CSKA make pressure tell

KF Tirana 0-2 PFC CSKA Sofia Two goals in the last two minutes leave Tirana needing another comeback.

PFC CSKA Sofia were grateful for two late goals as they chiselled out a vital UEFA Champions League second qualifying round lead at Albanian title-holders KF Tirana.

Comeback needed
Tirana won 3-0 here last week to overturn a 2-0 deficit against NK Gorica. And having so nearly held out against their strong Bulgarian visitors, they will need to pull off a similar comeback in Sofia next Wednesday.

Gueye strikes
CSKA had the better of the first half, but created relatively few chances. Although Devis Mukaj and Hamdi Salihi had their moments in the second half for Tirana, the home team were caught out a minute from time as Ibrahima Gueye struck.

Gargorov goal
In added time Emil Gargorov made it 2-0, and CSKA will be more than happy ahead of both Friday's third qualifying round draw and next week's rematch.
