Winger Ahmed Musa has shot to the head of the race for the Russian Premier League top scorer after
he scored on Sunday in CSKA Moscow’s 2-0 win at Dinamo Moscow.
The Nigeria international has now netted six goals to be the leading scorer in Russian Premier League alongside Brazilian forward Hulk, who features for Zenit St.Petersburg.
An elated Musa, who scored the second goal in the 77th minute of the derby against Dinamo on Sunday,
told AfricanFootball.com the victory will boost the team’s confidence as they aim to reclaim the championship.
“I am happy with the victory at Dinamo and getting a goal in the game is good for me as well,” he said. “It was not an easy game being a derby, but we worked hard to get the victory which we wanted.
“We have now won two derbies ataway this season (first was at Spartak Moscow) and that’s good for our confidence as we target to win the league.“I am not being carried away with my goals, I will keep working hard to score more.”
Musa also had his name on the scorers’ sheet last Wednesday in CSKA Moscow 3-2 defeat of PSV Eindhoven in a UEFA Champions League game played at the Arena Khimki.
The game, which was Leonid Slutsky side’s first win in the competition, saw the former Kano Pillars forward net the first goal of the encounter in the eighth minute.
