Zenit St. Petersburg overcame Rui Vitória’s Spartak Moscow with a rout by 7-1, in a game of the 12th round of the Russian league.
A result that goes down in history and could precipitate the already announced departure of the Portuguese coach from the Moscow team, which occupies a modest seventh place, with a negative goal difference (14 scored, 17 conceded).
The rout only began to take shape after 20 minutes, with the first goal, signed by Azmoun, but the difference at half-time was already 4-0, with goals from Claudinho (28m), another one from Azmoun /36m) and another from Mostovoy (45m).
Spartak even reduced the difference in the second half, with a goal from Quincy Promes, but the Saint Petersburg team’s festival continued soon after with another goal from Mostovoy (56m).
Life was already complicated for Rui Vitória and more complicated was Caufriez’s expulsion, at 79 minutes, for accumulation of yellow cards, in a move that allowed Dzyuba, from the eleven meters mark, to make the 6-1. A result that was only closed with two minutes to go with a goal by Yerokhin to equal a result also historic in the Portuguese championship.
