FT - Zenit 2-0 Liverpool

Those two goals in three second-half minutes have put this tie firmly in Zenit's favour. It could have been so, so different too, with Luis Suarez missing a hatful of chances to put the Reds ahead prior to those Zenit goals. Onwards to Anfield next Thursday.


SHOT - Fayzullin

It's Zenit going forward here, Fayzullin launching a shot from all of 40 yards which is deflected wide of Reina's post. The resulting corner is cleared.

Major task for Liverpool next week

A minute plus stoppage time to play, and sadly Liverpool look a long way from getting an away goal. Next week's second leg looks like an uphill task now.



SAVE - Malafeev

Suarez's free-kick is on target but Malafeev saves low - and then Stewart Downing rather wimps out of a shot on the rebound, Zenit clear.



Zenit's debutant Portuguese defender takes out Suarez late and Liverpool have a free-kick in a dangerous position.


SUB - Zenit (Fayzullin on/Kerzhakov off)

Luciano Spalletti also shuffles his pack with a few minutes to play.
