CSKA MOSCOW’S players were hit by a double whammy tonight – a 4-1 thrashing to Manchester United and the freezing cold.
Konstantin Kuchaev scored a consolation goal for the Russians in the 90th minute.
But for some of the players on the CSKA bench, there was little action on the pitch to warm the cockles.
Despite it being a positively balmy for Moscow seven degrees Celsius, players, including Vitinho who had been subbed, opted to put blankets on.
And they were a fashionable leopard-print design.
It only added to the picture of a disappointing night for the Russians, as United cruised to back-to-back victories in the Champions League.
United took the lead with only four minutes on the clock – and it was red-hot Romelu who was at it again.

Lukaku played the ball down the left for Martial, then kept on running into the box where he met the Frenchman’s cross in with a thumping header.
And the Russians were their own worst enemies when they went two goals down on 18 minutes.
Mkhitaryan had collected the ball in the box when he was bundled down in the crudest fashion by Georgi Schennikov.
Referee Jonas Eriksson had no hesitation in pointing to the spot, and Martial went from provider to goalscorer by stroking home the penalty to Igor Akinfeev’s left.
Things got even worse for CSKA and again it was their own fault.
Martial played a ball into the box and 35-year-old Vitali Berezutski got it all wrong trying to clear with an air-shot, and Lukaku tapped home for his second 26 minutes in.
The only surprise was that United didn’t extend their lead still further with CSKA woeful in the first 45.
But ten minutes into the half, it was 4-0.
Daley Blind capitalised on some poor defending to play in Martial. His shot was saved well by Akinfeev, but the ball fell out to Mkhitaryan who fired home the rebound.
Three minutes later and it was job done for Mkhitaryan, with Jesse Lingard coming on to replace him.
CSKA managed to grab a late, late consolation in the 90th minute when Kuchaev beat David de Gea with a neat finish, but it was without doubt a great night for Mourinho and his squad.
