CSKA Moscow watch

Ahead of United's October 21 trip to Moscow, we'll be keeping a close eye on opponents CSKA to see how they're getting on.
While the reds were playing City, CSKA were playing their own city derby against Dinamo Moscow
After a lifeless first half, home side CSKA sparked into life and wrapped up a 3-0 win.

The match was played at the Luzkniki Stadium - the scene of United's 2008 Champions League final win against Chelsea.
As you may notice, it looks a bit empty during Sunday's game, but will be a 60,000 sell out (segregation allowing) when United play there.
CSKA's win leaves them in third place in the Russian Premier League on 39 points from 22 games. Two months remain in the season.
