CSKA Moscow against Viktoria Plzen will now take place in St Petersburg

The game was scheduled to take place at CSKA's Arena Khimki stadium but the club have elected to switch the venue for the match due to the poor state of the playing surface.

The match will now take place at the Petrovsky Stadium in Saint Petersburg some 400 miles away from the Russian capital.

A statement on the club's website, pfc-cska.com, read: "Due to the poor quality of the pitch at Arena Khimki, the UEFA Champions League matchday two game PFC CSKA v Viktoria (Plzen) will be played at the Petrovsky Stadium in Saint Petersburg (Petrovsky Island, 2-G).

Manchester City are due to visit the Russian capital to play CSKA on October 23 but there is no suggestion that game might also have to be moved.

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
