CSKA Moscow will take on Manchester United in a Champions League Group B clash at Arena Khimki on 21 October.

Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 7:45pm BST. Live coverage of the match will be available on BT Sport Europe.


CSKA enter this fixture after a 3-2 victory over FC Ural in their last league clash. After losing to Wolfsburg in the opening Champions League fixture, they bounced back with a narrow 3-2 win over PSV in the second match.

So far, Leonid Viktorovich Slutsky's side have conceded three goals in the European competition in two matches. He will be looking to avoid a similar situation when his side host the Premier League giants.

Meanwhile, United come into this game after their comfortable 3-0 victory over Everton at Goodison Park. The result was a timely boost for Red Devils, following their disappointing defeat at the hands of Arsenal before the international break.

Morgan Schneiderlin opened the scoring by netting his first goal for Louis van Gaal's side before Ander Herrera doubled the lead. Wayne Rooney scored his second league goal against his former club, which saw Louis van Gaal's side seal the three points.

In the last Champions League clash, United came from behind to seal a 2-1 victory over Wolfsburg. That was their first win in the group stages of the competition following their defeat to PSV Eindhoven in the opening match.

What the managers say

Louis van Gaal: "It's the same amount of injuries so Luke Shaw, Paddy McNair and Ashley Young are not going with us. Willo was a little bit ill – Wilson as he is named but, for us, it is Willo – so he shall not travel with us. I'll take 20 players with me. It's a four-hour flight so, if a player gets ill, I have the other player in my environment."
