Mourinho 'satisfied' with Moscow draw

REAL Madrid boss Jose Mourinho expressed his satifaction at a job well done despite the fact that his side threw away a first leg advantage in the very last minute against CSKA Moscow in sub-zero temperatures.

"Our opponents were tough and the match was hard," Mourinho (pictured right) said.

"Our opponents did very little to score but got their goal.

"They were very happy to get that.

"We had our chances, especially in the second half, but we didn't convert them.

"In the end ... I'm satisfied with the result."

CSKA equalised from the last kick of the match when Pontus Wernbloom scrambled the ball into the net, giving the Russian club a 1-1 draw.

The Swedish midfielder's debut for CSKA ended with him poking the ball home in the third minute of stoppage time in the first leg at Luzhniki Stadium.

Wernbloom's goal came after CSKA missed several chances following Cristiano Ronaldo's 28th-minute goal, his 36th of the season, which appeared to have the put the visitors on course for victory.
