Manchester United VS Cska Moscow: Champions League prediction, team news and how to watch on TV and online

The Red Devils need only to avoid disaster to ensure they progress to the Champions League knockout stage but will have to deal with injuries




Only a heavy defeat will prevent Manchester United from qualifying for the next round of the Champions League when they host CSKA Moscow on Tuesday.

The Red Devils' 12 points so far mean they need only one more to claim top spot, with a 6-0 defeat and a complex three-way tiebreaker the only way in which they could be denied a place in the knockout stage.

They may have to make it through the match with a patched-together squad, however, as they battle injury problems ahead of this weekend's derby against Manchester City.
