Musa scores 10th goal as Ideye hits brace
Super Eagles winger, Ahmed Musa, scored his 10th goal in Russia as CSKA Moscow fought back to salvage a 2-2 draw at home with Moscow city rivals Spartak.
He dedicated Sunday's goal to his sister, who passed away recently.
Spartak were without Musa’s Eagles teammate, Emmanuel Emenike, who is still out injured since the 2013 AFCON.
CSKA had to come from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with Ahmed Musa leading his club’s revival with the first goal in the 73rd minute, before Dzagoev scored on the dot of regulation time to end the goal 2-2.
CSKA Moscow still lead the Russia Premier League table with 57 points from 25 games, while Spartak are fifth on the table on 41 points.
"That is football, we wanted to win to extend our lead on the table. We are happy with the point at least it is better than to lose. This game is over, but we will work harder to get victories in the subsequent games," Musa observed Sunday.
Another of Musa’s teammate in the Eagles, Brown Ideye scored twice for Dynamo Kiev to win 5-0 at Zorya and move up to second place on the Ukrainian league table.
Dynamo now have 53 points from 25 matches, but are 16 points adrift of leaders Shakhtar Donetsk, who played late Sunday night.
Ideye scored Dynamo’s second goal in the 38th minute and he completed his brace when he scored his team's third goal of the game in the 81st minute.
Fellow Nigeria stars, Taye Taiwo and Lukman Haruna, were also in action for Dynamo.
In Spain, former Nigeria youth international Macauley Chrisantus returned to scoring way when he hit a brace to give Las Palmas a 2-1 win at Xerez.
The former Eaglets star’s goals mean Las Palmas now have 58 points from 35 games and are in contention for promotion play-off spot.
In Holland, former Nigeria U20 international Uche Nwofor returned to scoring way as he helped his team VVV Venlo secure a 2-2 draw at home to FC Twente.
Nwofor gave his side a 2-0 lead only for them to later surrender the lead.
