Zenit St Petersburg missed a golden opportunity to almost guarantee qualification from Group A as Nurnberg recorded their first point in the group stages via a 2-2 draw.

Angelos Charisteas gave the visitors a surprise first-half lead before two goals in three second-half minutes from Pavel Pogrebniak and Aleksei Ionov put Zenit in front.

But Leon Benko headed Nurnberg level just minutes later.
