CSKA Moscow suffered a home defeat from AS Roma with the score 1: 2 at the Luzhniki stadium in the fourth round of the Champions' League group stage in Moscow on Wednesday.

Eusebio Di Francesco, AS Roma team's head coach said that "when the match gets tough, against a team that defeated Real Madrid, that has good players and has enthusiasm, who attack spaces and it's good in ball possession - it wasn't an easy match."

According to Viktor Goncharenko, CSKA team's head coach, "such matches are good for us in terms of further progress."

At the 4th minute of the game, after the standard draw, the Italians scored the first goal, and at the 9th minute one of the key players of CSKA and the Russian national team Mario Fernandez was seriously injured.

"According to the available information, it can be a concussion, a fracture of the cheekbone, [possibly a fracture of the nose]," Goncharenko said.

At the beginning of the second half of the game, the home team won back thanks to a ball scored by Arnor Sigurdsson.

On the 59th minute the Italian team scored the second goal. Despite all the efforts of CSKA players, the home team failed to recoup. The meeting ended with the score 1: 2.

For CSKA, this was the second defeat in the Champions' League group, where they rank the third place with four points. Roma, in turn, scored 9 points and came out on top in the quartet.
