Man Utd v CSKA Moscow betting preview


Manchester United have secured their route through to the Champions League Round of 16 as their head-to-head results against Basel will see them finish at least second, regardless of the result in this clash and after a 1-4 mauling of CSKA Moscow in the first meeting between these two sides, it would take a majorly shocking result to stop the Red Devils from finishing top of the group and setting up an easier tie in the first knock-out round of this season's UCL.

In the Premier League, Jose Mourinho's men have certainly improved on their performances from the Portuguese head coach's first season in charge where they finished down in 6th place as they currently sit in second place in the English top tier. Unfortunately as far as the Old Trafford faithful are concerned, cross-town rivals Manchester City are looking comfortable at the top though, with a huge gap opening up between the two sides. The Red Devils should win out here at 2/5 with BetVictor.

CSKA Moscow were expected to struggle in this Champions League group, but instead they find themselves just behind Basel going into the final game of the group stages with both sides sitting on nine points with five games played. The Russian side have shocked both the Swiss side and the group's whipping boys Benfica away from home and as such they can still qualify for the knock-out stages, although it seems a difficult ask as they head to Old Trafford on the final group stage game.

Domestically, Krasno-sinie have been a little off the pace so far this season and with 19 games on the board they find themselves in third place, seven points behind league leaders and city rivals Lokomotiv Moscow. Having won three consecutive league games though, they'll be hoping to take some momentum into this difficult trip to England to take the three points they need at odds of 7/1 with Coral to put the pressure on Basel, who face Benfica.

For us though, United should be able to ease to the win in this game. They've looked very strong going forward of late, racking up 12 goals in their last four Premier League outings and away from home, they managed to put four past CSKA in a very comfortable win. The Russian side will face a tough evening in trying to keep out the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial and we're backing the hosts to be too strong for the visitors and earn a home win at odds of 6/5 with Ladbrokes.

Jesse Lingard has enjoyed a fine week in front of goal, scoring a fine goal in last week's away win over Watford before bagging a brace in United's terrific win over Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday evening. The 24 year old has never been the most prolific of players in the Red Devils squad, but he's playing with real confidence at the moment and he'll be hoping to continue this hot streak in front of goal with another in this game at odds of 13/5 with Paddy Power.

Recommended bets:
Man Utd to win -1 @ 6/5 with Ladbrokes
Jesse Lingard to score at any time @ 13/5 with Paddy Power
