Man Utd vs CSKA Moscow: Match Preview, Team News & STARTING Line-up


Manchester United host Russian side CSKA Moscow at Old Trafford on match Day 4 looking to return to winning ways after recording no wins and no goal in their last 3 games. The red devil will need to win this match to lift the spirit at Old Trafford which has gone down after exiting the Capital one cup to Championship side Middlesbrough on Wednesday and escaping Selhurst Park with an undeserved point.

Both teams are joint second in the group with 4 points apiece while CSKA Moscow top United by virtue of a better goal scored ration; German side Wolfsburg currently top the standing with 6 points from 3 games while Dutch side PSV Eindhoven  on 3 points courtesy of their famous 2-1 win on match Day 1 against the red devils.


Manchester united would look to continue their 100% record in Europe at home this season; Louis Van Gaal has won 2 of his previous Home matches in Europe against Belgium side Club Brugge 3-1 and Wolfsburg of Germany 2-1. The red devils have struggled to find the back of the net in their last 3 matches and would be hoping to correct that against their Russian counterpart.


Manchester united may not have new injury worries after their game against crystal palace at the weekend. Memphis Depay and Antonio Valencia may be back to match fitness and should make the bench but Luke Shaw and Paddy McNair are still out injured and will certainly miss the tie.
