Ten-man AZ Alkmaar produced a battling performance to earn a point against Zenit St Petersburg in a bad-tempered 1-1 draw at the Petrovsky Stadium.

The Dutch side opened the scoring in the UEFA Cup Group A fixture through Ferreira Ari in the 20th minute, but the Brazilian was then sent off 19 minutes later.

Zenit equalised in the 43rd minute with a penalty from Anatoliy Tymoschuk but despite dominating the second half were unable to find a winning goal.
