You're reading: Russia’s Zenit miss Witsel and Criscito for Malaga clash

ST. PETERSBURG - Zenit St Petersburg will be without several key players, including newly-signed Belgium midfielder Axel Witsel, for Tuesday's Champions League clash at Malaga.

Witsel, who joined the Russian champions for 40 million
euros ($52.59 million) from Benfica just before the Sept. 3 transfer
deadline, has pulled a hamstring in training, a Zenit spokesman said on
Monday, Sept. 17.

Italy left back Domenico Criscito, Russia midfielder Sergei Semak and Portugal international Danny will also miss the Group C opener in Spain.

Zenit’s other high-profile acquisition, Brazil striker Hulk, is fit and should make his Champions League debut for the Russian club.

AC Milan host Belgian champions Anderlecht in the other Group C match on Tuesday, Sept. 18.
