Manchester United vs CSKA Moscow 5 December 2017: UCL Preview and Prediction

Manchester United will be at home as they take on Russian side CSKA Moscow at Old Trafford. This is a big game for the away side since a win will give them a good chance of making the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League.

CSKA Moscow have had a decent tournament managing to get three wins from the opening 6 games. As it currently stands, they are even with FC Basel on points but they must win to keep their dream alive since FC Basel have a much easier game which they should not win. I am expecting CSKA Moscow to come out positively since they must win and that should mean we will get a really interesting game of football.

On the other side of the coin, Manchester United will be full of confidence but will know that a loss might knock them off top spot in the group. This is a team that is filled with superstars but I am not sure if they will play their best team since the Red Devils play Manchester City this weekend and that is a big game. Pogba will play but the rest may not since this should be a game that even the reserve Manchester United side should win.

As far as results are concerned, I think Manchester United will win this game quite easily. The Red Devils are the better side and at home this should be an easy win for them. Betting on Manchester United to win this game is not the best option due to the price but I like the over 2.5 goals since both teams will try to score goals and get the win.
