CSKA confirmed that it would finish a regular season champion thanks to a 5-2 home win over Medvescak.
The Army Men went into the game knowing that victory here and defeat for Dynamo at Lokomotiv would guarantee top spot – and there was no shortage of confidence after Wednesday’s imposing 12-0 thrashing of Slovan.
But Medvescak, initially at least, hadn’t read the script. Goals in the first five minutes from Pascal Pelletier and Edwin Hedberg gave the visitor an unexpected 2-0 lead and saw Ilya Sorokin come off the bench to replace starting goalie Kevin Lalande.
