On December 12, the Moscow football club CSKA beat Real Madrid in the sixth round of the UEFA Champions League group stage 3-0. In the first meeting between these teams, the Russian club also beat the current owner of the most prestigious European tournament – with a score of 1: 0.

Real Madrid has won the Champions League three times in a row over the past three years. The victory of CSKA with the score 3-0 happened on the road in Spain: the goals were scored by Fyodor Chalov, Georgy Shchennikov and Arnor Sigurdsson.

Despite two victories over the strongest opponent in the CSKA group, he flew out of the Champions League, and also did not get into any European Cup tournament. In a parallel game on December 12, Victoria Plzen turned out to be stronger than Roma – she outperformed the Russians by additional indicators, so she ended up in the Europa League.

Russian clubs for the first time since the season 2007/08 have not left theChampions League group round – in addition to CSKA Moscow Lokomotiv did not get anywhere either.
