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.

Match in 5

  • CSKA earn first Group D victory to end four-game winless run
  • Rajtoral gets Plzeň off to a flier
  • Tošić and exquisite Honda finish gives hosts half-time lead
  • Řezník own goal proves decisive despite late Bakoš strike
  • CSKA host City next, Plzeň play Bayern

Reaction

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.

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.

    The final whistle is blown.
  • Goal
    90+1
    Bakoš (Plzeň) scores!
    The visitors pull a goal back! A cross from the right is punched by Igor Akinfeev into the path of Stanislav Tecl. The ball rebounds off the striker and loops towards goal for Marek Bakoš to head in. Do Plzeň have enough time to get an equaliser?

    Řezník (Plzeň) scores an own goal.
    A heartbreaking moment for Plzeň! CSKA's Ahmed Musa intercepts the ball, but Radim Řezník does well to recover and plays a pass back to Matúš Kozáčik. The keeper completely misjudges the ball, and it ends up in the back of the net!
