Follow the latest news and score as Manchester City take on CSKA Mosow in the Russian capital.

The Premier League champions face CSKA in their next two European games and Manuel Pellegrini will have targeted six points from those matches after a less than convincing start in Group E.

Pellegrini’s side have picked up just one point from their opening two Champions League matches, and a pair of wins against the Russian side will give City strong hope of challenging Bayern Munich and Roma for progression to the knockout stages. 

City completed the double over CSKA at this stage of last season’s competition, and the Argentinean understands the importance of repeat back-to-back wins against the group’s pointless side.

The game in CSKA’s Arena Khimki stadium will be played behind closed doors after the Russian club was hit with a three-game stadium ban by UEFA for repeated racist abuse from their supporters.

  • Match kicked off at 5pm
  • Manchester City leading 2-0 at half-time
  • Game being played behind closed doors

CSKA Moscow: Akinfeev, Fernandes, V. Berezutski, Ignashevich, Shchennikov, A. Berezutski, Natcho, Tosic, Eremenko, Milanov, Musa.

Manchester City: Hart, Kolarov, Mangala, Kompany, Zabaleta, Fernando, Toure, Milner, Silva, Dzeko, Aguero
