The match between “Zenith” and “Arsenal”, which was held at the St. Petersburg stadium “Central”, ended with the score 2:0 in favor of the hosts. In the first half, Zenit had a territorial advantage, but didn’t score. The hosts opened the scoring just after the break when referee Alexei Eskov has appointed a penalty in gate of Vladimir Gabulov . Maxim Belyaev in his own penalty hands had stopped Artem Dzyuba and the judge found a violation on the part of the Tula defender. A penalty converted by Hulk.
In a minute after this goal the score became 2:0. Immediately after Arsenal’s match, the hosts caught the ball, Giuliano made the pass on Miguel Danny, he went one-on-one and arc threw the ball into the top corner of the gate Gabulov. Goalkeeper “Arsenal” tried to challenge this goal, because, first, the captain of “Zenith” was offside, and second, in the time of the attack “Zenith” on the lawn was one of the Arsenal players and the referee was right to stop the game.
“First of all, disappointed by the referees. These two points early in the second half was key. Everyone knows that the film provokes. Second ball foul on Aleksandrov and was clearly out of the game. We are suffering from judicial decisions. I think that hysteria that “Zenit” raised after a match in Perm, worked. Last match was the hand of Moscow in this, perhaps, the hand of Peter. A club like Zenit is in need of judges”, — quotes the chief coach of “Arsenal” Sergei Kiryakova Sports.ru.
