Massimiliano Allegri’s side has a perfect nine points from the first three matches and can secure a place in the knockout phase at Zenit early next month.
After their second defeat in the Champions League season, Russian champion Zenit is third in the group with three points, three behind second-placed Chelsea.
Before the game, Zenit fans put on a grand show in celebration of Peter the Great and the birth of the Russian Empire in 1721, but the hosts’ style of play was far from expansive.
Sergei Semak’s team were content to stop Juve and try to switch roles for the Italians after their stubborn win over Chelsea last time at halftime.
Zenit against Juventus: Weston McKennie should have given the visiting team the lead five minutes after the break when he failed to beat Stanislav Kritsyuk after slipping brilliantly through Alvaro Morata‘s goal.
McKennie missed his second good chance of the night with 16 minutes remaining when he launched a header from a cross from De Sciglio.
But Kulusevski did better than his American teammate as he took his own header off the post to smash a hitherto unlikely win.
