Preview: Manchester City vs. CSKA Moscow

Sports Mole looks ahead to Tuesday night's Champions League Group D match as Manchester City host CSKA Moscow.

Manchester City will look to keep up the pressure on Bayern Munich at the top of Champions League Group D when they host CSKA Moscow at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday night.

Defending champions Bayern have won all three of their first group games to sit three points clear of City, whom they meet at the Allianz Arena on the final matchday.

City's narrow win in the Russian capital a fortnight ago was marred by some racist abuse directed towards Yaya Toure, with CSKA since being given a partial stadium ban.

Manuel Pellegrini's side will go into the match in confident mood after obliterating Norwich City 7-0 in the Premier League at the weekend.

Despite this, manager Pellegrini is likely to make a host of changes to his side, with Joe Hart likely to come back between the sticks after being dropped for Costel Pantilimon against the Canaries.

CSKA, meanwhile, have won all three of their matches in the Russian top flight since being edged out by City.
