CSKA Moscow manager Leonid Slutsky says that he is confident that his team have learned from their mistakes committed in the first few matches of the Champions League group stages.

The Russian team were not given much of an opportunity to reach the last 16 stage of the competition due to being placed in one of the toughest groups. The likes of Bayern Munich, Roma, and Manchester City are seen as the competitors for the top two places, which will guarantee progression to the next round. CSKA have so far kept their hopes of qualification alive, but it has largely been due to other teams dropping points.

A 5-1 hammering at the hands of Roma in the opening group match threatened to end the qualification hopes even before it began, but Leonid Slutsky’s has managed to provide new confidence to the team. They have since suffered only one defeat while also managing to pick up crucial win over Manchester City away from home. This has put the team on the brink of getting into the top two places with two matches remaining. They need to get three points against Roma at home in order to stand any chance of an unlikely miracle.Slutsky says that the lessons learned from the first game will help them get three points.

“We have a good chance of qualifying from the group and we need to use this opportunity. We know from our first match against Roma that they are a very strong side.Tomorrow’s match will show if we have learned from our mistakes.We have problems in defensive midfield and we are looking to solve this.The loss of Natkho is a blow, and tonight we will know if Pontus Wernbloom will be able to play,” said Slutsky ahead of the game.
