Arsene Wenger has never won in three visits to Russia with Arsenal, however, his side take a three goal cushion into the game with goals from Aaron Ramsey and Alexandre Lacazette helping them romp to a 4-1 victory last week.

Possibly the only regret was that they didn’t add to their goals tally, with Mesut Ozil at the heart of the Gunners’ creative fulcrum.

CSKA suffered a defeat on Monday, losing 2-1 at home to Dynamo Moscow – so their morale will be low – however they cannot be underestimated.
