Zenit opened their 2010-11 Europa League campaign with a 3-1 away win at Anderlecht, thanks to a first-half hat trick from Russian striker Aleksandr Kerzhakov.

Back in September 2010, Anderlecht and Zenit St Petersburg met on matchday one of the Europa League group stage and Zenit took home the three points.

Aleksandr Kerzhakov put the Russian club ahead after eight minutes before completing his hat-trick in the first half with goals in the 33rd and 44th minutes. The home side were unable to fight back in the second half and Roland Juhasz's consolation in the 66th minute meant the match finished 1-3. 

Both teams qualified for the knockout stages, Zenit with a maximum 18 points, but they did not get much further. Anderlecht lost to Ajax in the last 32 while Zenit were defeated by Twente in the last 16.
