Manchester United are going to have lengthy trips this season Uefa Champions League when they are going to travel to Russia and Turkey to face CSKA Moscow and Besiktas respectively.
The other club in this group is German champions Wolfsburg. They seem the strongest team to qualify to next round with Man United.
But this may be tricky as CSKA Moscow, who won the Uefa Cup in 2005, and Besiktas are too strong to lose in their own ground.
Sir Alex Ferguson side is looking to repeat last two seasons achievement when they played in two finals in a row. Fergie knows his side will face a difficult time, but the team is capable to pass the test.
“These are difficult ties especially the trips to Russia and Turkey,” Sir Alex told ManUtd.com.
“CSKA have developed strongly in the last few years and games in Turkey are always difficult.
“We also know the quality that we’re up against with Wolfsburg, with what they achieved in the Bundesliga last season.”

Tues 15 September – Besiktas (A)
Wed 30 September – Wolfsburg (H)
Wed 21 October – CSKA Moscow (A)
