CSKA striker: We could’ve beaten City

CSKA Moscow forward Ahmed Musa believes his team could have done even better than holding Manchester City to a draw last night.

Ahmed Musa was dismissive of Manchester City in the build-up to last night's Champions League clash with CSKA Moscow and he has again hit out at the Premier League side.

Musa suggested before the game that City were 'weak' at the back and stated his belief that the Russian side could get a result despite being underdogs.

And Musa's prediction played out as Manchester City let a two-goal lead slip away on a cold evening in Russia.

Substitute Seydou Doumbia scored and was then fouled for a controversial late penalty, which was converted by Bedras Natcho for 2-2.

"I'm very happy with our second half," Musa told UEFA.com.

"In the first half we showed too much respect for City but after the break we worked hard to get a point.

"After we got back level we had the drive to go on and win the game but we didn't have enough time.

"We have our first point but now we need to keep working hard."
