CSKA Moscow won Russian Cup for a record sixth time on Sunday, beating second-tier team Alaniya Vladikavkaz 2-1 after Seydou Doumbia scored once in each half.

The Ivory Coast striker gave CSKA the lead in the 13th minute, receiving a pass from Vagner Love before finding the net with a low right-footed shot from 11 meters (yards).

Brazilian striker Danilo Neco equalized for Alaniya in the 23rd through a solo effort, but Doumbia headed in the winner from Keisuke Honda's cross in the 69th minute.

CSKA now has one more Russian Cup title than Lokomotiv Moscow.

Alaniya, which was relegated from the Russian topflight last season, is only the third first-division team to reach the final.
