Super Eagles of Nigeria and CSKA Moscow of Russia striker, Ahmed Musa is upbeat that his team can defeat Manchester City FC England when both teams clash Tuesday in a UEFA Champions League match billed for Russia.
Musa’s CSKA Moscow were beaten 1-0 by Bayern on Matchday Two after a heavy loss to Roma in their opening Group B game, but the former Kano Pillars’ forward is optimistic about their chances against City.
“For me, Manchester City are a weaker side than Bayern. They are not as strong as they were a year ago, and we can exploit that, we have quick, experienced players and we can have a great match. I think we will get a result. Tuesday is our last chance to qualify for the next phase of the Champions League, and a big league win against Kuban has left us feeling positive,’’ an optimistic Musa said at a press conference.
CSKA Moscow were beaten 2-1 at home against Manchester City last season, before recording a 5-2 defeat in Manchester.
