Army men in search of their best form
The game was of huge importance for CSKA. The Army men had already suffered a few disappointing defeats despite a better performance this season, and couldn't afford to drop any more points to the lower ranks.
And it didn't take them too much afford to beat a club of average ambitions.
4-1 was the final score, but despite a comprehensive win for CSKA, it was CSKA's goalie Konstantin Barulin who was named man of the match.
