In the second half the situation has not changed: "Arsenal" completely crushed and emerging CSKA goal seemed a matter of time. But the ball never hit hard mesh gate, even when he had nowhere to go. The first and only time at CSKA was created at the end of the match. Bored the entire match Wagner, managed to escape from the defenders of the "Arsenal" and go one on one with Jens Lehmann. But the German goalkeeper coped with a gentle forward stroke, and sorry ...

By the end of the match "Arena" were pressing on the gates On-line, continuing to blow right moments to capture the gate. Another way out, Henri, head-butting Fabregas etc.
