Uefa Champions League: Cska Moscow 1-1 Manchester United

Anthony Martial scored his first Champions League goal to seal a 1-1 draw for Manchester United in Wednesday’s trip to CSKA Moscow.

Seydou Doumbia put the home side ahead inside quarter of an hour after turning home the rebound from Roman Eremenko’s saved penalty, which Martial had conceded after being penalised for handball.

The France international redeemed his error in the second half with a fine headed equaliser – his first career goal in the competition as Van Gaal’s men picked up a point.

United dictated possession for the majority, but it was an encounter low on quality, with CSKA diligent in their defensive duties and the visitors too often lethargic on the ball.

Memphis Depay – left out of the starting XI again – was thrown on for the final 10 minutes, but the visitors could not find the winning goal to take them level on points with Wolfsburg at the top of the group.
