So Manchester United's quest to qualify for the Champions League knock out stages is looking a lot healthier after tonight. A much-improved performance from Wayne Rooney helped his side clinch a narrow but deserved victory over CSKA Moscow, with the skipper himself getting the goal after nodding in Jesse Lingard's fine cross.

Manchester City meanwhile have secured their place in the last 16 already. They became the first team to beat Sevilla on their own turf in this competition with a hugely impressive 3-1 win, in which they took a two goal lead within 10 minutes. Juventus were held to a 1-1 draw with Borussia Monchengladbach, a result that ensured Manuel Pellegrini's side qualified for the knockout stages in record time.

It was a rather tepid affair elsewhere in Europe this evening. Despite all the firepower on show, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain fought out another quiet battle with Nacho Fernandez grabbing the winner.

Manchester United find themselves top of Group A tonight thanks to PSV Eindhoven beating Wolfsburg 2-0 at home, but things remain finely poised with just three points the difference between all four teams.

Now Young wants a penalty! He won't get it, however, and the referee has made the correct call again; Young was well on his way down well before Akinfeev made contact with him.

United pass up their best chance of the game! Lingard does brilliantly down the left, finding Mata who has pulled out towards the near post. Mata turns inside and manages to play the ball across the face of goal to Rooney, who can't sort his feet out and lets the chance bypass him.

Rooney is down in the box, but he won't get a penalty. There was slight contact from the CSKA defender as the United skipper tried to force his way towards the six yard area but not enough to send him to the turf.

About 20 minutes remaining in our games this evening. United need a goal, but are looking really devoid of ideas. The shouts of 'Attack Attack Attack' from the Old Trafford faithful are growing louder and louder.

Louis van Gaal must have read that last post. Martial is off, with Marouane Fellaini coming onto replace the Frenchman. And there are some boos ringing around Old Trafford as the teenager departs.

Anthony Martial, so often United's source of inspiration since his arrival at the club, have endured a relatively poor evening tonight. He's been wasteful in possession and struggled to hold his line, drifting offside when he shouldn't far too often.

PSV Eindhoven have taken the lead against Wolfsburg, that leaves all four sides - as it stands - all within a point of each other.

United have lost that swift, attacking verve in the first 15 minutes of this half, they are still dominating possession but are struggling to break down the Russians, just as they did in Moscow two weeks ago.

Juventus have equalised away to Borussia Monchengladbach through Stephan Lichtsteiner this evening while Shakhtar Donetsk are cruising at home to Malmo, leading 3-0.

United force a corner in the final moments of the half but make a right mess of it. That's half time at Old Trafford.

United are still in search of their first of the evening but it looks like they might have to wait for the second half; we're into added time at Old Trafford.

City have their two-goal lead back and they can have Joe Hart to thank for it. The England goalkeeper launches the ball out quickly to Jesus Navas who tees Bony up expertly to finish.

Real Madrid have taken the lead in the most eye-catching fixture of the evening against Paris Saint-Germain with Nacho Fernandez putting the La Liga giants ahead.

Oh what a goal that would have been. United move the ball around swiftly, moving it neatly from left to right, finding Young. He swings in a beauty of a cross which Rojo gets on the end of near the far post and opts to smash a first time volley on goal. His radar is off however and he can only slam it into the advertising boards.

Young plays a neat one two with Rooney creeping up the byline on the right and arrows an inviting ball across goal. It bypasses everyone but Lingard who pops up at the far post but he blazes a poor effort over the bar.

Martial is penalised for pulling the shirt of his opponent out on the wing. The Frenchman protests, but the ripped shirt hanging off the CSKA defender suggests he was probably in the wrong.

Bastian Schweinsteiger glides forward, skipping past challenges before he is clipped about 30 yards out from goal to the left. Rooney swings one in, looking to get the ball to bounce off the slippery turf, and finds Smalling, who can't direct his header on target.

Sevilla have pulled one back through Benoit Tremoulinas who was placed to slam a header home from close range.

Goa! Sevilla 1-2 Manchester City (Benoit Tremoulinas)

There's a bit of a lull in the game at Old Trafford at the minute. United are still comfortably in control, dominating possession while playing in a much more stylish 4-4-2 formation.

More good news for City, Borussia Monchengladbach have taken the lead against Juventus, Fabian Johnson giving his side the opener after 19 minutes.

United are swarming forward in numbers at every opportunity with Rojo, who barely crossed the half way line in Moscow two weeks ago, bombing forward at will.

United are still ticking along nicely, too. Blind almost picks Mata out with one of his trademark raking long passes, finding the Spaniard's run brilliantly but he can't quite get the right contact on the ball.

Jesus Navas almost makes it three for Manchester City! He's denied by the post. As it stands, Manuel Pellegrini's side are top of Group D.

Man City aren't messing around this evening. Minutes after Raheem Sterling coolly slotted his side ahead Fernandinho, the man who provided the assist for the first, is on the scene to head home from close range.

Goal! Sevilla 0-2 Manchester City (Fernandinho)

Goal! Sevilla 0-1 Manchester City (Raheem Sterling)

United want a penalty after Lingard is felled in the box. Well, it's more their supporters, really. Rooney recieves the ball just on the edge of the box and brilliantly slides a ball through for Lingard but Akinfeev just gets to the ball first and can bat the ball away. Rooney in particular has started excellently this evening.

It's been a really positive start from United, they are pinging the ball around nicely at pace and it almost forces Akinfeev into an erroer after a sloppy backpass but he manages to clear.

First chance of the match falls to United as Carrick switches the ball to Lingard who finds Rojo down the left flank. He drives a ball across goal and Rooney can bring it down on the edge of the D and belt one on goal but it veers just wide of the post.

A minute into the match at Old Trafford and the first chants of 'Attack Attack Attack' can be heard.

And we are off and underway at Old Trafford and elsewhere across Europe.

Not long until kick off now with both teams about to make their way out from the tunnel at Old Trafford. We'll have updates from Sevilla v Manchester City and the rest of our games across Europe this evening.

Despite that disappointing start against Juventus, Manchester City have recovered well since and sit just behind the Bianconeri in Group D on six points, three ahead of tonight's opponent.

United also sit in second, just about mind you, on four points along with CKSA with PSV Eindhoven just a point behind. Wolfsburg are the only side in the group to have taken two wins so far.

Manchester City meanwhile are looking to become the first team to beat Sevilla at home in this competition and have picked a very sturdy looking side to cope with the Andalucians. Otamendi, Kompany, Fernando and Fernandinho all provide plently of steel in the spine of their line up.

Memphis meanwhile is fit enough for the bench but Morgan Schneiderlin has been given the night off.

So, Wayne Rooney - it looks like - will keep his spot at the focal point of United's attack this evening with Mata and Martial providing support. Jesse Lingard remains firmly in the manager's plans and comes back in tonight while Ashley Young, who coped far better than Darmian against the pace and trickery of Crystal Palace at the weekend, comes in at right back.

BREAKING: Vincent Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi start at the heart of CIty's defence

City team to face Sevilla: Hart, Sagna, Otamendi, Kompany (C), Kolarov, Fernando, Fernandinho, Toure, Navas, Sterling, Bony

Subs: Caballero, Clichy, Demichelis, Mangala, Delph, Barker, De Bruyne

BREAKING: Manchester United make three changes as Ashley Young, Michael Carrick and Jesse Lingard come in for Darmian, Schneiderlin and Herrera. Anthony Martial looks like he will start out wide again.

United team to face CSKA: De Gea; Young, Smalling, Blind, Rojo; Schweinsteiger, Carrick; Lingard, Mata, Martial; Rooney.

Subs: Romero, Jones, Darmian, Pereira, Herrera, Memphis, Fellaini.

Today's early game has already finished with minnows FC Astana holding Spanish giants Atletico Madrid. In addition to the Manchester clubs and their opponents, there are 10 other teams in action tonight.

Real Madrid v Paris Saint-Germain
Shakhtar Donetsk v Malmo
PSV Eindhoven v Wolfsburg
Benfica v Galatasaray
Borussia Monchengladbach v Juventus

Anthony Martial has spent the last few weeks playing out wide. As Seamus Coleman learned, he isn't half bad out there, but the young Frenchman is keen to play as a centre forward again, according to his manager.

He is very young but I think it is better he develops in the striker's position. But he can play left, striker and number. He doesn't want to play number seven but I am convinced he can. That's another story.

TEAM NEWS - Manchester United: Morgan Scheiderlin is a doubt for tonight's game after missing training on Monday due to personal reasons but Louis van Gaal has not ruled him out playing tonight. Memphis Depay, who was left out of the Netherlands squad this week after Danny Blind said the winger struggled to 'function' in a team, trained on his own Monday but also remains a doubt after missing Saturday's draw with Crystal Palace.

Phil Jones, who missed the stalemate at Selhurst Park is fit again

TEAM NEWS - CSKA Moscow: Experienced defender Aleksei Berezutski and midfielder Roman Eremenko are both doubts for the visiting side tonight, who held United to a 3-3 draw in their last visit to Old Trafford.
