Manchester United will take on CSKA Moscow in the midweek Champions League clash at Old Trafford on 3 November, Tuesday.

Where to watch live

Kick-off is at 7.45pm GMT. Live coverage of the match will be available on BT Sport Europe.


United come into this fixture after a disappointing 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. Louis van Gaal saw his side put in a poor display during their trip to London, which resulted in a fourth consecutive draw in all competitions.

The Premier League outfit have not found the back of the net in the last three matches as all of these fixtures have ended in a goalless draw. United will be hoping to end their goal drought when they face the Russian club on Tuesday.

In the last Champions League fixture, United took on CSKA and the match ended in a 1-1 draw in Russia. Anthony Martial scored a header to help his side avoid a second defeat in Europe's elite club competition.

What managers say

Louis van Gaal: "When I see their characters, I don't think they have doubts about that quality. It can change in one match - let that be CSKA, because we need victory. I have to hope we score against Moscow again because then we are talking in a different way."

Leonid Slutsky: "In the Champions League we are trying to do it as good as possible and we will do our best to move forward. It is clear that Manchester United is very good in possession and all I can say is that we will play on the break. Manchester United is a team that can score at any time, at any club whatsoever."
