Fernandinho concerned by CSKA pitch

Fernandinho admits CSKA Moscow's poor pitch is a worry for Manchester City as they hope it does not have a major impact on Wednesday's Champions League fixture in Russia.

Mooney: Partnerships key for victory

CSKA’s last Champions League game, against Viktoria Plzen three weeks ago, was moved to St Petersburg because the Arena Khimki pitch was deemed unplayable after torrential rain in Russia and there had been talk that Tuesday’s Group E match against City would have to be switched to another venue.

But although they are playing in Moscow, Manuel Pellegrini’s team will not be allowed to train at the stadium on Tuesday evening because of fears they might make the surface worse.

"I am worried about the pitch," midfielder Fernandinho was quoted as saying by The Guardian. "If you don't have a good pitch it could be very hard for us. I am hoping it will be a good game but that depends on whether the pitch is good or not.

"Everybody has talked about the pitch being bad but I don't know. We will see when we train there. If the pitch is bad we may have to fight to win the game but that is no different to any other game -- it is always a fight to win."

City were beaten 3-1 at home by Bayern Munich in their last European game and Fernandinho is adamant they need three points against CSKA on Wednesday.

"We have to go for the win," he added. "We can't think about the draw -- we need to go there to win. This is all about six points because we play CSKA back-to-back. We must win there, and if we do that and then beat them at home, we will take a big step towards qualification."
