CSKA Moscow Preview

CSKA Moscow dropped seven points off the pace of leaders Zenit St. Petersburg at the weekend after being frustratingly held to a 0-0 draw away to Dinamo Moscow. Dinamo had failed to score in their previous four matches before Saturday and failed to muster a shot on target against CSKA, who themselves were unable to find the breakthrough in what was somewhat of a tame affair, particularly for a derby. What it should do at least is give the players further motivation to get a positive result here, following an embarrassing 1-0 defeat to Avangard Kursk the week prior in the cup also. That said, CSKA have a perfect record in the Champions League so far this season, having won all four of their qualification matches, as well as commencing the groups with an away win at Benfica, coming from behind to win 2-1 in Portugal. United, though, are a level above that of Benfica and CSKA would probably settle for the same result as the last time United visited Moscow where they managed to hold Louis van Gaal’s team to a 1-1 draw. Scoring goals has been a real issue for the team in recent weeks, with CSKA managing just three strikes in their last five league outings.

CSKA Moscow Team News

Figueira Mario Fernandes (concussion) and Aleksandr Makarov (ankle) are both set to miss out for CSKA on Wednesday evening.

Manchester United Preview

It may not have been the free-flowing Manchester United we have become somewhat used to see this season so far, but that won’t have taken any satisfaction away from Jose Mourinho after his team won 1-0 away to Southampton on Saturday afternoon. Romelu Lukaku scored the game’s only goal in the 20th minute after beating Fraser Forster at the second time of asking. Southampton dominated the second half and will be wondering how they were unable to score despite creating a number of openings, as United held on for an important, if not spectacular three points. It was the fourth win on the trot for Mourinho’s side in all competitions, as they look to keep pace with Manchester City, who were 5-0 winners at the weekend. United failed to win an away game in the group stages the last time they were in the Champions League, taking just a point from three matches, although this United team is a far different animal now than under Louis van Gaal. With all three of CSKA’s back three aged 35+, the likes of Lukaku, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial will be licking their lips at the prospect of using their blistering pace to expose the Russian’s aging defence.

Manchester United Team News

Marcos Rojo (cruciate ligament), Paul Pogba (hamstring) and Zlatan Ibrahimovic (knee) are all missing once again for United.
