Zenit wins test match against Schalke
What do Zenit Saint Petersburg and Schalke 04 have in common? GAZPROM as a strong partner on their side! That’s why in the recent international break, GAZPROM Germania initiated a friendly match between the two clubs.
Last Sunday (18 Nov), more than 40,000 fans in the Saint Petersburg Stadium witnessed a lively game in which the hosts made the better start when Matias Kranevitter put his team ahead after five minutes. Subsequently, however, Schalke gained some momentum and Steven Skrzybski eventually tied the score shortly before the break.
The second half saw the blue-white-sky blues as the lucky winners: After Sebastian Driussi’s penalty was denied by Schalke’s keeper Ralf Fährmann, Magomed Ozdoyev converted the rebound to make it 2-1.
Visitors of the GAZPROM Football website were able to see the game via livestream. For everyone who had missed it, German television channel SPORT1 showed the match highlights later in the evening.
