CSKA Moscow vs Manchester United – UEFA Champions League:After starting off with a win on this Champions League…
CSKA and Manchester United will face off in Russia. Of the two results, the most impressive one was definitely CSKA’s win over Benfica, even more because the match was played in Portugal.
CSKA reached the Champions’ League group stage after eliminating both AEK Athens and Switzerland’s Young Boys in the qualifying stage.
the team has won every match they played in the edition of the Champions League. They’ve got 4 wins in the qualifying stage and then won against Benfica on their debut in the group stage.
On the domestic league, CSKA isn’t doing so well. The Russian team sits only in 4th place of the league table, with 20 points gained, 7 points behind leader Zenit.
Their home record is just average, with 3 wins and 3 losses and a goal record of 8 goals scored and 7 goals conceded.

CSKA Moscow vs Manchester United – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Manchester United started the season in a fantastic way, despite the loss against Real Madrid on the European Supercup, which is curiously their only loss on the season so far.
We can’t deny that their start was much more solid than last year’s. On the Premier League, the team sits in 2nd place but they have the same points as leaders Manchester City.
The team still has some absences like Pogba for example. I expect a typical Mourinho match here.
United should start with a very solid defensive line, worrying more about not conceding than scoring, banking on a strong marking.
CSKA has surely left a good impression against Benfica.
But this is Manchester United we are talking about. I don’t believe that the Russians go on the attack inconsequentially here.
Therefore, I believe in a low-scoring match.
