Match Preview

Pok would pocket point Hajduk Split coach Stanko Poklepovic would be more than happy with a point from his side's Europa League game at Zenit St Petersburg. Poklepovic has Zenit down as comfortable favourites to win Group G, an assessment backed up by the current standings which show the Russian side top with six points from two matches. Split are three points back in third, behind AEK Athens on goal difference, with both sides having won one and lost one. With that in mind, Poklepovic has modest ambitions for the game against Zenit, from whom he is hoping for a favour or two. "Zenit, being the strongest team, can help us if they beat our competitors, and play for a draw against us," he told Our Zenit, a weekly newspaper devoted to the Russian club. "In this case the match in St Petersburg becomes even more important. And we're going to fight for a point which might be very important as the tournament goes on." Zenit's Croatian full-back Ivica Krizanac agrees his side should take the points. "On paper we're the clear favourites," he said. "But on the field everything's different. "We have to play 100%. If we do everything right, then Hajduk has no chance." He added: "The journalists, and the players, and the president of Hajduk all say that Zenit should be playing in the Champions League now. "They know us and respect us. And even if they lose tomorrow, it won't be anything bad for them." With the Russian Premier Liga coming towards its conclusion, Zenit are fighting on two fronts and face a punishing schedule of 12 games in the next month and a half. With eight games left to play in the league, unbeaten Zenit are six points clear of second-placed Rubin Kazan with two games in hand. Boss Luciano Spaletti accepts his players will be tired, but has told them to make sure their good work thus far does not go to waste. "We'll think about a rest a little later," he told fc-zenit.ru. "But for now there's a risk that all of the work we've done over the last 10 months will be wasted. "So that's why our footballers need to understand really well that over the next month Zenit will be playing for everything that it's accomplished up to this point. And there shouldn't be room for anything else. "We'll rest later. We'll get time for that."

Match Report

Zenit hit summit after win Zenit St Petersburg moved six points clear at the top of Europa League Group G with a comfortable 2-0 win over Hajduk Split at the Petrovsky Stadium. Luciano Spalletti's side were rarely troubled by their Croatian visitors as a goal in either half from Alexander Bukharov and Danny saw them ease to victory. Ante Vukusic had an early chance for Hajduk after just 30 seconds but he fired over the bar, and Zenit responded with a period of sustained pressure. Danny fired across keeper Danijel Subasic, forcing him into his first save of the night before Igor Denisov was off target with an effort from the edge of the penalty area as the Russian side surged forward. And they duly took a deserved lead in the 25th minute as Danny's right-wing cross picked out Bukharov's late run perfectly for the striker to nod home from close range. Vukusic was proving to be Hajduk's most threatening attacking force but he fired wide when well placed before also missing the target with a header from a corner. Bukharov came close to his second early on in the second half but saw his drilled effort just clear the crossbar, and Zenit ought to have doubled their lead in the 62nd minute. Danko Lazovic's corner came all the way through to Nicolas Lombaerts at the far post, but Subasic made a stunning save to deny him. But that was only a brief reprieve for the visitors as five minutes later Aleksandar Lukovic picked out Danny, and the Portuguese midfielder's cleanly struck volley flew into the net. With the points assured the game rather petered out from that point, although Goran Jozinovic missed a great chance to grab a consolation goal as he blazed wildly wide in stoppage time.
