Athletistic/Football. On Saturday, May 11, several of the most important matches of the 28th round of the RPL took place. In one of them, Zenit and CSKA met. The teams met in St. Petersburg at the Gazprom Arena stadium. Zenit continues to fight for the title. It was therefore important for him to take three points in this match. CSKA has already lost its chances of reaching the top places. However, the team tried to play well.

The first half was scoreless. The highlight was the episode when, after Wendel’s shot, Ivan Oblyakov cleared the ball from the CSKA goal line.
In the second half, the army team managed to take the lead. After Mateo Cassierra’s foul on Ilya Agapov, a penalty was awarded to the Army team. Fedor Chalov coolly converted the kick from 11 yards.
At the end of the match, Zenit tried to equalize the score. However, they failed to score a goal. In particular, young CSKA goalkeeper Vladislav Torop made several decent saves.
Thus, CSKA won with a score of 1:0. This is the Red and Blue’s first victory against Zenit away from home since April 2011. Zenit fell to second place in the RPL table after Dynamo’s victory over Baltika (3:2). CSKA is in sixth place.
Zenit fans reacted to their team’s defeat. They left their comments in the official community on VKontakte.
Nicholas Baranov:
– It’s time for the club management to think about Semak’s candidacy, how many coaching defeats are there already?
The team made no progress, as they started the first season with Semak with awnings and returned to them. It’s terrible to see the team play.
Nikolai Yakovlev:
– The season can be considered over. And Semak must be fired.
Zenit Saint Petersburg:
– I have always defended Semak, but now I will say it for the first time. Semak, go away yourself, now it will be the best thing. It can’t be worse.
Sinko Umi:
– We lose to a dead CSKA on our own turf, well, Semak, well, a genius. And by the way, what does our standards coach, Tymoshchuk, do? How many corners are there, but the result is zero.
Maxim Shinkarev:
– The last matches, like today, can be described in one word: shameful.
Sergei Bogdanovich, either change something, or it’s time to say goodbye!
