Zenit St. Petersburg's progression seems all but secure already at the half-way point of their tie against Pacos Ferreira after they claimed a 4-1 aggregate lead from the first leg in Portugal.

Roman Shirokov netted a hat trick, with his second goal coming two minutes after Andre Leao's volleyed equaliser.

Zenit's third came through an own-goal by goalkeeper Matias Degra and Shirokov wrapped up his treble in the final moments.
