After churning out a good display in Abuja on Wednesday, scoring two goals in the Super Eagles’ 3-1 win over Sudan, Ahmed Musa was again at his best scoring two goals in CSKA Moscow’s 6-0 win over Kuban Krasnodar in a Russian Premier League game on Saturday.
Musa scored a goal each in the two halves of Saturday’s game played at the Arena Khimki.
The dashing Nigerian forward put his team in the lead as early as the 13th minute off an assist from Roman Eremenko.
Eremenko then doubled CSKA’s lead just four minutes later, with Georgi Milanov helping him out with the assist.
Musa and his teammates were unable to add to their tally as it remained 2-0 at half time, and the visitors kept the score line that way till the 69th minute before CSKA reloaded for more goals.
First it was Igor Armaş that scored an own-goal, and then just a minute later Musa completed his brace; scoring his second goal of the game.
With five minutes left in regulation time and victory already sealed, Ivorian striker, Seydou Doumbia, got himself on the scorers’ sheet after Musa provided him a pass and his strike made it 5-0 in favour of the home team.
Just like Musa, Doumbia also completed his brace in the 90th minute as CSKA smiled away with the huge win that has lifted them to within one point of leaders Zenit, although CSKA have played one more game.
