In the second half Wendel’s time came as he scored twice in 27 minutes and earned his first ever RPL goals. Having taken the lead on the score sheet, Zenit also found themselves with a one-man advantage, when Evgeny Kukulyak showed a red card to Ilzat Akhmetov after a VAR review. The final word was spoken by Nikola Vlasic, who scored a penalty in  added time.
