Kornilenko seeks six-point return
Russian champions Rubin Kazan have to take maximum points from their next two Champions League games in order to keep their qualification hopes alive, according to striker Sergei Kornilenko.
With just two points from their opening three Group D games, Kurban Berdyev's men need to pick up wins against Panathinaikos and FC Copenhagen in three weeks to go into their final group game at Barcelona with a chance of progressing.
"We want six points from these games, but even if we succeed qualification will probably not be in our hands," Kornilenko told www.uefa.com.
"We are no worse than Panathinaikos and we can beat them, especially with our fans behind us."
The 27-year-old scored his first two goals for Rubin since his loan move from Zenit St Petersburg in the 2-0 win at PFC Krylya Sovetov Samara on Friday, the first goal ending the club's 304-minute drought, and he hopes that he can continue his form against Panathinaikos.
"It was a relief (to score)," he said. "To start with, I lacked a little understanding with my team-mates, sometimes luck and sometimes the right skills. Rubin really expected goals when they took me on loan, so now I feel much better."
Rubin have won their last seven games at home in the league and are looking to go a ninth game unbeaten, but will have to chase the points without Roman Sharonov who has a season-ending knee injury.
Panathinaikos, who like Rubin are well adrift of the other two sides in the group, sit bottom on one point, but go into the fixture boosted by Saturday's 2-1 derby win over Olympiakos.
A brace from France striker Djibril Cisse, who now has seven goals this season, was enough to earn Panathinaikos a come-from-behind win, and they travel to Russia needing just two more goals to bring up 300 in European competition.
Gilberto Silva is back from a ban and Cedric Kante should be okay to play after returning from a hand injury at the weekend, but there are injury doubts over Sebastian Leto (knee) and Sotiris Ninin (foot).
Stalemate hampers duo`s qualification hopes
Rubin Kazan and Panathinaikos saw their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League knock-out stage recede further with a goalless draw in Russia.
The hosts were the only side to carve out any chances of note, with Alexander Ryazantsev's fierce header which goalkeeper Alexandros Tzorvas did well to turn away the closest they came to breaking the deadlock.
The Greeks barely threatened after the first minute when Tzorvas' opposite number Sergei Ryzhikov picked up a backpass, the resulting indirect free-kick coming to nothing.
The point apiece left Rubin and Pana in third and fourth place in Group D respectively, some way adrift of leading duo FC Copenhagen and Barcelona.
Rubin almost shot themselves in the foot in the opening minute when Salvatore Bocchetti's backpass sold Sergei Ryzhikov a little short and the goalkeeper had to dive on the ball with Djibril Cisse closing in.
The free-kick was teed up for the Frenchman, who drove his low shot into the wall.
At the other end Sergey Kornilenko drove in a shot to the near post from a very acute angle on the right which Tzorvas saved with his feet.
Rubin were looking the most likely to open the scoring, with the vision and quick-feet of Carlos Eduardo their best source of attacking inspiration.
And Alexander Ryazantsev brought a fine save out of Tzorvas in the 40th minute when he met a cross from the right with a powerful header on the run which the keeper got strong palms to and pushed out.
Kornilenko then made a mess of on a glorious headed chance when unmarked at the far post, not getting a good enough contact on the ball from Alan Kasaev's left-wing cross and glancing it tamely wide.
The Russians started the second half as they had finished the first and Kornilenko intelligently flicked on a low cross from the left at the near post, but no one read it and the ball flew across the face of goal.
Ryazantsev tested Tzorvas again in the 78th minute, the keeper saving his effort with his feet, and frustrated the hosts again by keeping out Cesar Navas' weak shot a minute later.
Substitute Obafemi Martins then got his leg to a Bebars Natcho free-kick but Tzorvas reacted very well to make the save from point-blank range as Rubin failed to find a way through.
