Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is confident they can handle CSKA Moscow's plastic pitch in Wednesday's Champions League clash.

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is confident they can handle CSKA Moscow's plastic pitch in Wednesday's Champions League clash.

United return to the scene of their famous 2008 penalty shoot-out win over Chelsea in the Champions League Final when they play CSKA Moscow in the Luzhniki Stadium.

"I have no issues with the pitch in Moscow," said Ferguson. "When Luton and QPR had them all those years ago we always played well on them.

"We had a great record at those grounds and that was when the artificial pitches weren't as good. The one in Moscow has a far better covering on it."
