Zenit dominated for much of the match but Eto'o's goal on 61 minutes, combined with some notable saves by Anzhi goalkeeper Vladimir Gabulov helped Guus Hiddink's team prevail.

Anzhi will play CSKA Moscow, who beat Rostov 2-0 on Tuesday, in the final on June 1 in Grozny, capital of the Chechnya region.
