CSKA starlet Dzagoev does for Deportivo

PFC CSKA Moskva 3-0 RC Deportivo La Coruña
Valeri Gazzaev's side made a fine start to Group H as two early goals from in-form teenager Alan Dzagoev put the 2005 winners out of Depor's reach.

PFC CSKA Moskva made a superb start to UEFA Cup Group H as two early goals from Alan Dzagoev sent them on their way to a comfortable victory at home to RC Deportivo La Coruña.

Early goals
Dzagoev has scored seven goals in his last seven Premier-Liga games for CSKA, earning a call-up to Guus Hiddink's Russia squad. And it took the 18-year-old only nine minutes to add to his rising stock when he smashed in a free-kick and swiftly added a second following good work by Vágner Love, who struck himself just past the hour.

Fast start
CSKA made their intent clear from the kick-off with two corners in as many minutes, the second producing a solid downward header from defender Vasili Berezutski which was held firmly by Depor keeper Daniel Aranzubia. Enter Dzagoev who, following a foul by Julian De Guzman on Deividas Šemberas, rifled the resulting free-kick into the top corner.

Second strike
Three minutes later Vágner Love got the better of Filipe and squared for Dzagoev to turn in. Deportivo finally came into the game and had a prolonged spell of possession close to half-time, threatening when a Cristian cross was clawed away by Igor Akinfeev with Omar Bravo lurking. Yet CSKA were back in the ascendant after the interval as Vágner Love continued to menace the visiting defence. A flicked header from Miloš Krasić's set-piece was punched wide by Aranzubia, the keeper then using his legs to stop another shot from the striker.

Clincher
But Vágner Love was not to be denied and made no mistake when Krasić's centre was headed back across goal by Sergei Ignashevich for the Brazilian to pounce from close range. Sergio González almost earned some consolation but his effort curled on to the outside of Akinfeev's post – it summed up Depor's night.
