CSKA Moscow midfielder Georgi Schennikov admitted that the victory over Real Madrid made his team overwhelmed with positive energy. However, the victory did not provide much joy because they remained eliminated from European competition.
As is known, CSKA Moscow surprisingly successfully won a landslide victory over the defending Champions League champions, Real Madrid. Playing at the Santiago Bernabeu, Viktor Goncharenko’s side won three goals without reply.
This victory itself became a disgrace to the hosts Real Madrid who finally felt the biggest defeat in their history in European competition.
CSKA Moscow scored three goals at the Santiago Bernabeu. Fedor Chalov was able to open their lead in the 37th minute before on 43 minutes Georgi Shchennikov doubled his position. In the 73rd minute Arnor Sigurdsson sealed the visitors’ victory over the hosts.
Although success won three points in the last party in Group G, but the victory was not able to make CSKA Moscow moved from the bottom of the standings and that means also failed to appear in the Europa League.
“We were full of positive emotions at the final whistle, but were very disappointed after hearing the results at Plzen,” he said.
“We hope for Roma for at least the series but that doesn’t happen. However, our young team has got important experience in the Champions League and this is certainly good for the future,” he said.
