Ahmed Musa scores brace in CSKA’s incredible fight back against Mordovia


Ahmed Musa scored twice for CSKA Moscow, who came from a 3-0 first half deficit, to beat Mordovia Saransk 6-4 in the Russian Premier League on Sunday.

The league leaders were reduced to 10 men early on, following a 12th minute sending off of Brazilian defender Mario Fernandes.
The hosts had taken a first minute lead via Evgeniy Lutsenko and immediately added to their tally after Fernandes’ sending off via Vladimir Vykov and Ruslan Mukhametsin to finish the first period in the ascendancy.
However, the Army team soon clawed their way back at the restart with goals from Kirill Panchenko, Zoran Tosic and Seydou Doumbia with a Musa assist in the space of ten minutes after Mordovia’s midfielder Yannick Djalo received a second booking.
The hosts recovered from the shock soon after as Lutshenko scored his second to make it 4-3 but Musa equalized in the 80th minute, assisted by Doumbia and doubled his tally to make the scores 4-5 five minutes later.
The visitors then cemented their win with a Doumbia goal two minutes before full time.
Musa has now scored five goals in the league and a total of eight in all competitions this season, as CSKA maintain their lead with 25 points on top of the table.
