Champions League Group Stage
Man. Utd. VS CSKA Moscow
Things looked bleak for Manchester United and their Champions League campaign even at home.
Almost a year ago to the day, CSKA had plunged Manchester City’s Champions League campaign into peril with a 2-1 win across the city at Etihad Stadium.
With star striker Doumbia – who scored both of the goals in that win – left on the bench the Russian side initially looked unlikely to repeat such a heist.
But the Ivorian’s arrival after 55 minutes added an attacking edge and brought the visitors out of their shell. A game which had been comfortable for United up until that point suddenly started to change.
