Manchester United vs CSKA Moscow Preview

Red Devils will look to secure qualification to the next round and will be wary of not showing complacency ahead of the Manchester derby.
The Red Devils go into the European tie following their enthralling 3-1 victory over Arsenal.

Despite leading Group A on 12 points, United have not yet mathematically qualified for the round of 16. A draw would be enough for the Red Devils to top the group.

If Basel fail to beat Benfica in the group’s other match, United would qualify regardless of their own result.

Moscow come into this one in good form, having won five and drawn one of their last six matches in all competitions.

Viktor Goncharenko’s side recorded their biggest victory since April 2016 on Friday night, beating FC Tosno 6-0 at home.

Manchester United were devastating in front of goal on Saturday, beating Arsenal 3-1 at the Emirates.
