Gabrielle Onguene was on target as CSKA Moscow defeated Kubanochka in a Russian Women's top-flight game on Thursday.

The Russian giants went into the tie on the back of their 1-1 draw at Lokomotiv Moscow at Sapsan Arena Stadium last Friday.

Third-placed Kubanochka aimed to claim a second win on the bounce following a 1-0 win at Ryazan last week.

The visitors wasted no time to gain the lead as Valeriia Bespalikova opened the scoring just two minutes into the encounter.

The Cameroon international got on the scoresheet just 15 minutes later to guarantee Maksim Zinovyev's ladies at Kuban Stadium.

The 30-year-old, who featured for the duration of the match, has now scored four goals in 10 outings for CSKA this season.

She will join her Indomitable Lionesses mates for a Tokyo 2020 Olympic qualifier against Ethiopia this week.

The result means CKSA have opened a six-point gap at the top of the table with 38 points from 14 games this season.

They will play host to fourth-placed Zvezda Perm in their next encounter at Stadion Oktyabr on August 27.
