City EDS can all but guarantee a place in the UEFA Youth League knock-out stages with a win against CSKA Moscow tomorrow afternoon - and once again you can watch the game for FREE.
The young Sky Blues have been in impressive form so far, scoring 11 goals – six of those coming against Bayern Munich – and conceding just two.
As things stand, Patrick Vieira’s men are level on points with CSKA Moscow so a City victory at Ewen Fields tomorrow would open up a three-point gap at the top with just two games remaining.
The Russian outfit proved a tough nut to crack in the reverse fixture last month. The Sky Blues opened the scoring through Devante Cole in the closing stages, but the hosts hit back through Ruslan Gordienko to secure a point.
With so much at stake, tomorrow’s top-of-the-table clash mustn't be missed and there will be more than just football on offer. There will also be free give-aways, Moonchester and Moonbeam will be there and you could have the chance to win either: a pair of VIP tickets or a pair of match tickets to the first-team game later that night.
Both competitions will require you to take part in a penalty shoot-out at half-time. To win the VIP tickets, you'll have to score past Tom Deacon from the Copa90 show 'Eurofan'. Please note: you must be over 18 to enter the VIP competition.
Kick-off at Ewen Fields, Hyde is at 3pm and entry is free for everyone. Tune into City Today later this evening for Vieira's pre-match thoughts and team news.
Tickets are still available for the first-team's vital fixture, priced from £33 for Adults and £17.50 for Under 16s.
