CSKA Moscow stun Sevilla with 2-1 win in second leg (agg: 3-2)

CSKA Moscow reached the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time with a well dserved away victory over Sevilla.

After a 1-1 draw in the first match in Moscow, Sevilla were regarded as favourites having secured an away goal.

However Tomas Necid stole the lead for CSKA late in the first half to cancel out the hosts' away goal, only for Diego Perotti to drag Sevilla level almost immediately.

Early in the second half Keisuke Honda's powerful free-kick saw CSKA Moscow go back in front as Sevilla goalkeeper Andres Palop made a mess of what should have been a straightforward save in the 55th minute.
