UEFA Champions League: Manchester United vs. CSKA Moscow


Manchester United takes on Russian powerhouse CSKA Moscow with confidence this evening (20:45 CET) having beaten them 1-0 on October 21st in the Russian capital.

The Red Devils are on top of Group B with a 100 percent record, and will book their place in the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League if they beat the Russians at Old Trafford.

With doubts over Wayne Rooney and Dimitar Berbatov, Michael Owen is set to lead the line against the Army Men.

Former Tottenham manager Juande Ramos has been dismissed and new coach Leonid Slutsky will take charge for Moscow tonight.

CSKA have a decent form in the Russian Premier League, and with players like Dzagoev, Guilherme and Krasic up front, they should be able to score. However, they face a tough task tonight as United are unbeaten in their last 22 Champions League games at home.

UPDATE: The Red Devils secured their spot in the last 16 of the Champions League with a thrilling 3-3 draw with CSKA Moscow.
