CSKA cruise past Partizan

PFC CSKA Moskva 2-0 FK Partizan (agg: 3-1) Vágner Love converts an 85th-minute penalty to seal a convincing win.

Vágner Love converted an 85th-minute penalty to seal PFC CSKA Moskva's place in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Cup with a convincing win in Krasnodar.

Double dismissal
The spot-kick made it 2-0 on the night and left FK Partizan requiring two goals, which with nine men after the dismissals of Nenad Djordjevic and Ivan Tomic, was never very likely. Djordjevic was sent off for felling Carvalho to concede the penalty, which denied the midfield player a second goal following his 69th-minute opener.

Boya blow
Following the 1-1 draw in the first leg last week, Partizan knew they had to score but they were without Cameroonian striker Pierre Boya because of an ankle injury, while Saša Ilic was suspended. But it was in defence that the side had their most immediate worries.

Early effort
With less than a minute on the clock, CSKA's Ivica Olic forced Ivica Kralj into an early save. The 31-year-old goalkeeper was called upon again two minutes later, superbly keeping out a well-struck free-kick although he would have been powerless to deny Vágner Love had he directed the rebound on target.

Kralj heroics
CSKA would dominate the first half but without much luck. Vágner Love had another golden opportunity on 17 minutes but Kralj just managed to get a touch to the ball as the Brazilian striker attempted to round him before jumping back up to deny Olic on the rebound.

Ignashevich free-kick
Partizan's rare forays into the attacking third were constantly repelled by Aleksei Berezoutski and Sergei Ignashevich; permanent fixtures at striker Obiora Odita's side. Ignashevich almost enjoyed as much success in attack on 19 minutes when his free-kick nearly caught Kralj unawares.

Semberas save
Igor Akinfeev was largely redundant in the other goal, but was called upon six minutes before the interval, diving to save Simon Vukcevic's low, swerving drive. But he could only parry the ball into the path of Odita, who had briefly evaded his minders only to discover that Deividas Semberas had replaced them and his last-gasp intervention denied the Nigerian striker.

Vágner Love miss
Just before the interval Vágner Love could, and probably should, have given the home side the lead when he sprung the offside trap to collect Nenad Brnovic's carefully weighted pass. However, with only the goalkeeper to beat, he blasted his effort over.

Carvalho goal
The second period began disjointedly, with neither side able to dominate but, with 25 minutes remaining, Partizan finally began to commit players forward in search of an elusive away goal. Gaps immediately began appearing in their already fraught defence and on 69 minutes, Carvalho gave CSKA the lead, completing a rapid counterattack after being released by Vágner Love on the halfway line.

Nine men
The pair combined again five minutes later in a carbon copy of the goal but this time Carvalho was brought down by Djordjevic, who was promptly dismissed. Ten men became nine when Tomic followed him as Vágner Love celebrated an unconvincing spot-kick to seal his side's progress.
