MOSCOW (RUSSIA) – Cska Moscow-Roma 1-2, goals: Kostas Manolas 3 ', Sigurdsson 50', Lorenzo Pellegrini 59 ' . Match valid for the fourth day of the Champions League group stage. Ranking : Rome and Real Madrid 9, Cska Moscow 4 and Viktoria Plzen 1.
The Rome comes out with a smile and arms raised from the glacier of the Luzhniki stadium, returning home with a success (2-1) that is worth gold and opens the doors of the knockout rounds of the Champions League. Against Real Madrid, at the end of the month, it will be enough a match at the Olimpico to move forward. It is a Rome that proves to know how to suffer, the one that beats for the second time the Russians of CSKA Moscow, combat, essential and less distracted than in other circumstances. Extremely practical, just like it and Di Francesco.
That, on the field where Real Madrid was defeated, took the lead after just 4 'thanks to Manolas: the Greek central defense collects a corner from the left of Lorenzo Pellegrini, anticipates the unfortunate exit of Akinfeev and bags in the door empty. The opening goal freezes, more than the weather already does, the ambitions of the Russians, who are struggling to get organized, moreover entangled by the balanced 4-2-3-1 of the Giallorossi.
You have to wait about twenty minutes to see the hosts at the end: Vlasic, however, sends the ball to the side. Olsen 26 'easy on Bijol, but it is Rome to keep up the tension: as in the 29th minute, when Kluivert starts on the counterattack, but the passage in the corridor for Florenzi does not have the expected effects, because the joker ends up alone earth, failing 2-0. The doubling seems to be postponed to the half hour, when a rejection of Akinfeev on Dzeko seems the right opportunity, but the pull of the striker ends high. Manolas saves in the final time on Oblyakov, then comes Schennikov's head and sends it high to half-empty door.
In the second half Cska equalized almost immediately with the Icelandic Sigurdsson, after a percussion of Akhmetov: his right-footed shot exceeds Olsen. It's 6 ', but only 8 more passes and Roma returns to lead: Cristante ciabatta from the edge, the shot becomes an assist for Pellegrini who overcomes Akinfeev (and signs the first goal in the Champions League career) with a shot to cross .
Shortly before the Russians had remained in 10 for the expulsion of Magnusson, but no one notices the numerical inferiority, because Rome can not capitalize on man more. Indeed, suffers and risks as well. It remains the lead until the end, but could have done it with less suffering, perhaps lowering the trio and putting the result in the safe.
