Thus, the cast led by Tuchel attempted 11 shots throughout the game, only 2 of them between the posts of rival goalkeeper Kritsyuk. Kovacic, Jorginho, Marcos Alonso, Mount and company are the most important weapons in three quarters of the court for the “Blues” in their recent campaigns.
However, Romelu Lukaku brand new addition to the transfer market connected a center from the right side with a header to score the only goal of the English night. Few chances for Zenit looking for Brazilian Malcom and Wendel as attack pieces.
