The attempt to watch the game from a tower block is due to a UEFA ban on supporters at CSKA’s stadium. The ban was put in place after there had been three instances of racist chanting at the ground, the first of which was directed at City’s Yaya Toure in the same fixture last season.
In Bayern Munich’s game in Moscow a few weeks ago, a group of fans managed to get around the ban by hiring a room in a nearby block of flats and watching from there.
This time however, Citizens supporters’ attempts to do the same were quashed, with many having already bought flights and accommodation before the ban was announced.
City play CSKA tonight in a game seen as a must win, as they were only able to get one point from their first two games.
