CSKA and Chonbuk Hyundai Motors finished 0-0 in the third control of the “army” of the team camp in Spain.
So far, coach Milos Krushcic’s team has recorded losses in its Marbella checks – 0: 5 from second division Nuremberg and 0: 1 from Japan’s Shonan Belmare.
Overall, Chonbuk took the lead and seemed to have the upper hand, but CSKA created more clean goals and may regret not ultimately winning.
In the first half, the soldiers were the better team on the pitch as Evandro missed the cleanest goal position in the 3rd minute when he found himself alone against the keeper after a pass to Davidov, but his shot went over the goal.
After 34 minutes, Tomi Juric sent a free kick in high over the penalty box, but the ball went wide. At the end of half time CSKA created two more dangerous positions outside the door of Chonbuk.
In the 44th minute, Edwin Jesse fired dangerously out of the gate, and seconds later Denis Davidov made a nice break between two defenders and was fouled in the arc of the penalty area. This was followed by a direct free kick, inaccurately executed by Juric.
In the second half CSKA also showed very good play, both in defense and in the front positions.
After 60 minutes, Jefferson sent a free kick in high over the penalty box, but the ball went wide. Shortly afterwards, Evandro fired a powerful shot from outside the penalty area, but again Chonbuk’s guard intervened adequately and struck a corner.
Throughout the meeting, CSKA has shown a very solid defense performance, completely defrauding one of the strongest Asian teams that has the names of half a dozen South Korean nationals.
The next control of the army is on January 31 (Friday) against the Czech Victoria Pilsen.
