A clash between CSKA Moscow and Manchester city on Tuesday was supposed to go down in an empty stadium. A total of 650 people were expected in the pitch including 300 UEFA partners, 75 club delegates from each side and 50 center circle boys accompanied by their parents.
However, CSKA Moscow failed to honor the agreement and allowed some of their fans into the stadium. CSKA faced the punishment following racism chants and other offences last year from their home fans.
CSKA match against Bayern Munich was also played in an empty stadium last month, and it is yet to be made clear if UEFA will take any action against Moscow.
In the first half, Manchester city seemed to dominate the match which they had to win to get back on track in the premier league.
Before the 45th minute whistle, city were leading by 2 goals to nil following James Milner and Sergio Aguero’s perfect strikes.
Everything seemed to be right until Manchester city failed to defend their lead and CSKA managed to come back from the first half loss to lock the game at 2-2 draw.
Seydou Dombia helped his team, Moscow get the first goal of the match minutes before Bebar Natcho converted a penalty to get the equalizer.
