PFC CSKA Moskva eased to a 5-1 victory against FC Lausanne-Sport that confirmed the already-qualified Russian club as the winners of Group F.
The Army Men had scored three times in each of their previous four group outings, and took just 40 minutes to reach that figure tonight as Tomáš Necid, Sekou Oliseh and Zoran Tošić all found the net. Alan Dzagoev and Necid did likewise in the second half, making CSKA the competition's 17-goal leading scorers, before Abdul Carrupt's belated reply for Lausanne.
CSKA may have already been through, but they looked determined to put on a show at the Arena Khimki. Necid sounded a warning about what was to come in the 14th minute when connecting with Oliseh's chipped pass and fizzing a first-time volley just over.
The pair combined for the opener soon after, Necid drifting in between two defenders to nod Oliseh's pass beyond Mickael Castejon. Dzagoev smacked a shot against the bar before that strike, and Tošić should have doubled the advantage afterwards, before Oliseh did just that. Picked out by Dzagoev's raking pass from deep, the Liberian raced clear and into the Lausanne box where he sold Castejon a dummy before rolling the ball into the empty net.
The keeper produced a terrific fingertip save on to the post to deny Georgi Schennikov in the 27th minute, but was again exposed five minutes before half-time as Tošić burst through two challenges and finished with his left foot. Tošić became the third player to hit the woodwork with a rising shot in the 54th minute, yet a fourth goal was always on the cards and Dzagoev supplied it after 71 minutes. Necid's second, another close-range header, in the 82nd minute made it five before Lausanne substitute Carrupt pulled a goal back in added time, controlling a free-kick on his chest before firing low past Igor Akinfeev.
