Seydou Doumbia scored a rebound for CSKA Moscow as the Russian side were held to a 1-1 draw against Manchester United
Anthony Martial was penalised for a handball in the first half before David de Gea saved Roman Eremenko's spot kick, only for Ivorian forward Seydou Doumbia to tuck home the rebound. However, Martial would atone for his earlier error shortly after the hour mark when he stooped to nod Antonio Valencia's cross in off the post.
The game wasn't the best in all honesty, and neither side can really say that they did enough to win the match on the night. CSKA were certainly the more dangerous of the two sides in the first half, with the likes of Doumbia, Ahmed Musa looking threatening every time they got the ball.

In the second half, CSKA were never really able to get going. Of the course of the 90 minutes they came close through Eremenko and Musa, in addition to the goal, but aside from that they struggled to pose a serious threat to De Gea's goal
The result leaves both sides tied on 4 points with Wolfsburg on top with 6 points.
