CSKA comeback stun Basle



CSKA Moscow scored twice in the second half to beat Basle 2-1 on Tuesday as the Russians gave themselves a Champions League lifeline and frustrated their opponents' hopes of booking an early spot in the last 16.

Basle had looked set to wrap up a place in the knockout stage with two games to spare after Luca Zuffi's instinctive lob gave the Swiss side the lead after 32 minutes, but the match was turned on its head following the break.

Alan Dzagoev came off the bench to level in the 65th with a composed chip before CSKA's Swedish midfielder Pontus Wernbloom fired in a vicious drive with 11 minutes remaining to complete a superb comeback.

Second-place Basle are now level on six points with CSKA, with both teams six adrift of Group A leaders Manchester United.
