Jokerit start well
Jokerit had the better of the opening exchanges, but CSCA defended well, and the Finns found chances hard to come by. Mika Vãyrynen had Jokerit's best chance when he was picked out in the penalty area by Issaka Baba, but the youngster couldn't keep his volley down and the ball sailed harmlessly over the bar.

CSCA happy to counter
CSCA were content to play on the counter attack and they nearly added a vital away goal on the half hour but Ruslan Kostyshyn's venomous effort flying narrowly wide.

Zakarliukab settles nerves
However their nerves were settled when Serhii Zakarliuka got the first goal on the hour, hammering a long-range effort into the top corner. Olexander Kossyrin killed the game off with a second goal eight minutes from time.
