Manchester United v CSKA Moscow Betting Tips Explained


Manchester United supporters are probably hoping they never have to visit Basel again, because the Swiss side have become the Red Devils’ bogey team in European competition. United’s perfect run in Group A was brought to a shuddering halt as they were beaten by Basel a fortnight ago, and as a result of that loss they still have some work to do as they look to book their place in the last-16 of the Champions League.

United are sitting atop Group A heading into Matchday Six, but with just three points separating them from Basel and CSKA Moscow they know that a defeat on Tuesday night could see them crash out of the competition and drop into the Europa League. Providing the opposition are one of the teams chasing them, CSKA Moscow, and the Russians find themselves in a tricky position. A defeat will send them into the Europe League, but they will advance into the last 16 of the Champions League if they better Basel’s result against Benfica.

So who will get the result they need on Tuesday night? I am going with Manchester United to return to winning ways against a team they thrashed 4-1 earlier in the group stage.

Manager Jose Mourinho will, of course, have one eye on Sunday’s huge Manchester derby clash with neighbours City, but he will still send out a strong line-up for this one and they should have enough about them to make it four straights wins in all competitions. United have been flawless at home this season, winning every single one of their competitive outings at Old Trafford, and the goals have been flowing with 29 scored and just two conceded. Those are statistics than cannot be ignored, even if Mourinho tweaks his team, so United winning a match that sees at least three goals looks to be a very solid bet for this Matchday Six clash.

And speaking of goals, my second recommendation for Tuesday night’s match is to back Marcus Rashford to get on the scoresheet for Manchester United. The England youngster saw the goals dry up during November as he was in an out of the starting XI, but he should get an opportunity to start against CSKA Moscow and he has bagged a couple of goals in the group stage of this competition already. Rashford should cause the Moscow defence all sorts of problems at Old Trafford and I would not be shocked to see him grab a goal to try to force his way into Mourinho’s derby day XI.
