Half-Time Report: Arytom Dzyuba hands Zenit St Petersburg advantage

Artyom Dzyuba's early strike gives Zenit St Petersburg a 1-0 half-time lead over Lyon in their Champions League tie.

Artyom Dzyuba's early goal has given Zenit St Petersburg a slender 1-0 lead at half time over Lyon in their Champions League Group H game.

Zenit pounced on a third-minute mistake by Christophe Jallet to go ahead, as Dzyuba coolly finished Oleg Shatov's precise through-ball from 18 yards out.

The visitors almost levelled midway through the half as Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa sent a powerful volley towards goal, but Mikhail Kerzhakov kept it out.

Dzyuba then scuffed a shot over the bar under pressure before Anthony Lopes tipped a strong Hulk strike wide.
