From the street, the flare salute gave the landscape a red tinge, leading one fan to comment: "Welcome to hell."

The display preceded Zenit's 3-1 victory over Fenerbahce in Saint Petersburg on Thursday night.

An early goal from Magomed Ozdoyev and a brace from Sardar Azmoun saw the club to a 3-2 aggregate victory and into the Europa League round of 16.
