Moscow:

Brazilian striker Jo scored a brace on Saturday as CSKA Moscow beat crosstown rival Spartak Moscow 3-0 to win its second consecutive Russian Cup. Jo opened the scoring for the 2005 UEFA Cup champions in the 43rd minute, powering a 19-meter free kick through a wall of defenders. Spartak missed several clear chances to equalize before its Brazilian midfielder, Santos Mozart, was sent off for rough play in the 87th minute. CSKA Brazilian striker Vagner Love made it 2-0 with time almost up, dribbling from halfway and beating Spartak goalkeeper Wojciech Kowalewski one-on-one. Jo then scored from the edge of the box - his 17th goal in 16 matches for CSKA since joining last season - three minutes into second-half injury time. CSKA became the first Russian team to win a European title when it beat Sporting Lisbon in the UEFA Cup final, captured the Russian Cup, and won the league title. (AP)
