Despite having to travel to Moscow and deal with all the usual weather and pitch condition issues of Moscow in late November, there's little reason to believe that Bayern won't be able to get the three points they need. CSKA Moscow have only managed one win so far in the group stages, and they are tied with fellow group bottom dweller Viktoria Plzen for the most goals allowed in the tournament with 12.
Bayern will have to deal with a few injury issues though including the loss of Mario Mandžukić to a calf injury, but there depth should be sufficient to see them through with Thomas Müller likely to start up front.
CSKA Moscow injuries and suspensions
Out: Alan Dzagoev (hamstring), Aleksandrs Cauna (toe). In Doubt: Seydou Doumbia (knock).
