Uefa have banned CSKA Moscow duo Alexei Berezutski and Sergei Ignashevich for one game each for failing doping tests.
So Rio Ferdinand gets 8 months in 2004 and these two get 1 game Not too mention do you remember that Russian player who helped knock Wales out of the EURO 2004 playoffs who tested positive, he didn't get 8 months did he ?
Rio got the long suspension because he failed to show up for the test, the CSKA players showed up, and while they failed it, the drug they were found to be using wasnt on the list of banned substance or something like that (I forget the name of the list) which is why they got a very small suspension and the club wasnt kicked out of Europe.
