The first match of the confrontation, which took place on the field of the German squad, ended with a minimum victory of 2: 1 in favor of the home team. In order to break through into the next round, Zenit can have one goal scored, but it’s very important not to miss out on your own.
After the resumption of the championship of Russia Zenit played in the Premier League two meetings, which ended with the same score 0-0. First Zenith in his field could not break through the defenses of Amkar, and then dispersed peace with Rostov.
