Manchester United produced an efficient and controlled performance at the Luzhniki Stadium to beak CSKA Moscow 1-0. Injuries, weather and a plastic playing pitch meant that United were always going to play controlled rather than expansive football, but all the players did their jobs well (with Fabio particularly impressing from full-back).

The Italian hosts are currently the best side in Serie A, according to Bayern head coach Jupp Heynckes. He believes that Napoli do not play the traditional Italian way, and instead of setting up a side to be broken down and hit on the counter, they're a team with a lot of attacking options and have shown that so far this season.

Ireland winger Aiden McGeady scored an injury-time winner from the penalty spot as Spartak Moscow edged past Rostov 2-1 in the Premier Liga clash at the Luzhniki Stadium.

The home side had gone behind to Anri Khagush's 24th-minute strike. However, Welliton equalised shortly before the break when McGeady got past two Rostov defenders to send over a cross for Welliton to head home just before half time, and when referee Alexander Gvardis pointed to the spot in the dying seconds, McGeady kept his cool to convert his second goal for Spartak since his nine and a half million pound move from Celtic.
