Zenit will face the winner of Marseille-Bolton game....it will be funny to play again with Bolton.....
