Louis van Gaal: Why scoring against CSKA Moscow is pivotal for the team


Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal says his side cannot afford not to score against CSKA Moscow in the Champions League.

The two teams are both chasing Group B leaders Wolfsburg with PSV Eindhoven bottom on three points.

And the Dutchman says a win is a must on Tuesday night.

"I cannot see that [a mental problem behind our lack of goals]", van Gaal told reporters.

"When I see their characters, I don't think they have doubts about that quality. It can change in one match - let that be CSKA, because we need a victory.

"I think the right of the fans is always there [to voice their opinion].

"The first time that we were not the better away team was against Arsenal so I think they have seen it very good. They can sing that [attacking chant], but in the next game maybe they shall sing in another way.

"I have to hope we score against Moscow again because then we are talking in a different way."
