Lokomotiv Advances as PSG Is Stunned in Haifa




Two goals from towering teenager Dmitry Bulykin helped Lokomotiv Moscow cruise into the second round of the European Cup Winners Cup with a 3-1 home win over CSKA Kiev.


Thursday's result gave last year's semifinalist a 5-1 aggregate victory after winning the first leg 2-0 in Ukraine.


Veteran defender Serhiy Bezhenar gave CSKA hope when he scored with a powerful free-kick in the 13th minute.


But just six minutes later 18-year-old Bulykin, who stands over 2 meters tall, equalized with a header from a cross by fellow striker Alexander Borodyuk.


Bulykin scored again from another Borodyuk pass in the 53rd minute to make the tie safe for Lokomotiv, and Georgian striker Zaza Dzhanashia scored the home side's third with 20 minutes remaining.


In Haifa, Israel, an injury time winner from Alon Mizrahi saw Maccabi Haifa shock Paris St. Germain 3-2 to move into the second round 4-3 on aggregate.


Following the 1-1 draw which the Israelis brought back from Paris two weeks ago, it was clear the Parisians would be under great pressure from the start.


Their coach, Alain Giresse, had kept all prying eyes away from his training sessions, but the night appeared to hold no secrets as the Maccabi defense coped well with most of the PSG attacks.


The Parisians looked the stronger in a goalless first half as Nicolas Ouedec and Igor Yanovski tested Haifa keeper Nir Davidovich.


At the other end, PSG's goalkeeper Bernard Lama was hardly troubled as Haifa's creative Bosnian midfielder, Ibrahim Duro, failed to break through the last lines of the Paris defense with his surging runs.


After going down 2-1, PSG evened the score at two through J.J. Okocha four minutes from time f and this would have been enough to see the Frenchmen go through on away goals.


But Mizrahi had other ideas, and his winner came two minutes into injury time.


The striker's powerful 18-meter shot from the left took a deflection off Alain Goma and ended up in the back of the helpless Lama's net.
