Zenit v Rubin Kazan (Match 23) 12/04/2015

We are currently 10 points clear with 8 matches left, a win here and we are step clearer being crowned Champions.

Early team news - Criscito is back after being suspended in the mid-week win over Terek Grozny. Witsel is suspended. Garay and Ryzanstev returned to training yesterday after being injured in the win over CSKA Morecambe.

With Hulk, Danny, Smolynkov and Criscito being ruled out of the Seville match via suspension. They will all start this weekend, not that they wouldn't of anyway.

I'm going for this line up -

Lodygin
Criscito
Lombaerts
Neto
Anyukov
Smolnykov
Garcia
Danny
Hulk
Shatov
Rondon

Garay and Ryazantsev to be on the Bench.

Let's do this Zenit St Pete!

Kuban have just taken the lead in the derby, outstanding strike from 30+ yards.

If Kuban can hang on, we could go 13 points clear with a win tomorrow with just 7 matches left.

I'm saying it for the 4th or 5th time, were going to win the Title at Spartak!

Match day!

Just less than 2 hours away.

On a side-note, Seville came back from 0-2 down at home to Barcelona to draw 2-2 with them. They haven't lost a home match for 15 months! I didn't catch the match to see if they picked up injuries, anyone see it? The only player I can find ruled out of the match is their keeper Beto who has a long term injury, they appear to have no suspensions.

Danny still not scored this year, you got to fancy him today! He has been in great form since the winter break and I'm sure I'm not the only who has noticed he is playing a lot more killer balls now than previously mainly been a dribbler.

Let's do this Zenit!

Half-time

Zenit 0 Rubin 1

I've only seen the last 5 minutes of the first half so have no idea how the match has gone. In those 5 minutes Hulk should have scored, Rondon put him clean through on goal and a poor shot allowed the keeper to make a save.

AVB has put Shatov and Garay on the Bench, which is good news as for the Seville match is concerned as along with Witsel who is suspended today, we will have 3 really fresh players for the game.

I expect Shatov to come on in the next 15 minutes unless we equalise.

Let's do this Zenit!

Just seen the highlights of the first half, brilliant through ball set up Rubin's goal.

At the other end Rondon should have had a penalty for a tug back which would have left him with a clear header on goal from about 6 yards. It could have been a Red Card too.

There didn't seem to be too much happening in the first half.

danny pretty awful

why doesn't arshavin get a chance?

rubin defending well but miss three key players upfront.
they even have to play with a original left back as left winger.

unlike in the past rubin have now 13,14 players max....the rest is mordovia level.

Garay for Rondon.

Zenit despite being down to 10 men should have gone 2-1 up, great dribble by Danny, Hulk with a poor finish straight at the keeper.

Kherzakov on for Danny

Danny missed a one on one after being put clean through by Shatov.

I can't recall us ever missing so many one on ones in 1 match before.

Full time

Zenit 1 Rubin 1

Zenit played with 10 men since the 58th minute, we had countless chances to win the game. I can't recall Lodygin making one save despite the 1 man advantage Rubin had.

We are 8 points clear with just 7 matches remaining. We have a very good run-in, our hardest matches out of the 7 are Spartak away and Loko at home.

Today's goal for Hulk was his 50th goal for Zenit in his 102nd match.

Very good return for a player who has played the vast majority of games as a winger.

I think AVB showed his hand for the Sevilla game with the subs. I expect all three CBs to start along with Anyukov and Shatov as FBs.
