Doumbia double leads CSKA to win at nine-man Manchester City

MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Two goals from Seydou Doumbia either side of a Yaya Toure free kick gave CSKA Moscow a 2-1 victory over nine-man Manchester City in Group E in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Doumbia put CSKA ahead in the second minute with a header, but Toure equalized seven minutes later with a free kick from 25 yards out.

CSKA reclaimed the lead in the 34th minute when a lazy clearance from Gael Clichy found Bebras Natcho, before Doumbia beat Hart from just inside the penalty area.

City's halftime substitute Fernandinho was sent off in the 70th for two bookable offences, and Toure followed for pushing Roman Eremenko.

CSKA should have had Pontus Wernbloom dismissed for a second booking for a shirt-pull, but referee Tasos Sidiropoulos mistakenly booked Sergei Ignashevich instead.
