Musa Fires CSKA Into UCL Group Stages, Onazi Crashes

By Johnny Edward and James Agberebi:

Super Eagles forward, Ahmed Musa, helped CSKA Moscow progress into the group stage of the UEFA Champions League after scoring the decisive goal against Sporting Lisbon in their 3-1 win.

Sporting Lisbon took the lead through Teofilo Gutierrez in the 36th minute, but two goals from Seydou Doumbia in the 49th and 72nd minutes, levelled the tie at 3-3.

With five minutes remaining, Musa scored the all-important third goal to help CSKA advance at the expense of Sporting Lisbon.

 It was Musa’s third and most important goal for CSKA this season in the competition.

In Germany, Ogenyi Onazi and Lazio lost 3-0 to Bayer Levekusen to crash out 3-1 on aggregate.

Goals from Hakan Calhanoglu, Admir Mehmedi and Karim Bellarabi, secured Leverkusen the win.

Onazi who was on from the start of the match, later made way for Ravel Morrison in the 82nd minute.
