Ahmed Musa delivered an outstanding performance as his two goals helped CSKA Moscow fight back to secure a 2-1 win over Krasnodar on Sunday.

After a goalless affair in the first half, Yury Gazinskiy's 53rd-minute goal put the visitors ahead but Musa's efforts in the 73rd and 85th minute turned the tide around for the Red-Blues who clinched their 15th league of the season.
