More goals in this yet! 5-2 City-come on Blues!" Chris says: "Manchester City's performance has been very impressive so far and they deserve to be winning. However, on the break, CSKA Moscow have been a threat, and I can't see this changing in the 2nd half. So, Man City will need to keep it tight at the back, as I see the Russians grabbing an equaliser if City's back-four keep on making careless errors."City re-start the game.Fancy a bet? Sky Bet now go 12/1 for a CSKA win, 5/1 for the draw and 1/6 for a City victory. You would still say City should win but they look vulnerable on the break and could still concede more.

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
