Zenit St. Petersburg were too strong for Valencia last night as they marched to a fifth win in as many UEFA Champions League group matches, confirming their place at the top of Group H.
Los Che never looked like challenging in Russia, and went down early thanks to a delightful finish from Oleg Shatov.
Artem Dzyuba wrapped up all three points in the second half as he converted a wonderful team move, while Valencia’s woes were compounded by a late red card for Ruben Vezo.
In a related development, Admir Mehmedi was on target to salvage a point for Bayer Leverkusen as they came back to draw 1-1 with BATE Borisov last night.
The forward found the net halfway through the second half to cancel out Mikhail Gordeychuk’s early goal and ensure the Bundesliga side earned a share of the spoils.
The draw keeps Leverkusen level on points with second-placed Roma, who were facing Barcelona in the other Group E encounter at press time last night.
