AN IMMENSE Christian Abbiati brought Milan the three points from the Petrovsky Stadium in Russia against Luciano Spalletti’s FC Zenit St. Petersburg. Milan started the game very well as they found the back of the net 13 minutes in, as Urby Emanuelson’s free kick took a deflection and beat Zenit’s goalkeeper Vyacheslav Malafeev. Three minutes later, Stephan El Shaarawy scored an amazing solo goal, beating a goalkeeper for the fifth time in the last three games. After El Shaarawy’s goal, Zenit took control of the game and got fantastic saves out of Abbiati (finished the game with an amazing stat of 10 key saves). At the end of the first half, Hulk beat Abbiati after Cristian Zapata failed to stop him (45+2′). Four minutes into the second half, Zenit found the equalizer through veteran striker Roman Shirokov (49′). Zenit pushed hard to get the third and in the end, another Zenit player scored but luckily for Milan, it was to his own net as Tomás Hubocan brought the lead back to the Rossoneri with an own goal (75′). Milan were not very impressive but got a very important win at a tough country and stadium.
