Manchester United vs CSKA Moscow Preview

Manchester United vs CSKA Moscow

Competition – UEFA Champions League

Stadium – Old Trafford

Date: 5th December 2017

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Manchester United’s triumph over Arsenal at the weekend is arguably the win of the season so far.

The Red Devils ran out 1-3 winners but in truth if there was no David de Gea, the Red Devils may have ended that game as the losing side.

Jose Mourinho will now demand for more of this from his stars as we head into the festive period.

United have failed to impress at times this season and lost their last Champions League game at Basel which means they need to get at least a point in this game to confirm their qualification to the next round.

Their win over the Gunners made it three wins in their last three games and they are expected get another win here by bookmakers and fans alike.

They would need to lose by at least 7 goals for them to miss out on qualification.

CSKA Moscow do not have their own destiny in their hands at the moment as they need a slip up by Basel against a Benfica side that has taken no points so far for them to qualify as second in the group.

CSKA have beaten Benfica home and away, winning at Basel also.

They lost their home game against Manchester United 4-1 and they now visit Old Trafford where United have not lost a game in 11 attempts.

CSKA has lost three and drawn two of their last five meetings with Manchester United.
