Behind after four minutes, PFC CSKA Moskva recovered to beat FC Viktoria Plzeň and register their first points in UEFA Champions League Group D.
The scene was set for an away victory when František Rajtoral swept the Czech title holders into an early lead. However, Zoran Tošić ended CSKA's six-and-a-half hour wait for a goal in all competitions 15 minutes later, paving the way for Keisuke Honda to cutely put the Russian champions ahead.
The lads deserve respect that they managed to turn the game around when their nerves had gone. We won and I'm extremely happy with that.
Leonid Slutski, CSKA coach
I praise the efforts of my players in the second half but tonight we made it hard for ourselves. The situation we are in now is very difficult.
Pavel Vrba, Plzeň coach
