Zenit remain in qualifying position after draw

Following a great win in Portugal over Porto two weeks ago, Zenit missed the chance to secure 2nd place in the Group, tying up with the “Dragons” (1-1), as Axel Witsel made his re-appearance in the starting squad. Lucho Gonzalez handed the visitors the lead but Hulk levelled soon after and the former Porto striker could have sealed victory from the penalty spot, but Helton denied him a second goal. The Russians take on Atletico Madrid on 26th of November at Petrovsky Stadium, with the Spaniards having already qualified with a perfect run of 4/4 and the Russians trying to dominate their second place in the group.
