Russia failed to finish off their 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying Group F campaign with a victory but the point in Baku nevertheless sealed their progress to next summer's finals in Brazil as section winners.

Knowing a draw was all that was required to ensure their place at the showpiece, Fabio Capello's men appeared to be taking no chances when captain Roman Shirokov struck 16 minutes in to give the visitors the lead. The result looked secure when Maksim Medvedev saw red for the hosts after the break, but Azerbaijan dug deep to snatch a late equaliser through Vagif Javadov. Even so, it was not enough to prevent Russia taking the group by a point from Portugal.
