General Game Stats Chart


Minute   Description
90' Hulk gets yellow.
Well, Hulk's night is topped off with a yellow card for diving inside the area, completely feigning a challenge of any sort from Malaga centre-back Weligton. Deserved.
89' The ball bumps off Hulk's backheel and, once again, Zenit lose possession in an attack without necessarily needing to.
88' Bruno Alves hoofs the ball into the box from the halfway line but Kerzhakov gestures in frustration when it's too high for him to leap and head.
86' M. Lumb enters the game and replaces R. Shirokov.
Another chance for a fourth goal for Malaga, this time Eliseu lofts his cross from the right for the back post, where substitute Duda is waiting but his downward header is tipped over the bar after bouncing over Malafeev's head and threatening to dip under the bar on its way back down.
85' Duda enters the game and replaces Joaquín.
Joaquin comes off for Duda in Malaga's final change of the night.
83' Oh my, Malaga nearly scored a fourth! Los Boquerones attacked down the right but the ball in from Eliseu was saved after a very unordinary and half-hearted shot from Joaquin. The ball is loose for a second but Malafeev quickly rolls over and pounced before an opposition player can knock it in from one yard out.
82' Russia are resorting to long balls, something they've resisted for most of the match to their credit (or detriment, perhaps).
81' Hulk has not had a happy return to the south-west of Europe has he?! The forward has been uncomfortable in possession and, except for that early strike against the crossbar, has been increasingly quiet in attacks.
79' The crowd are in full voice now, singing away because they know it would be implausible for the Russian club to catch them in this final 11 minutes.
76' Isco has scored a goal for Málaga! Assist by Joaquín.
Zenit make a second sub, bringing off Konstantin Zyryanov for Luka Dordevic.
GOAL!! Isco scores again!! The attacker has been in superb form all night and he adds to his earlier goal with a cracking strike on his right foot 20 yards from goal. He picks up a pass from Joaquin on hisleft with his first touch then thunders it into the top right-hand corner with his second. The visitors are surely out of this clash now! Malaga 3-0 Zenit St Petersburg!
