CSKA Moscow vs Manchester United Live on Different TV Channels: Champions League 2009-10

Manchester United is going to visit CSKA Moscow tomorrow (21 October 2009) in their third group match of UEFA Champions League. Manchester won both of their Champions league games so far, and thus, leading the Group B with 6 points, while the Russian outfit has managed 3 points thanks to a win over Beşiktaş at home after losing to Wolfsburg on the road in their opening match.

CSKA Moscow will have home advantage, but given the recent form of United, it is pretty much understandable that the English champions are favorite against the Russian side. Manchester United has been Premier league champions for the last 3 seasons, while the Moscow-based club finished second in the Russian premier league last season. Manchester United will be full of confident after last Saturday’s 2-1 win over Bolton Wanderers, a win with which the Red Devils moved to the top of the point table surpassing Chelsea.

On the other hand, CSKA Moscow is not in good position in their domestic league. They are now in the fourth place with 43 points, 7 points adrift of leader Rubin Kazan with 5 matches left in the season. It is less likely that CSKA Moscow will be able to retain the league title this season. So, they would rather like to show something impressive in Europe. So, they would definitely try their best to clinch 3 points against United in front of home crowd. At least a point would be satisfactory for the Russian club.

Manchester United, however, would not be happy with 1 point as they are eyeing on 3 points from the game. The added motivation is that goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar has come back after recovering his injury. Football fans are very much excited with the game. Here, I am going to mention the television channels which will telecast the match live for their viewers:

Sky Sports 2 TV Channel

English football fans can watch the match live on Sky Sports 2 television channel. Football fans from some other European counties can also watch the match live on this channel. So, those who will be able to visit Moscow can enjoy the match live on Sky Sports which is one of the most popular sports channels in Europe.

So, you can expect quality coverage of the match from Ten Sports.

It covers many sports and important tournaments through its several channels. Its main viewers are from Africa, but the channel has attracted many viewers from Asia too. It is true that Super Sports is not available in many Asian countries yet, but the channel has already created an appeal among the Asian sports lovers, mainly because of their coverage of several sports.
