Ahmed Musa scored his 10th goal in Russia as CSKA Moscow fought back to salvage a 2-2 draw at home with Moscow city rivals Spartak.

Spartak were without Nigerian striker Emmanuel Emenike, who is still out injured since the 2013 AFCON.

CSKA Moscow still lead the Russia Premier League table with 57 points from 25 games, while Spartak are fifth on the table on 41 points.

“That is football, we wanted to win to extend our lead on the table. We are happy with the point at least it is better than to lose. This game is over, but we will work harder to get victories in the subsequent games,” Musa told

In Holland, former Nigeria U20 international Uche Nwofor returned to scoring way as he helped his team VVV Venlo secure a 2-2 draw at home to FC Twente.
