The Russian side held a 1-0 aggregate lead heading into the second leg match, and Mbark Boussoufa made it 2-0 on aggregate in the 17th minute with a shot from inside the box.

Eto'o is the most high profile player at the club and he proved his worth when he outdid his teammate with a vital second goal in first-half stoppage time.

The former Barcelona and Inter Milan striker dribbled past four AZ players before bursting through and blasting into the bottom corner.

Anzhi were simply having fun after the break, and managed to increase the score to 5-0, with Lacina Traoré, Mehdi Carcela-Gonzalez and Shamil Lakhiyalov adding their names to the scoreboard.
