CSKA Moskva vs Manchester United
Competition: Champions League
Match date: 21 October 2015
Kick Off Time: 19:45 BST
Venue: Arena Khimki

CSKA Moscow team are five points clear at the top of the Russian PL after their 3-2 win over mid-table FC Ural on Saturday. They are yet to suffer defeat at home this season. As to the UCL, they opened their campaign with a 1-0 away defeat to Wolfsburg but recorded a 3-2 win over PSV Eindhoven at the Arena Khimki in matchday 2.
The Russian outfit do not have any injury concerns. Goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev, Bibras Natcho and Vasili Berezutski are the only potential doubts. Seydou Doumbia is in fine form in front of goal after returning on loan from Roma and will lead the attack. Ahmed Musa will probably be the left midfielder, making diagonal runs inside to help the forwards in a 4-4-1-1 formation.
Manchester United back to winning ways at the weekend as they beat Everton 3-0 after losing 3-0 at Arsenal before the international break. They lost their first Champions League group match 2-1 at PSV and then recorded a 2-1 home win over VfL Wolfsburg on Matchday 2, recovering from conceding a fourth minute goal to restore parity in the group. Man Uinted are in good form - they have collected five wins from their last six games - but their biggest difficulty is likely to be their ability to adapt to the harsh conditions in Russia and the artificial pitch.
Schweinsteiger is a doubt because of a knee complaint. Valencia and Romero are back in the squad but James Wilson misses the trip due to illness. Morgan Schneiderlin is likely to partner Michael Carrick in the middle of the park. Anthony Martial could return to spearhead United’s attack after playing on the left last weekend. 

CSKA Moskva last 5 matches:
26/09/15 CSKA Moskva 1 – 1 Lokomotiv Moskva
30/09/15 CSKA Moskva 3 – 2 PSV
04/10/15 Dinamo Moskva 0 – 2 CSKA Moskva

Tottenham Hotspur vs Liverpool - Competition: English Premier League

Maurico Pochettino’s men have not lost since the opening-day loss to Man United, winning three and drawing four matches. No wins and just three points from their opening four games raised questions, but they have since picked up 10 from the next 12 available, including a memorable 4-1 triumph over Manchester City. Spurs are now situated in eighth position in the standings.
Eric Dier is suspended, so the fit-again Dembele could partner Dele Alli in the double-pivot in Mauricio Pochettino’s favoured 4-2-3-1 formation. Nabil Bentaleb and Ryan Mason are also out while Danny Rose is available for selection. Summer signing Son Heung-min remains sidelined with a foot problem and this means that Erik Lamela will retain his starting berth behind Harry Kane.
Brendan Rodgers saw his time on Merseyside brought to an end two weeks ago and former Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp has taken over a side currently 10th in the table with just one win to their name in six EPL fixtures. The Reds failed to produce more than one goal in 10 of their 11 matches all season, needed penalties to overcome League Two side Carlisle United in League Cup and drew against Sion in UEL.
Klopp's opening week or so at Liverpool has not been without incident as Joe Gomez and Danny Ings have been ruled out for the rest of the season with anterior ligament damage. Philippe Coutinho is back in contention and will be tucked in behind Daniel Sturridge up front, given that Benteke is still injured. Roberto Firmino, Henderson and Jon Flanagan all remain sidelined through injury while Dejan Lovern is doubtful.
Liverpool team have won five successive league games against Tottenham but they have only won one of their last nine Premier League away games. Goals are usually the order of the day in this fixture – 25 goals have been scored in the last six encounters.

Match date: Saturday, 17th October 2015
Kick Off Time: 12:45 pm
Venue: White Hart Lane, London (United Kingdom)

Republic of Ireland vs Germany
Competition: UEFA Euro Qualifying
Match date: Thursday, 8 October 2015
Kick Off Time: 19:45 BST - 8:45 PM
Venue: Aviva Stadium, Dublin, Ireland 
Referee: Carlos Velasco Carballo

Republic of Ireland team are on a four-match unbeaten run, having beaten Gibraltar and Georgia in the last round of fixtures. As consequence, they were able to close the gap to Poland in second place to two points. A draw is the minimum requirement for Ireland against the current World Champions.
O'Neil could lean towards a more compact 4-4-2 formation as he will be without James McClean and Glenn Whelan, who are both suspended. Everton right back Seamus Coleman is also going to miss the match and Stoke defender Marc Wilson is also sidelined. Wes Hoolahan is a doubt with a heel injury.
Germany suffered from a World Cup hangover at the start of this qualifying campaign, losing in Poland and drawing at home to Ireland but they enter this match on the back of five consecutive qualification wins, with 19 goals scored in that period. Die Mannschaft need only a draw at the Aviva Stadium to be certain of clinching a place at next year’s finals in France.
Joachim Low has a healthy squad to pick from as Reus is back in contention. Boateng and Hummels will anchor the defence, with Emre Can and Jonas Hector operating in the full-back positions. Mesut Ozil, Mario Gotze and Thomas Muller will operate in the final third
These two teams shared a 1-1 draw when they met in Gelsenkirchen for last year’s reverse fixture. However, when the Germans last travelled to Dublin, they beat Trapattoni's Ireland 6-1. The Irish team only lost one of their last 17 European Championship Qualifiers, It was in this campaign when they lose 1-0 in Scotland. If Poland beat Scotland in their direct match, then Ireland will be guaranteed a play-off.

Probable lineups:
Ireland: Given – Coleman, O’Shea, McShane, Brady – McCarthy, Walters, Hoolahan, McClean – S. Long, R. Keane.
Germany: Neuer – Ginter, Boateng, Hummels, Hector – Schweinsteiger, T. Kroos – Bellarabi, Gundogan, M. Gotze – T. Muller.
