  • GOAL! CIRO IMMOBILE STROKES LAZIO IN FRONT! 1-0! It's the best start Simone Inzaghi could ask for! His returning striker is fed a lovely short ball around the edge of the Zenit box and, despite three defenders closing in on him, finds the space to lob a shot into the top-left corner past a gobsmacked Kerzhakov. Superb stuff from the hosts!

  • GOAL! MARCO PAROLO WITH AN ABSOLUTE THUNDERBOLT FOR LAZIO! 2-0! It's Correa who makes the dizzying run down that left edge again, cutting a more central path and holding up the defence - but it is his captain who takes the backpass and hammers a low finish into the bottom-left corner from distance, snaking between two defenders on its way. Lazio are well in control now!

  • Rakitskiy seemed to ghost around two defenders there. That feels like an almighty switch-off from Lazio, but to be truthful, they haven't been seriously tested in this match. They'll be less than impressed with that one. Game firmly back on.

  • On the back of the first change of the game, the first booking arrives for Zenit now too as Barrios cuts down Correa cheaply on the break. The Lazio man has proved hard to touch so far.

  • It's an early booking for Lovren however, as Correa once again threatens to make a mockery of the Zenit defence with a run. The ex-Liverpool man looks to have made minimal contact on the whole, and he's not happy about the decision.

  • GOAL! CIRO IMMOBILE FIRES HOME FROM THE SPOT! 3-1! That could well be the game for the hosts - and could just be the goal that sends Zenit back to Russia facing the Europa League or nothing. The striker strokes a lovely effort to the left; Kerzhakov goes the right way but can't get a touch on it to deflect it away. The Serie A side are back in control.
