Zenit drop points, Rubin and CSKA forget to score Russian league leaders Zenit St. Petersburg were held to a surprising 3-3 draw at Anzhi Makhachkala on Sunday while Rubin Kazan drew 0-0 at CSKA Moskva.

Konstantin Zyrianov then made it 1-2 shortly before the break, and Danny netted his second for 1-3 four minutes after the hour.

While Zenit were practically certain of adding another three points to their account, Nicolae Josan pulled one back in the 81st minute to give the home side new hope.
