Sergei Ignashevich scored a late equalizer to give CSKA Moscow a 1-1 draw against PAOK Thessaloniki on Tuesday which put the Russian club through to the last 16 of the Europa League.
CSKA won the first leg 1-0 away, and advanced 2-1 on aggregate.
Zlatan Muslimovic put PAOK in the lead in the 67th after a mistake by CSKA's substitute goalkeeper Sergei Chepchugov. But PAOK goalkeeper Dario Kresic then fouled Tomas Tosic in the area in the 80th to give CSKA a decisive penalty. Kresic stopped Brazilian striker Vagner Love's spot kick, but Ignashevich slotted in the rebound.
The visitors dominated much of the game in subzero temperatures at Luzhniki stadium and wasted several scoring opportunities early.
CSKA had to substitute injured goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev in the 64th.
