Roberto Alvarez-Galloso@AlvarezGallosoChief Writer IOctober 16, 2011

FC Dynamo Moscow and FC Zenit St. Petersburg faced each other at Petrovsky Stadium located at St. Petersburg, Russia. The result was not as expected from two major members of the Russian Premier League.

The teams attempted to dominate the match, several goal scoring opportunities created. FC Zenit St. Petersburg was able to kick the ball towards the penalty box of FC Dynamo Moscow.

FC Zenit St. Petersburg was unable to use its dominance around the penalty box to score a goal. Luciano Spalletti (FC Zenit St. Petersburg coach) attributed this to his players moving too fast in the attempt to score.

Spalletti recognized that FC Dynamo Moscow also had two or three opportunities to score goals. FC Dynamo Moscow was unable to capitalize on the opportunities.

The two side suffered injuries during the second half when Aleksandr Anykov (FC Zenit St Petersburg) collided with Kevin Kuranyi (FC Dynamo Moscow striker). The result was an injury under the knee for Anykov.

Aleksandar Lukovic replaced Anykov and was able to take the ball towards the right side of the field. Lukovic attempted to attack the FC Dynamo Moscow goal post from the right side without any success.

The result was a scoreless draw, meaning Zenit St. Petersburg was able to remain in first place in the Russian Premier League.

The reason was the 2-2 draw between CSKA Moscow and Terek Grozny in their Russian League match.
