Zenit Spartak has always been one of the most awaited matches of the year. After an unwanted result midweek, the team wanted to focus its attention to the big game versus Spartak and give a massive performance.
And massive performance it was. Zenit was on the front foot from the word go with waves and waves of attacks marauding the opponents.
The incessant attacks made by Zenit culminated in Kokorin scoring the winner in the 36th minute and opening the floodgates. The score was doubled within no time and Zenit ended up scoring 5 in the match. Spartak got a solitary goal in the 71st minute through a penalty.
Mr. Mancini appreciated the team’s performance after the match but also warned the team against slacking off.
Looking forward to a continuing this this form into the season.
