CSKA Moscow – Manchester United (Champions League)

CSKA Moscow and Manchester United have won their respective matches in the first round of this group stage, and now face each other at the VEB Arena for the 2nd round of Group A of the Champions League. The Russian side come here motivated after a rather unexpected triumph against Benfica, in Portugal, wining by 1-2. Manchester United, on their turn, have been in superb form since the start of the season and arrive not only as leaders of the english Premier League, but also as leaders of this Group A, after a comfortable victory at home against FC Basel.

CSKA Moscow are in the 2nd position in this Group A, result of 1 victory, with 2 goals scored and 1 conceded. The Russians have reached this group stage for a few times in recent years, but have always struggled to advance into the round of 16, although this year they have made a good start in the competition and are motivated after an away victory against Benfica, where they caught the Portuguese side in a bad moment of form and knew how to take advantage of it. Still, after that victory in Portugal, the Soldiers have only won 1 of the following 3 matches, in the home competitions, wining against Rostov, but falling at the hands of Kursk, for the Russian Cup, and drawing in the last round against Dinamo Moscow.

This Russian side have already tasted defeat three times this season in the Russian Premier League, and all those defeats were suffered at home, with this team showing better results away from home, than at home soil. The Soldiers shown quality and speed in their attack against Benfica, but here they will face one of Europe’s giants in a superb form and with world-class players, which will be a huge test for the Russian defensive organization.

In their last 5 official matches, CSKA Moscow has a record of 3 wins, 1 draw and 1 defeat. This sequence of results started with a 0-1 victory against Amkar. This result was followed by a 1-2 victory against Benfica, for the Champions League, a 2-0 win against Rostov, a 0-1 defeat against Kursk, for the Russia Cup, and in their last round, a 0-0 draw against Dinamo Moscow. Mario Fernandes is out due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Akinfeev – Vasin, Berezutski and Berezutski – Nababkin, Wernbloom, Natkho and Schennikov – Dzagoev, Vitinho and Golovin.

champions leagueManchester United, on their turn, are at the top of Group A, also with 3 points, result of 1 victory, with 3 goals scored and no goals conceded. José Mourinho is doing an amazing job at the helm of this Manchester side, with the team being great in every competition they play, leading the english Premier League along with Manchester City, went through the 4th round of the EFL Cup, and got a very comfortable victory at home against FC Basel, by 3-0. Away from home, the Red Devils have only played 3 games, winning 2 and drawing the other one, scoring 7 goals and conceding only 2 in the process.

Manchester United have won all the three games they have played since the victory in the 1st round of Group A, scoring 9 goals and conceding only 1 goal in the process.

They also very strong in creating chances through individual skill, thanks to Martial, Rashford, Mkhitaryan, among others, who are all highly evolved technically, being capable of unbalancing any defensive sector. Lukaku is their offensive reference, being the english Premier League’s top scorer with 9 goals scored.

In their last 5 official matches, Manchester United has a record of 4 victories and 1 draw. This sequence of results started with a 2-2 draw against Stoke City.
