ZENIT SAINT PETERSBURG XI
It’s three changes for Zenit after their weekend win over Akhmat Grozny. Sergei Semak adds some South American spice to his selection with the inclusion of Brazilians Malcom and Claudinho on either flank, the latter making his first ever appearance in the Champions League. Out go Andrei Mostovoy and Aleksandr Erokhin, and also Artem Dzyuba. The lumbering striker drops to the bench in favour of a holding midfielder in the form of Colombian Wilmar Barrios. Douglas Santos skippers the side from left-back, Iranian Sadrdar Azmoun leads the line.
1 Kritsyuk; 19 Sutormin, 2 Chistiakov, 44 Rakits’kyy, 3 Douglas Santos; 10 Malcom, 8 Wendel, 5 Barrios, 14 Kuzyaev, 11 Claudinho; 7 Azmoun
