UEFA Champs League: Musa Bullish Ahead Clash With Man. City

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.
