However, it is worth making a reservation here that this goal did not quite flow out of the game. «Leipzig» had a greater advantage and somewhat dangerous approaches. But the situation «zenita» worsened in the second half, after the hellisman made a couple of tactical rearrangements. The second half of the match can be confidently to put in the piggy bank of the germans.
St. Petersburg men looked slightly uncomfortable, they seemed to miss the audacity. Fully failed the match of sebastian drussi, because of which the first goal was missing, and the argentine himself received the lowest score among the players «zenita».
Lack of aggression in actions noted and players after the match. So, vyacheslav karavaev after the game admittedly, which is very upset by the result, and suggested that there was not enough concentration and keenness. What has not yet been enough to ward semak, so these are accuracy in transmissions. «Rb leipzig» played with a high line of defense, which could be easily overcome in case of accurate cast, but it was not.
This is noted by the hellisman himself. In his opinion, they often risked and they were lucky that «zenith» did not take advantage of errors, and their transmissions did not have enough accuracy. As a result, petrights lost with a score of 1: 2. Despite the defeat, the wards sematic have a good chance of accessing in the playoffs and now occupy the second place.
