Prediction CSKA Moscow 0-1 Man Utd
Russian side holds an impressive record against Premier League sides at home, with two wins and one loss.
Traveling to Russia has proven to be anything other than pleasurable for foreign teams in recent years. The cold weather and lousy pitch conditions, combined with the long travel, play into the hands of the Russian teams.
Still, with the amount of class United possess, one would have to give them the slight edge over CSKA Moskva heading in to the match.
