The Nigeria international is optimistic about his side’s chances of getting a good result against the Premier League champions
Ahmed Musa is confident CSKA Moscow can get a good result in Tuesday’s Champions League match against Manchester City as he feels the Premier League outfit are not as good as Bayern Munich.
CSKA were beaten 1-0 by Bayern on matchday two after a heavy loss to Roma in their opening Group B game, but Musa 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,” the Nigeria international said at a press conference.
“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 [6-0] has left us feeling positive.
“We know Manchester City did not win their last two group stage games. We know their weaknesses – that their defence is not so strong – and we will do our best to win. We know them from last year and have studied them well, and we will do all we can to get a result.”
CSKA were beaten 2-1 at home against City last term, before recording a 5-2 defeat in Manchester.
