CSKA Moscow will look to make progress to the group stages
CSKA Moscow will look to make progress to the group stages of the UEFA Cup on Tuesday evening when they face NK Slaven Koprivnica in the Russian capital.

CSKA, who became the first Russian club to win a European trophy when they lifted the UEFA Cup in 2005, came back from a goal behind against the Croatian minnows to earn a 2-1 win in the first leg two weeks ago.

The Muscovite's trainer, Valery Gazzayev, said on Monday that he was confident of victory.

"I am not worrying about anything ahead of the match, but that doesn't mean I underestimate our opponents," Gazzayev, who is set to leave CSKA at the end of the season, told the sports.ru website.

Gazzayev announced his decision to quit the three-time Russian champions earlier this year, citing tiredness.

In the domestic league, CSKA moved into second place with a 2-1 home win against Siberian side Tom Tomsk at the weekend. The club's young striker, Alan Dzagoev, recently called up to the national team, scored his third goal in two games in the match.

The two other Russian clubs involved in the UEFA Cup, Spartak Moscow and FC Moskva, play on Thursday.

Spartak beat Czech side FC Banik Ostrava 1-0 away from home in the first leg of their tie, while Moskva lost 2-1 in the Russian capital to the Danish side FC Kobenhavn.
