Aston Villa Face CSKA Moscow in UEFA Cup Last 32

Aston Villa Face CSKA Moscow in UEFA Cup Last 32

Aston Villa will face CSKA Moscow in the last 32 of the UEFA Cup, with the quarter-final draw following shortly from Nyon, Switzerland.

Moscow, who won this tournament in 2005, qualified having won their league without dropping a single point; however their results suggest that they do not win convincingly with a number of late late goals sealing the points for the Russians. One of their most notable players is a certain Brazilian by the name of Vagner Love.

Villa`s 3rd place finish in the group stages meant that Martin O`Neill`s side would be pitted against a group winner, something that the manager didn`t seem to worry about given his team selection for that bizarre Wednesday night in Hamburg.

The tie is to be played over two legs, with the first coming on the 18/19 and the second leg on the 26 February 2009.

The draw, in full:

Paris St Germain v Wolfsburg
FC Copenhagen v Manchester City
NEC Nijmegen v Hamburg
Sampdoria v Metalist Kharkiv
Braga v Standard Liege
Aston Villa v CSKA Moscow
Lech Poznan v Udinese
Olympiakos v St Etienne
Fiorentina v Ajax
Aalborg v Deportivo La Coruna
Werder Bremen v AC Milan
Bordeaux v FC Galatasaray
Dynamo Kiev v Valencia
Zenit St Petersburg v VfB Stuttgart
Marseille v FC Twente
Shakhtar Donetsk v Spurs

We now await the draw for the quarter final stages in this, the last tournament before the UEFA Cup becomes no more, becoming the Europa League for next season. As always Vital Villa will keep you right up-to-date with the draw!

If you didn't watch the draw live, you missed a classic. The face of the CSKA rep was brilliant. The commentator even commented on it. I'm not saying we are through, but they didn't want to play us. So much for finishing top of the group eh.

Not an easy one. The only team to win 4 out of 4. The good thing is that we are at home for the first leg and we play Chelski at home at the weekend. At least we haven't got to travel back from Moscow for that one.

By then as well, their main man Vagner Love will have probably signed for Real Madrid, happy days.

Think, we will need at least a 2 goal lead before we go to their place. Temperatures often go down to minus 15 celcius in Feb!!!!!
