AUSTRIA WIEN AND ZENIT DRAW AT PETROVSKY

Published: October 2, 2013 (Issue # 1780)


St. Petersburg’s FC Zenit played an at home draw against FK Austria Wien on Tuesday in the second match of the group stage of the Champions League, Interfax reported. The meeting at Petrovsky stadium ended with a score of 0-0, with Zenith spending more than half of the match in the minority and Axel Witsel being sent off a minute before the break.

As a result of last night’s match, FK Austria Wien gained their first points in UEFA Champions League Group G.

The Visitors made no secret of their joy after the match, having played 45 minutes in the majority even though an away draw was not exactly the hoped for outcome.

"We are happy that we return to Vienna with one point,” said Austria’s Lindner. “We played great defense, so I did not have a lot of work to do.”

Zenit and Austria currently each have one point in the UEFA Champions League Group G.
