CSKA Moscow will be hoping to beat Manchester United to enhance their claims on a place in the last 16 of the Champions League and head into Wednesday’s match on the back of a 3-2 victory over Ural SR. That result kept Leonid Slutsky’s side in the driving seat where the Russian Premier League is concerned, but Group B is wide-open and the hosts will be hoping to claim 3 precious points in front of their fans at Arena Khimki.

Man Utd bounced back from a horror show at Arsenal to thump Everton 0-3 on Saturday and will be looking to carry that momentum into this game. It’s been a mixed bag for the Red Devils in the Champions League, after throwing away the lead to lose 2-1 at PSV, they came from behind to beat Wolfsburg by the same scoreline at Old Trafford, so Louis van Gaal will need to get his tactics spot on here.

The match will be shown live on BT Sport Europe from 19:45 (BST) and is sure to appeal to both casual punters and professional gamblers. Man Utd have been installed as favourites, but CSKA Moscow’s home advantage means this could be a close game and there is plenty of value to be had in the First Goalscorer market.

Goalscorer Second Chance

With 9 goals in 10 games since re-joining CSKA Moscow on loan, it’s Seydou Doumbia that is expected to be the main danger man for the hosts, though Ahmed Musa makes for an interesting alternative and has a knack of cutting in to get a shot off when fielded on the left flank. Winger Zoran Tosic may have extra motivation to score against his former employers and Bibras Natkho got 14 goals from 34 matches last season, so should also be considered along with Alan Dzagoev and Aleksandr Golovin.

Anthony Martial has scored 4 in his first 8 games for Manchester United, though is yet to get off the mark in Europe and was pushed out to the left flank against Everton. Wayne Rooney on the other hand has scored 3 from 3 appearances in the Champions League and may therefore be considered a better bet at longer odds. Both Juan Mata and Memphis Depay have been among the goals from midfield, as were Ander Herrera and Morgan Schneiderlin last time out against Everton.
