Ten-man CSKA Moscow held out for a 0-0 draw against Trabzonspor at the Huseyin Avni Aker stadium on Wednesday evening in Champions League Group B.

Early efforts from Seydou Doumbia and Wagner Love went close for the visitors, but they had to settle for a point after the Ivorian was sent off for two bookable offences.

Trabzonspor went into the game knowing that a win would put them in pole position for that elusive second qualification spot behind favourites Inter. They did so by making two changes to the side that beat Gaziantepspor 1-0 at the weekend. Didier Zokora replaced Aykut Akgun in midfield, whilst top-goalscorer Burak Yilmaz came in to the side.

But it was CSKA that started the brightest. Within the first two minutes Doumbia had taken the ball around Tolga Zengin in the Trabzonspor goal, but unfortunately his weak effort was blocked on the line.

The former Young Boys striker was proving a real handful for the Trabzonspor defence, but it was his strike partner who had the next effort of the half. A deep run from Vagner Love was not closed down by the Turkish side, and he hit a rasping shot from 30 yards out that only just missed the target.

Burak Yilmaz was providing some tireless running for the home side, but again, it was the strike duo for CSKA that were supplying the best chances. This time, Vagner Love played a delicious through-ball for Doumbia who, from 18 yards, could only fire straight at the goalkeeper to take the sides back into the break at 0-0.

Senol Gunes' men started the second half with much more urgency, and again Burak Yilmaz was showing his worth to the side with committed and intelligent running, but it was the visitors who were creating all the chances. Tosic struck a swivelling volley on 60 minutes that just evaded the far post.

Those missed chances very nearly cost CSKA 10 minutes later as substitute Alanzinho skipped past Vasili Berezutski, but his shot was easily saved by Gabulov, who was made to work for the first time in the evening in the visiting goal.

Things were made somewhat harder for the Russians with 15 minutes remaining as Doumbia was sent off for a second yellow card, but Leonid Slutskiy's men held out for the draw.

That point means both teams go into their next set of games on five points. CSKA host Lille, while Trabzonspor, who are also at home, play Inter.
