We remember the legendary victory in St. Petersburg.
On Thursday, May 25, Zenit turned 98 years old. The date, although not round, is no less important for that. After all, the club celebrates its birthday against the background of the fifth championship in a row. And the second star on the emblem. Therefore, it was necessary to come up with something special. And it worked.
First, the Club published a congratulatory post on the Telegram channel, where the key idea of u200bu200bthe celebration is indicated in the title: “98 years brighter than the stars.” This term will be used over and over again for various reasons. He then announced the opening of a media showcase at New Holland. And then he released a two-minute video. Naturally, with plenty of Easter eggs.
We deal with the main references, some of which refer to the present and are associated with Spartak.
The first scene was filmed at the Leningrad Metallurgical Plant – that’s where Zenit was born. And the dancer in the club shirt of the 1980s symbolizes the first championship won in the USSR championship in 1984.
Already the next dancer in the form of the sample of 2007 personifies the second championship. And Peter I, played by Alexander Erokhin, is here for a reason. This is a symbol of the connection between Saint Petersburg and the Netherlands. After all, it was Dick Advocaat who was in charge at the time of winning the first championship in Russian history.
Here we remember how Zenit won the UEFA Cup:
“The lawyer took Arshavin by the button and took it away.” New details of the path “Zenith” to the UEFA Cup
The scene in the gallery with the grandmother showing the Arshavin gesture is a clear reference to Andrey, who participated in several championship titles as a player and now as a coach. Some kind of temporary connection.
Then the plot jumps to the ship – this is the transition to the first championship under Semak, when the championship parade was held on the ship. The flying plane is a reminder that Zenit learned about winning the sixth championship title in the air on the way from Grozny. And Mantuan coming out of the hold is a symbol of his successful substitutions.
Then Mateo Cassierra flies into the frame, playing dominoes in the Peter and Paul Fortress. They filmed the striker’s presentation. The receiver on the table is the same as in the first video.
This is followed by the most striking scene: a ballerina on a sports ground and a banner reading “Divide the diamond by seven” flashes in the frame – a reference to the victory over Spartak with a score of 7: 1 in October 2021. Petersburg remembered this moment well. And from that moment on, on any suitable occasion, they remember him.
Spartak now has other problems: what will happen to Sobolev next?
The story of Sobolev’s ban and Roshi’s “forgiveness” is not over yet. What will happen next
And the last scene of the plot: Ivan Sergeev is fishing on the spit on Vasilyevsky Island overlooking Petropavlovka. It was there that he finished the colorful celebration of the fifth championship with the city. With fireworks and without Fan ID.
Sergeev is Zenit’s savior this season:
Sergeev saved Zenit, as in the game with Spartak! Orenburg almost took revenge on the leader by 0:8
