Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa will be on parade with his club CSKA Moscow when they welcome Manchester United tonight in Russia during match day three of UEFA Champions League.
Still relishing a superb form which enabled them beat PSV 3-2 away on match day two, Moscow will hope to confront rivals United that also defeated Wolfsburg weeks ago in group B.
Both teams have three points from two games and will come into the tie on the back of impressive wins in their respective league games at the weekend.
However, CSKA are unbeaten at home in this season so far having played a 2-2 draw with AC Sparta Praha and beaten Sporting Clube de Portugal 3-1 in the qualifying rounds, before overcoming PSV.
Last year, CSKA came from two goals down to hold United’s neighbours Manchester City FC 2-2 at home.
Also, CSKA are six games unbeaten since their matchday one defeat.
Wernbloom’s goal in the 2-0 success at FC Dinamo Moskva on 4 October was his first since the final day of last season. He scored again to beat Ural 3-2 at the weekend.
On the other hand, United have lost their last three away games in the UEFA Champions League proper, although they did win 4-0 at Club Brugge KV in the play-offs.
United have won only one of seven matches, home and away, against Russian opposition.
United won their third European Cup at Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium in 2008, beating Chelsea on penalties in a match which Wayne Rooney and Michael Carrick started.
United’s run of four successive wins ended when they lost 3-0 to Arsenal two weeks ago.
