In St. Petersburg, FC Zenit dealt with Spartak Moscow, defeating it with a score of 7-1.
After the first half, which ended 4-0 in Zenit’s favor, it seemed that the second half of the meeting would be a calm formality. But it was not there! On the 53rd minute, after the confusion among the St. Petersburg defencists, Spartak managed to soak the score with the efforts of Promes. However, after a couple of minutes Mostovoy restored the gap in the goals scored to four, simultaneously completing a double, which was unspeakably pleased with.
In the 75th minute, Dzyuba entered the field, replacing Rakitskiy. He seemed to have a presentiment that in three minutes a penalty would be awarded against Spartak, and he would have a chance to score his next duty goal to the Muscovites. His intuition did not disappoint him – the score became 6-1 in favor of Zenit. But that was not all, as the substitute Erokhin, without thinking twice, made the score 7-1 on the 87th minute.
