Zenit supporters held in Villarreal jail

Three Zenit St. Petersburg supporters were held without bail after being arrested inside El Madrigal in the second leg of their UEFA Cup matchup. Also, the club has sent a request to UEFA that Zenit be forced to pay Villarreal for damage caused to the stadium by visiting fans at the match. Villarreal only expected about 150 supporters from Russia, but there were over 900 in the stands, and the group apparently tore out stadium chairs and caused other damage.
