– Hello, dear fans of football. Only that “the locomotive” has started in the Europa League with a goalless draw against Copenhagen. It’s time to play Zenit in the Europa League group stage.
The Macedonian club are definitely still popular among Russian fans. It was he who in 2003 drove the army of the qualifying round of the Champions League (2:1; 1:1). Those matches are unlikely to want to recall someone from the fans of CSKA. So it was all hopeless.
This season, the Macedonians also managed to achieve a sensational result. From the Champions League, the team beat “Copenhagen” (which is playing “the locomotive”), but in the playoffs of the Europa League take the modest club, and beat the terrible Turkish “Fenerbahce” (2:0; 1:2).
Zenit arrived in Skopje without Oleg Shatov and Luis Paredes. Also was in St. Petersburg, Alexander Anyukov, Luis Neto and Ivan Novoseltsev. The game “white-blue” in the attack recently is not very happy. Two consecutive zero draw with “Rostov” and “Dynamo” – is not something for which hired, Driussi, Rigoni and company. It should be corrected in the competition.
