Sensational Zenit, disappointing Bayern

Latest update : 2008-04-14

Zenit St. Petersburg ran riot at Bayer Leverkusen, scoring four times against the hapless hosts. Elsewhere, a last minute goal earned Getafe a precious draw away to Bayern Munich, while the other two games also ended in draws.

A late Cosmin Contra goal earned Getafe a 1-1 draw at Bayern Munich on Thursday to give the Madrid side hope of reaching the UEFA Cup semi-finals in their debut European season.
 

Romanian Contra clipped a close-range shot over a prone Oliver Kahn in the last minute to stun Bayern, four-times European champions and winners of the UEFA Cup in 1996, who had spurned a host of chances at the Allianz Arena.
 

Italian Luca Toni's eighth goal of the UEFA Cup campaign, a header from a corner, had put the Bundesliga leaders and competition favourites ahead on 26 minutes.
 

On a disappointing night for Bundesliga teams, Bayer Leverkusen were routed 4-1 at home by Russian champions Zenit St. Petersburg who put one foot firmly in the last four with a superb counter-attacking display.
 

Striker Andre Arshavin scored a fine opener and created the second for Pavel Pogrebnyak early in the second half after Stefan Kiessling had equalised. Two goals in the space of three minutes from Aleksandr Anyukov and Igor Denisov completed a memorable win.
 

The remaining ties are evenly poised. Fiorentina were held to a 1-1 draw at home by PSV Eindhoven after Danny Koevermans snared an away goal for the Dutch side following Adrian Mutu's opener.
 

In Glasgow, a bad-tempered clash at Ibrox ended goalless between Rangers and Sporting.
