Super Eagles’ forward, Ahmed Musa has boasted that CSKA Moscow hopes to restore their Champions League campaign with an outright win over Champions, Bayern Munich on Tuesday.
Musa who grabbed a consolatory goal in CSKA Moscow’s 5-1 whitewashing Roma on Match Day 1, believed that the Russian Champions are capable of springing surprises against the star-studded Germans.
“We learnt a lot of things from the game against Roma and we have picked up from the walloping. I’m sure we will bounce back against the Germans. So, they should expect should expect a big fight from us,” said the Nigeria international.
CSKA are regarded as the weakest side in the group, following their loss to Roma a fortnight ago, and Bayern know they cannot afford to drop points in this fixture.
Bayern can ensure they take control of Group E at the Arena Khimki if they can follow up their last-gasp win over Manchester City in their opening fixture with another three points.
There will be no fans inside the Arena Khimki due to sanctions imposed for crowd misbehaviour last season.
Given the trouble CSKA followers caused in Rome during their opening game, the chances are the Moscow club will not play a single game in front of their own fans this campaign, which will further complicate matters for the side coached by Leonid Slutski.
