Chelsea’s win puts Zenit in the third basket of the Champions League

Petersburgers will find it harder to score points in Europe.

Sad news for Zenit. The champion of Russia for the first time in a long time will not be able to get into the first basket.

Such an alignment would have happened if Manchester City won. Now Zenit has fallen into the third basket. A team can have two top clubs as opponents.

Zenit managed to score one point in six matches in the last Champions League. A year earlier, the club also finished last.
