 Key Defender Misses Training Ahead Of CSKA Vs Manchester United Clash Allnigeriasoccer.com understands that key CSKA Moscow defender Mario Fernandes will undergo a late fitness test ahead of the Russian team's Champions League clash with Manchester United at VEB Arena, Moscow on Wednesday night.

The Brazilian-born wing-back was stretchered off the pitch during the first half of the Moscow derby between Dinamo and CSKA on Saturday.

Recent test results confirmed that Mario Fernandes suffered a concussion of the brain, which makes him doubtful to face the Red Devils.

Since that unfortunate incident before the half-hour mark against Dinamo, he has not trained with the CSKA Moscow squad and did not partake in the club's penultimate workout on Monday.

CSKA Moscow players have been given the morning and afternoon off, and will have their final workout on Tuesday evening, starting from around 1800 hours.

Manchester United record signing Paul Pogba will definitely not take part against the Muscovites after succumbing to a hamstring problem during their opening Champions League fixture versus FC Basel on September 12.
