Wolfsburg at the door

Al Jazeera's Matt Rumsey reports as VfL Wolfsburg prepare to take on CSKA Moscow.

    Al Jazeera's Matt Rumsey reports from Russia as German champions VfL Wolfsburg prepare to take on CSKA Moscow in the visitors' first season in the European Champions League.

    CSKA are struggling in their group while Wolfsburg can keep pace with leaders Manchester United with a win on Wednesday.

    The Germans will have to contend with plummeting temperatures, a plastic pitch, and the watchful eye of the Kremlin if they are to successfully negotiate this fixture.
