CSKA Moscow kept up the pressure at the top of the Russian Premier League with a 3-1 victory at Krylya Sovetov.

The visitors were two goals up after just seven minutes thanks to Zoran Tosic and Seydou Doumbia, with Tosic notching again ten minutes into the second half. Alan Chochiyev's reply came too late for Krylya as CSKA closed the gap on leaders Lokomotiv Moscow to two points.

Terek Grozny boosted their hopes of escaping the bottom four with a 1-0 win at Amkar Perm, courtesy of Oleg Ivanov's 42nd-minute strike.
