Mordovia Saransk v Zenit St Petersburg (Match 15) - 29/11/2014 - Kick off 18:00

Tomorrow we are sure to face a much tougher task than the easy mid-week win over Benfica. Benfica of course only had 1 shot on goal in the entire 90 minutes, I've no doubt Saransk will be able to get at least 2 shots on target in 90 minutes, it's just 1 shot every 45 minutes!

A win and we go 11 points clear, not bad for a team in crisis)

The following players have flown -

Goalkeepers
Yury Lodygin
Vyacheslav Malafeev
Maksim Rudakov (connecting with the team in Saransk)

Defenders
Alexander Anyukov
Igor Smolnikov
Luis Neto
Ezequiel Garay
Nicolas Lombaerts
Domenico Criscito
Milan Rodic
Jamal Khodjaniyazov

Midfielders
Anatoly Tymoshchuk
Pavel Mogilevets
Axel Witsel
Alexander Ryazantsev
Viktor Fayzulin
Andrey Arshavin
Oleg Shatov
Ivan Solovyov
Danny

Forwards
Hulk
Rondon
Ramil Sheydaev

I'm expecting the following line up -

Lodygin
Criscito
Lombaerts
Garay
Smolynkov
Witsel
Fayzulin
Shatov
Danny
Hulk
Rondon

Javi Garcia is out injured, Kerzhakov is also out injured, doubts about Lombaerts fitness. I wouldn't be surprised to see Smolnykov get a run out in place of Anyukov. Elsewhere after being dropped mid-week and looking like Maradona when he played against Benfica, Shatov will definitely start. Fayzulin looked better than Ryazantsev mid-week, Fayzulin has of course been completed taken out of quite a few recent squads, this is not injury related, this is due to AVB saying a lack of form and a lack of improvement in training following being dropped.

Let's do this Zenit!

They still beat Benfica twice and Benfica only had 1 shot on target all night!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Benfica go down in history as the first time ever a first seed have finished bottom of their Champions League group!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What does that make Benfica??? You couldn't even score a goal in 2 matches against us and lost twice to a "pathetic football team who play zero football and have a garbage coach"!!!!!!!!!!

So bitter, twisted and Zenit obsessed. It's almost worth not replying too anymore as your just to "remedial"

Arshavin going to be the first sub for Zenit. Rondon has come off.

Opening 15 mins of second half have been uneventful for both teams.

A lot of the action around their box but were having problems creating a chance, the pitch and conditions aren't the best but they are the same for both teams.

C'mon Zenit!

Arshavin with a shot blocked by the defender on the line, 30 seconds later Hulk poked the ball past the keeper from 18 yards but agonisingly it went the wrong side of the post when it looked to be going in.

Shatov with a decent shot, unsure if it would have definitely gone in but the defender blocked it close to the goal.

Fayzulin and Danny off

Ryzanstsev and Sheydayev on

Were not creating enough clear chances for the all the possession we are having in the final third.

No idea how we didn't score in that passage of play, 4 chances created in just over a minute.

I didn't see the first half but I can't remember the last time I saw Lodygin.

We could have played without a keeper in the second half.

Neither did I, but yeah, in the second half we tried hard to score at least one goal...it's really a shame...:/
