In the Swiss Super League, he scored 20 goals in his maiden season and 30 in the 2009-10 season, making him twice top goalscorer in the Swiss Championship.
On 5 January 2010, Russian club CSKA Moscow completed the transfer of Doumbia. Under the terms of the contract, he would stay at Young Boys until the end of the season before moving to Russia.
He made his debut in 2-1 win over Spartak Moscow on 1 August 2010, thereby becoming the 200th CSKA player to appear in the Russian league. On 19 August 2010, he scored his first goal for CSKA Moscow in the first leg of a Europa League playoff tie against Anorthosis Famagusta and added another goal seven minutes later. In the second leg, Doumbia leveled the score with 5 minutes to go and CSKA Moscow went on to win 2-1 (6-1 in aggregate). On 14 September 2011, he scored twice in a 2-2 Champions League draw against Lille.
Doumbia earned his first international cap for Côte d'Ivoire in a friendly match against Japan during the Kirin Cup on 24 May 2008. He scored his first international goal in a friendly against Germany on 18 November 2009 in a 2–2 draw. He was selected for Côte d'Ivoire in the 2010 World Cup, but only made one appearance, as a substitute, in a 3-0 win against North Korea.
