Match Preview

Slutsky: Rustiness could hinder CSKA Leonid Slutsky admits he does not know how his CSKA Moscow team will perform against PAOK Salonika on Thursday. With the Russian league season ending in November, CSKA have not played a match since a 1-1 draw with Sparta Prague in their final Europa League group game on December 15. That was their only slip in an otherwise perfect campaign, which brought seven straight wins and an average of three goals per game as they easily topped Group F. But potential rustiness is a major concern for Slutsky as his side prepare for the first leg of their last-32 clash in Thessaloniki. He said at Wednesday's pre-match press conference: "It's too early yet to know how we will play. "It is difficult for a team to play again after an interruption like this. I'll be happy if we look at the minimum of what we did before the break." Mark Gonzalez and Sekou Oliseh have recovered from injuries but Slutsky will wait until Thursday to decide on the fitness of Keisuke Honda and Vagner Love. The coach added: "We must cope with the absence of important players so it does not affect the organisation of the team." Captain Igor Akinfeev gave his team, the UEFA Cup champions in 2005, only a 50-50 chance of progressing to the last 16. He said: "We will look at how we can improve. We know each other, we have done intensive training, but it's all about Thursday night. The chances of qualifying are 50-50 I think." CSKA's form before Christmas and their European pedigree has seen them tipped as potential winners of the trophy, but Akinfeev played down those hopes. The goalkeeper said: "Only the games will show what we can achieve. There are many candidates, not only from Russia but from England and other countries." First CSKA have to beat PAOK, and Akinfeev admitted the renowned atmosphere at the Toumba Stadium will be a factor. He added: "We have played in many stadiums and such atmosphere is unusual. Some are less crazy, some more crazy like here." In contrast to their opponents, PAOK were the lowest goalscorers to make it through the group stage, netting only five times as they finished runners-up to Villarreal in Group D. They are, however, unbeaten in their last six European home games and are boosted by the fitness of Vladimir Ivic, Vitolo and Lino.

Match Report

Necid earns CSKA crucial away win Tomas Necid scored the only goal to give CSKA Moscow a slender 1-0 advantage in their Europa League last-32 clash at PAOK Salonika. Necid struck after 29 minutes at the Toumbas Stadium with the away goal making the Russian side favourites to progress ahead of the return leg in Moscow next week. With the Russian domestic season ending in November, CSKA had not played a match since drawing with Sparta Prague in their final Europa League group game on December 15. And their rustiness was apparent as Bruno Cirillo was allowed an early shot for PAOK before Vieirinha's curling free-kick had to be punched clear by Igor Akinfeev. The CSKA goalkeeper did even better after 12 minutes, tipping a first-time shot from Dimitris Salpingidis round the post, before Vladimir Ivic headed the resulting corner over the target from close range. CSKA had to wait 22 minutes for their first chance, although it was a speculative shot from distance by Aleksandrs Cauna which cleared the crossbar. The visitors soon began to grow in confidence, though, and Zoran Tosic came much closer with a left-footed strike which curled just past the left upright. And they were in front after 29 minutes thanks to Necid, who neatly tucked away a cross from Georgi Shchennikov into the bottom right corner. Having got themselves on the scoreboard, CSKA looked to add to their lead and PAOK goalkeeper Kostas Chalkias had to be at his best before the interval to keep out efforts from Seydou Doumbia, Necid and Tosic. Chalkias failed to emerge after the break due to injury, with Dario Kresic taking his place between the posts. Lino then tried to produce an equaliser for PAOK but could only aim his free-kick straight at Akinfeev. Kresic saw his first action after 53 minutes holding onto a free-kick from Tosic, and caused further frustration for CSKA 10 minutes later with two fine saves in quick succession to palm away shots from Tosic and Pavel Mamaev. Both sides continued to have their chances as the half wore on, Stavros Tsoukalas driving wide for PAOK before Necid also directed an effort past the right post. Substitute Nabil El Zhar had one final chance to equalise for the Greek hosts seven minutes from time, but Akinfeev was equal to the challenge, punching away his 18-yard drive.
