    • 90+3' There goes the final whistle! A 3-2 win for Inter. A hard-fought victory. Inter good for their win. Thanks for joining us.
    • 90+1' Chivu trudges off to be replaced by Lorenzo Crisetig.
    • 89' Three minutes to be added to the match.
    • 88' Cesar out to calm the visiting side's nerves by collecting a cross ball.
    • 87' Zanetti gives the ball away before Cambiasso is booked for a foul on Aldonin.
    • 86' Inter right back in the hunt in Group B with this victory. Tosic's latest cross is just kicked up the park by Lucio. Anywhere will do now.
    • 85' Chivu doing superbly well to match the run of Oliseh as he tried to get past the Romanian. Another goalkick for Inter.
    • 84' Love and Doumbia challenge for the same ball, but they end up colliding as the ball loops over the Inter bar.
    • 83' Home fans trying to encourage a late effort to rescue a point as Tosic's cross is whacked clear by Lucio. Fine cross.
    • 82' Doumbia takes down Nagatomo and Inter have a free-kick which is pumped up the park by Cesar.
    • 81' Jonathan on to replace Alvarez for Inter. Clock no longer CSKA's friend in this match.
    • 80' Tosic with the corner, but no takers on hand to force it over the line. Relief in that Inter defence.
    • 79' Chivu makes a bit of a mess of a clearance, and the home side have a corner.
    • 78' Ranieri demanding total concentration from his side as Aldonin's dipping shot is gathered by Julio Cesar.
    • 77' Inter pieced together a superb move there. Makes you wonder why they were so bothered about defending. Went through the Russian defence like they were not there in that attack.
    • 76' GOAL!! Zarate thumps home the ball from the edge of the home area. Lovely pass by Cambiasso and that is a class finish. No chance for Gabulov. Inter lead 3-2.
    • 75' Inter looking stunned by that moment. The home fans in party mood. Inter trying to get back up the pitch.
    • 74' GOAL!! Love goes past Zanetti and Lucio before firing the ball beyond Cesar from inside the area. Would you believe it! The home side are level.
    • 73' Ignashevich heads out the pass from Zarate. CSKA try to break, but Inter rescue the situation as they dash back to scramble clear.
    • 72' Inter Milan with 15 shots at goal compared to 11 from CSKA. Milito caught offside from Samuel's pass.
    • 71' Ignashevich cuts out the cross from Nagatomo and the visitors have another corner. This time Zarate's delivery fails to trouble CSKA.
    • 70' Lucio back in the wars out there. Inter would dearly love a third goal. This game far from over.
    • 69' Inter living so dangerously as Dzagoev smashes a ball across goal, but Doumbia and Love can't convert. Agonising stuff for the home side.
    • 68' Tosic goes for goal, but never enough power on that shot as it goes through the wall without any great problems for Cesar.
    • 67' Oliseh is fouled by Obi, who is booked for that late challenge. Another free-kick for the Russian club.
    • 66' Tosic replaces Pavel Mamayev for the home side.
    • 65' Fine stop by Gabulov to keep the shot out from Alvarez! That would have killed it before CSKA hack the ball out after a frantic scramble.
    • 64' Ignashevich knocks the ball out from Milito's cross. Zarate with the corner for the visiting side.
    • 63' CSKA with over 60% of possession. Walter Samuel barks a few orders at his fellow defenders as Inter bed down to try to see this one home.
    • 62' Inter content to hit on the break with Chivu tackled there by Vasili Berezutsky.
    • 61' Zarate showing his class to get a shot at the CSKA goal on the break, but can't find the finish as a grateful Gabulov dives to make the save.
    • 60' Dzagoev fires in a shot from outside of the area, but an easy take for Cesar in the Inter goal. Plenty of power, but no direction.
    • 59' Ranieri standing looking a bit more concerned than he was in the first half. CSKA looking a whole more dangerous in this period.
    • 58' Alvarez slips the ball into the path of Nagatomo, but his first touch is far too heavy as he prods the ball out of play. Goalkick to the home side.
    • 57' Love again trying to go past two or three men, but he is robbed of the ball by the long legs of Lucio. Poor play really by him.
    • 56' Fine piece of work from Zarate to drill in a shot from inside the box. Got hold of the drive, but Gabulov dived low to his left to swat the ball behind.
    • 55' Inter trying to cut through the CSKA defence, but not exactly throwing bodies at it with Diego Milito their sole forward.
    • 54' Oliseh takes out Chivu with a late tackle and Inter have a free-kick deep in their own half. Julio Cesar launches a free-kick long.
    • 53' Oliseh's cross is nodded out before an offside flag goes up against Chivu as Inter launched a fine break. Inter certainly not lacking speed going foward.
    • 52' Love guilty of giving the ball away far too cheaply in the Inter defensive third. Here they are back on the attack.
    • 51' Inter try to ease their worries as Chivu lets fly from 30 yards out, but the ball is always heading over the bar from distance.
    • 50' Change then for Inter. Pazzini seems in a spot of trouble as he is replaced by Zarate.
    • 49' So close for CSKA! Mamayev with an effort from goal that flies just wide of goal from inside the Inter box. A real let-off with Julio Cesar beaten.
    • 48' Change coming alread for Inter by the looks of things as Zarate gets ready for action on the touchline. CSKA on the attack again here.
    • 47' CSKA try to test the mettle of the Inter defence immediately at the outset of the half as they win a couple of early corners. Cesar makes a couple of punches out, but not overly convincing.
    • 46' We are off and running in the second half. CSKA get the second period under way.
    • 45+2' There goes the whistle for the break! Suddenly, Inter not looking as certain of victory after losing that goal. We'll be right back with the second period.
    • 45+2' GOAL!! Dzagoev curls the free-kick over the wall from just outside of the visiting box and it leaves Cesar with no chance as the ball flies into the net. CSKA back in the game. They trail 2-1.
    • 45+1' Samuel takes out Oliseh and the home side have a free-kick deep in injury time in this half.
    • 44' Two minutes to be added to this half.
    • 43' Chivu watches a long ball like a hawk to nod the ball out of play as Doumbia tried to break free.
    • 42' Lucio is injured trying to take a nibble at Love. He is down on the deck needing a spot of treatment. May be a hamstring problem for Lucio.
    • 41' Has been a decent night's work so far for Inter. Samuel takes out Love with a strong tackle, but no free-kick.
    • 40' Nagatomo and Mameyev collide going for a loose ball in the air. Ball back with Gabulov in the CSKA goal.
    • 39' Milito picks out Lucio from the cross ball as Inter break up the park. The big Brazilian's header is easily held by Gabulov in the home goal.
    • 38' Love held off the challenge from Cambiasso. Opts to go for goal from outside of the box, but the ball was always curling wide of Julio Cesar's right hand post.
    • 37' Pazzini seems to go over on his ankle as he went for goal from 25 yards. Limping at the moment, but should be ok to continue.
    • 36' Foul by Ignashevich on Pazzini, and Inter can take the sting out of the home team's forays forward.
    • 35' CSKA really need a goal before the break as Lucio wins a header in the Inter area ahead of Doumbia.
    • 34' Oliseh throws over a cross. Ball delivered to the heart of the Inter box, but Julio Cesar is out quickly to collect.
    • 33' Love picks out Dzagoev. He goes for goal with an acrobatic overhead kick, but well over the bar and wide too. Silly effort really.
    • 32' Captain Zanetti tries to join the party. Goes for goal from 25 yards. Lifts the shot over the bar from distance. Decent effort.
    • 31' Zanetti still looking a class act for Inter out there. Supremely fit as Inter again speed forward, but Alvarez's shot from distance is blocked.
    • 30' Fine defending by Nagatomo to hold up the run by Dzagoev and prevent him from delivering a timely cross. CSKA's best spell of the match here.
    • 29' CSKA go close again as Doumbia's header hits a post from Dzagoev's corner. Better from the home side. Suddenly looking a lot more dangerous.
    • 28' Fine stop by Julio Cesar! Stunning reflexes to swat the volley from Dzagoev over the bar from 12 yards. Superb goalkeeping.
    • 27' Pazzini's cross this time is easily dealt with by Gabulov. This home side lacking seriously in any creativity.
    • 26' In seven visits to Moscow for European ties, Inter have only suffered one defeat. That came in the 2003/04 tournament when Lokomotiv Moscow beat them 3-0.
    • 25' Lucio is down and looks like he may be in need of a spot of treatment.
    • 24' Poor stuff really as the free-kick from Dzagoev fails to beat the first man before Milito is caught offside up front.
    • 23' Oliseh felled by Pazzini and the home side have a free-kick.
    • 22' CSKA's defence is all over the place out there. This night could get markedly worse for them unless they sort out their back line.
    • 21' GOAL!! Pazzini scores for Inter!! Lovely play from Nagatomo to nutmeg Alexei Berezutsky before crossing for Pazzini to flick the ball home from close range. Inter lead 2-0.
    • 20' Home fans trying to inspire their side to start producing some quality, but Inter have the ball out wide here with Nagatomo.
    • 19' Inter already with five shots at the home goal as Alvarez gives the ball away in the middle of the park. CSKA have it.
    • 18' Ranieri well wrapped on the touchline on what looks like a chilly night. Chivu produces a fine tackle to halt the run of Oliseh, but the corner comes to nothing for CSKA.
    • 17' Doumbia goes to ground far too easily after a collision with Lucio. Never a penalty there. The home man was looking for it.
    • 16' Some really fine wing play by Alvarez. Does well to hang the ball up to the back post, but Obi can't get a shot at goal.
    • 15' Mamaev brings down Obi and Inter can continue their pursuit of a second goal.
    • 14' Inter looking a changed side from the one that lost their opening match in the section to Trabzonspor. Could already be three clear here.
    • 13' Obi with the ball into the middle. Picks out Milito, but his crashing volley is straight at Gabulov. Poor defending again by the home team.
    • 12' Doumbia almost in for the equaliser from Love's flick on. Can't react quickly enough as Cesar gratefully collects for Inter.
    • 11' Almost a second for Inter! Lovely ball from Pazzini picks out Obi, but his header from eight yards is clawed out by Gabulov. Had to make that save as the ball was creeping inside a post.
    • 10' Dzagoev with the delivery, but just fails to pick out Love in the middle before Chivu rises to head the ball out of the danger area.
    • 9' Cambiasso goes in late on Doumbia and the home team have a free-kick. Chance for CSKA to ask questions of this Inter defence.
    • 8' Dzagoev plays a one-two from a corner moments later, but he puts far too much pace on the cross as the ball drifts out of play for a goalkick to the visitors.
    • 7' Seems lke Lucios's shot took a deflection there, but it matters little. Horrid goalkeeping error by Gabulov.
    • 6' GOAL!! Lucio scores for Inter! What a start for the home side! Gabulov misses the corner and the ball breaks to the Brazilian defender who turns it home at the back post.
    • 5' Pazzini's shot is deflected wide and Inter have a corner to be taken by Alvarez.
    • 4' Fine tackle by Cambiasso on Doumbia. CSKA knocking the ball around with some purpose early on. Alvarez on the ball for Inter as the visitors try to create something.
    • 3' Aldonin smashes a shot over the bar from distance. Well off target with that one from Cabiasso's headed clearance.
    • 2' CSKA with an early bout of possession at the back before Love catches Alvarez with a late one. Free-kick to Inter deep in their own half.
    • 1' Inter get this match off and running.
    • 16.57 Teams lining up ahead of the match with the traditional Champions League music playing. CSKA in red and blue, Inter in white. Almost ready to go in Moscow.
    • 16.55 Home striker Vagner Loves believes Inter remain favourites to win Group B. "Inter are favourites to finish top of our group. They have tradition and experienced players and it will be a difficult game."
    • 16.50 Inter produced a fine performance in winning 3-1 at Bologna in Serie A in Claudio Ranieri's first match in charge on Saturday. Read about that match here. Ranieri's Inter start with a win

    • 16.40 Match odds for this evening: CSKA Moscow 13/8, Internazionale 15/8, Draw 12/5
    • 16.35 CSKA Moscow have not kept a clean sheet in their last 19 Champions League games. The last time Inter Milan kept a clean sheet away from home in the Champions League was against CSKA Moscow in April 2010.
    • 16.30 A few facts to get you in the mood for this one: CSKA Moscow have lost all four of their competitive encounters with Inter Milan – they met in the group stages of the Champions League in 2007/08 and in the quarter-finals in 2009/10 when Inter went on to win the trophy.

    • 16.20 New Inter manager Ranieri is looking for a win after Inter lost 1-0 at home to Trabzonspor a fortnight ago, a result that prompted the demise of Gian Piero Gasperini. "I'm not a slave to any formation," he said. "I play to win and that's all. (Giampaolo) Pazzini and (Diego) Milito can play together as they both have good movement and are poachers in the box. We need to improve our crossing. The area counts a lot in football, but it's mostly about common sense."
    • 16.15 CSKA boss Leonid Slutsky is expecting a tough test after a 2-2 at Lille in their opening Group B match. He said: "It was very important to win (3-1 over Volga Nizhny Novgorod) ahead of a tough match with Inter. We achieved the required result though we failed to avoid difficulties in the match, which should be an easy test for us. We experienced problems creating chances and it bothers me as against Inter every single moment will be precious."
    • 16.10 INTER team news: Inter playmaker Wesley Sniejder has not travelled to the Russian capital after missing the weekend win over Bologna with a thigh injury. New Inter boss Claudio Ranieri admits he fears the Dutch international may be missing for longer than initially thought.
    • 16.05 CSKA team news: Russia's number one goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev is missing through injury for CSKA, so Vladimir Gabulov will deputise against 2010 champions Inter. Japanese playmaker Keisuke Honda is another big loss for the Moscow side. He has not played since injuring his knee in a derby game against Spartak at the end of August.
