–Says CSKA know Citizens’ weak points
Striker Ahmed Musa has warned Manchester City that CSKA Moscow are ready to expose the “very weak defence” of the Premier League champions to gain revenge for the defeats of last year.
The Russian side go into this game having lost their first two Champions League games and were defeated on the two occasions they faced the Blues last season.
But Musa, fresh from scoring two in a 6-0 league win on Saturday, reckons City are not as good as they were.
“We’re going to use that advantage because in the couple of two games they played they are not that good,” he said.
“We know their weak point – they are very weak in their defence – so we are going to try to do our best to work against that.
“We know a lot about them so we are going to try to do our best to fix what was decided last year. We are going to fix it tomorrow.”
Asked if City were weaker than Bayern Munich – who CSKA lost to 1-0 in their last game –
Nigerian forward Musa said: “Yes, that is true. As you can see they are very weak this year so we are going to try and use that advantage against them.
CSKA did take the lead when the teams met at the Khimki Arena last year when former Manchester United winger Zoran Tosic scored.
But a quickfire double from Sergio Aguero secured the points for City, and they hammered the Russian champions 5-2 at the Etihad.
