The Nigerian got his side’s curtain raiser as
they marched past the canon in Wednesday’s
Champions League game at the Arena Khimki
Nigeria’s Ahmed Musa recorded his name on
the scorers’ sheet in CSKA Moscow 3-2 defeat
of PSV Eindhoven in a Uefa Champions League
game played at the Arena Khimki on Wednesday
The game which was Leonid Slutsky side’s first
win in the competition saw the former Kano
Pillars forward net the first goal of the encounter
in the eighth minute.
They fell behind in when Zoran Tosic’s
inswinging corner from the right was allowed to
drop to the feet of Musa , who turned the ball
into the net after reacting faster than any of the
PSV players around him.
CSKA doubled their advantage when Doumbia
finished off Mario Fernandes’ perfect right-wing
cross, his looping header going up and over the
outstretched right arm of Jeroen Zoet in the
Doumbia’s second of the game came from the
spot, Zoet being sent the wrong way after he
had conceded the foul by halting Tosic’s charge
towards goal with an ill-timed lunge.
Nevertheless, Phillip Cocu’s men very nearly
turned the result around with a valiant second-
half fightback led by Maxime Lestienne, who
netted a pair of goals of his own.
The result, coupled with Manchester United
triumphing 2-1 at home to Wolfsburg, means all
four teams in Group B now have three points to
CSKA Moscow host Manchester United in their
next game of the competition.
