Manchester United vs CSKA Moscow predictions- Manchester United played their part in one of the games of the season in the Premier League on Saturday evening, beating Arsenal 3-1 in a game that was full of end to end action. In all honesty the scoreline could have been anything, and Jose Mourinho will be hoping for more of the same going forward but with a more composed defensive attitude.
That victory made it three on the bounce for a Manchester United side who have faltered a couple of times over the past month or so. One of these was a 1-0 loss away to Basel in their last Champions League outing, which means they haven’t quite sealed the top spot in this group yet.
The Red Devils are hot favourites to qualify top though. They are three points ahead of both Basel and CSKA Moscow below them and have a greater head to head record than the Swiss side, so a point would be enough on Tuesday. It’s unlikely to see them settling for a draw though, and we can expect a lot of the regular starters to take part thanks to their loss to Basel. Theoretically it is still possible for them to fail to qualify, but would require them to lose by seven or more goals against CSKA and see Basel beat Benfica.

CSKA Moscow have it all to play for though. They trail Basel on head to head in the quest for second place, and will be sorely hoping that the Swiss side slip up against a Benfica side who are yet to win a point in this group. The Portuguese failures do mean that CSKA Moscow’s European adventures will continue, but at the moment it’s looking more likely to be in the Europa League than the Champions League.
So far the Russians have beaten Benfica twice and Basel away from home, but their hosting of Manchester United is an ominous sign for this trip to Old Trafford. They lost 4-1 at home, and now face a Manchester United side who have won their last 11 competitive home games.
The hosts have conceded in just two of these matches and have scored a total of 29 goals at home this season, winning eight of their ten home matches by at least a two goal margin. Given how the match in Moscow played out, and Manchester United’s return to scoring ways in the last week, backing a Manchester United -1.5 Asian Handicap looks a great choice here along with a 3-0 correct score predictions.
We’re opting for Anthony Martial to find the net as well. The young Frenchman put in a stunning display against Arsenal and has now scored seven goals this season. He has been preferred over Marcus Rashford recently and has started four of their five Champions League games, so he looks the best value option on Tuesday.
