After weeks of preparations and an intense Gazprom Training Camp in Austria FC Zenit has successfully started off their Russian Premier 2018/19 season. Two wins right to the start allowed the team from coach Sergei Semak to gain a spot in the upper parts of the table early on in order to achieve their season goal: Defending the title!

On international stage, the club has even more ambitious intentions: After a long drought of three years FC Zenit has finally returned to the UEFA Champions League and will therefore be able to host the best teams in Europe in the GAZPROM Arena.

Thus, everyone has their eyes on Nyon, where the UCL group stage draw will take place on August 29th. Entering the competition as Russian Champions FC Zenit will even be part of the draw as a top seated team.

Let’s see!
