CSKA ease past Amkar 3-0; Kuban crush Mordovya
CSKA Moscow 3 – Amkar Perm 0 (Russian Premier League, November 18, 2012) Rasmus Elm (penalty), Ahmed Musa and Aleksandrs Cauna scored for league leaders CSKA.
Mordovya 0 – Kuban Krasnodar 3 (Russian Premier League, November 18, 2012) The hosts went ahead on an 18th-minute own goal by Ukrainian defender Pavel Stepanets, who stabbed a cross from Alexei Ionov into his own net under very little pressure. Kuban’s Senegalese striker Ibrahima Balde scored a spectacular second on 27 minutes, sending a 25-yard rocket into the top corner of Dmitry Abakumov’s goal. Aras Ozbiliz made it three with an average free kick that Abakumov misjudged and palmed into his own net.
