CSKA Moscow 1-1 Real Madrid , Bad Luck for Whites in Injury Time

A late goal from CSKA Moscow denied Real Madrid to win the game in the first leg of its Champions League last-16 tie on Tuesday night. This game was the tenth official game for whites in Russia from 1981 .

The Russian team was doing better in the first minutes of the game and they benefited of the hard conditions like grass and low tempreture . Benzema injured himself attempting a long strike  and had to be replaced by Higuain (13′), who had the first chance in the game with a shot that was cleared by Chepchugov .

Ronaldo scored the first goal of the match in 27th minute assisted by Higuain .

A few minutes after starting the second half Callejon lost two chances to open CSKA goals in 50′ and 51′ minutes .

Finally Swedish Wernbloom made the game draw in injury time .

“The result is not bad , Im not happy with that but we still have good opportunity to qualify for the next round as we did before with Lyon.” Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho said .

Madrid welcomes CSKA to the Santiago Bernabeu for the second leg on March 14 .
