Half-Time Report: CSKA Moscow outclassing PSV Eindhoven

CSKA Moscow lead PSV Eindhoven 3-0 at half time in their Champions League clash.

A brace from Seydou Doumbia has set CSKA Moscow on their way to victory over Champions League Group B rivals PSV Eindhoven as the Russian side lead their Dutch opponents 3-0 at half time.

Jurgen Locadia almost latched on to Maxime Lestienne's tantalising early cross inside the opening five minutes as the visitors began brightly.

However, CSKA were ahead on seven minutes when Ahmed Musa lashed home Zoran Tosic's cross from the right wing.

Davy Proepper lashed a 25-yard strike inches over the top of goal and Lestienne curled an effort just wide as Phillip Cocu's side looked to respond, but they soon found themselves two behind.

It was Doumbia - who had spurned a golden opportunity just two minutes earlier, firing over from close range - who doubled the lead with a smart header from Mario Fernandes's cross on 21 minutes.

Doumbia blew another chance to put the game to bed when he failed to punish Hector Moreno's error, but he made no mistake from the penalty spot just after the half-hour mark after Jeroen Zoet had sent Tosic tumbling in the box.

Musa almost made it four when curled an effort just beyond Zoet's upright, and Doumbia could have had a first-half hat-trick, but he blazed his second spot kick of the evening over the top just before the break.
