Zenit vs. Bayern UEFA Cup Semi-final 2nd leg
From right to left: Kahn, van Bommel, Schweinsteiger, Lahm, Toni, Klose, Ribery, Jansen, Demechelis, ze Roberto, Lucio.
I think those little Bayern kids could have played better than the big boys on this day.
From left to right, the Zenit players are: Tymoschuk, Malafeev, Pogrebnyak, Zyrianov, Fayzulin, Krizanac, Gorshkov, Anyukov, Denisov, Dominguez, Shirokov.
The two captains, Oliver Kahn of Bayern and Anatoliy Tymoschuk of Zenit meet.
Plenty of media was on hand for this huge match.
Zenit managed to shoot four goals past Oliver Kahn, and this match was a cruel end to the Bayern legend's European career.
He won't ever do this for Real Madrid or Barcelona, but Pavel Pogrebnyak has still had a pretty damn good UEFA Cup campaign.
Goal!!!!!!! Pogrebnyak shocked Bayern with his set-piece blast.
What a happy day this must have been for Zenit President, Alexander Dyukov.
As always, the support at the Petrovsky was superb on Thursday.
The elusive Igor Denisov attempts to shield off Mark van Bommel.
Olexandr Gorshkov did a very admirable job at left-back in Radek Sirl's absence; here he battles with Miroslav Klose.
The Zenit captain was superb on this day.
So close, but no cigar. Anyukov combined with Dominguez on a beautiful 1-2, but the fullback couldn't finish.
Bayern probably would have been better off with this clown in net.
Phew. Luca Toni's header slipped just over the bar.
Victor Fayzulin, who scored Zenit's third goal, battles with Marcell Jansen.
Tymoschuk and van Bommel in an odd-looking position.
Anyukov was a thorn in Bayern's side all night long, and his superb performance forced Hitzfield to take Jansen off at half-time.
Safety first. Malafeev was confident in net, and his impressive performances must have Igor Akinfeev sweating a bit with Euro's just around the corner.
Martin Demechelis and Bayern couldn't stop Pogrebnyak on this day, and Bayern manager Ottmar Hitzfield's disgusted glare says it all.
Konstantin Zyrianov scored a spectacular goal to put Zenit up by two; here Franck Ribery and Lucas Podolski watch the Zenit midfielder closely.
The smiles say it all: even Zenit must have been shocked at such a fantastic result.
Alexander Anyukov may have been Zenit's MOM. He certainly flustered Bayern's most dangerous player, Frenchman Franck Ribery.
A lot of pressure was on Alejandro Dominguez, and the Argentinian delivered a nice performance; here he fights off Ribery and Philip Lahm.
It's just a damn shame that this man will miss the final.
Smiles, and disbelief all around: [From left to right] Krizanac, Anyukov, Gorshkov, Ho, Shirokov, Zyrianov, Malafeev, Fayzulin.
Who would have ever thought these guys would make it to Manchester?
It's safe to say that Zenit would not be in the UEFA Cup final without the support of their fantastic fans; I think they certainly realize that.
I just love the excitement and elation on the face of Zyrianov in this photo. It's fantastic to see a guy who has been through so much tragedy have chance to smile. What a fantastic team player.
One last shot at this historic day for Zenit.
