MOSCOW (AP) Hulk scored as Zenit St. Petersburg bounced back from two goals down to draw 2-2 with leader CSKA Moscow in the Russian Premier League on Saturday.
CSKA went ahead through an own goal from Nicolas Lombaerts and Seydou Doumbia's header before a penalty from Hulk reduced the deficit. Zenit full-back Igor Smolnikov sped into the box to score Zenit's 88th-minute equalizer.
The draw is a morale-booster for a Zenit team that has been in turmoil, keeping the St. Petersburg side within six points of the top of the table.
Coach Andre Villas-Boas, who said Thursday he will leave Zenit at the end of the season, watched from a box at Arena Khimki as he served the first game of a six-match ban for striking an official in the chest.
