Zenit St. Petersburg Vs. CSKA Moscow: Slower Second Half Leads To A 1-1 Draw

Zenit St. Petersburg and CSKA Moscow didn't exactly come out in the second half with the same fight and energy as they had in the first, eventually playing to a 1-1 draw. Both teams got a few shots on target, but neither looked nearly as dangerous and determined in the first half, while both goalkeepers played well. In only the fourth week of the Russian Premier League season, with both teams undefeated, they will likely both be content with a draw.

Both Zenit and CSKA looked like talented, balanced, and tactically adept sides on the afternoon, despite the fact that they were both willing to take a draw in the second half. There's no reason to believe that these teams won't both be in Champions League places at the end of the season, and they should both contend for the RPL title. CSKA has a tough match next week against Rubin Kazan, while Zenit goes away to FK Amkar Perm.
