CSKA Moscow rolls to easy win

Eighteen year-old Russia capped Alan Dzagoev stole the show today as CSKA Moscow rolled to a comfortable 3-0 victory over La Liga's Deportivo La Coruña at Luzhniki Stadium.

The match was never in doubt as the teen phenom continued on his goal-scoring spree with a perfectly place free-kick only nine minutes into the match. Only three minutes later he had his second of the night when Vágner Love centered to the young striker parked in point-blank range. However the Spanish club would not go down without a fight and just before the half a Cristian Idalgo called upon Igor Akinfeev but as we have come to expect, the Russian number 1 is up for any challenge and dealt with the threat. Six minutes after the break Vágner Love added his name to score-sheet as he pounced on Sergei Ignashevich's header across the goal mouth. Deportivo threatened late but once again Igor Akinfeev denied them and the match concluded 3-0 in favour of CSKA Moscow.

CSKA Moscow returns to action in a great showdown next Monday against Dynamo Moscow.
