Sports Mole previews CSKA Moscow and Viktoria Plzen's battle a place in the Europa League.

A place in the Europa League will be at stake when Viktoria Plzen host CSKA Moscow in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Both sides have already been eliminated from Europe's top club competition, but just three points separate the two in the Group D table.

The Russian team's only win of this season's group stage came against the Czech champions earlier in the campaign, when they clinched a 3-2 victory.

CSKA are likely to still be without striker Seydou Doumbia, who sustained a thigh injury during their last Champions League match, while Aleksandrs Cauna will also be absent.

Plzen will secure third place in the group at CSKA's expense if they win by more than one goal, or by a 1-0 or 2-1 scoreline.

Last time out, Tomas Horava and Stanislav Tecl both scored for Plzen in their 4-2 defeat to Manchester City.
