Mark Clattenburg, from England's Football Federation, will be refereeing the game, assisted by referees Stephen Child and Simon Beck.
In Group B thus far, Trabzonspor has successfully beat Inter Milan by 1-0 and has tied with Lille by 1-1. Tonight, Trabzonspor aims to win and maintain their position as group leader. Tonight's game will mark Trabzonspor's 90th played in European cups. Out of the prior 89 games played, Trabzonspor has won 33 times, tied in 21 games and have lost 35 matches.
CSKA HOPES TO WIN
While Trabzonspor has yet to suffer a loss in the past four games played for European cups, they have won once and tied three times. Should Trabzonspor walk away with even a single point from tonight's game, they will then become the most successful Turkish team to show in the Champions League over the past four seasons. CSKA has won one game out of the past eight played, however against Turkish teams they have only suffered one loss over the past six games played.
Tonight's probable starting line-ups:
CSKA MOSKOVA: Gabulov, Nababkin, V. Beruztski, Ignashevich, A. Berezutski, Mamaev, Aldonin, Tosic, Dzagoev, Doumbia, Vagner Love
TRABZONSPOR: Tolga, Celustka, Giray, Glowacki, Cech, Serkan, Colman, Zokora, Adrian, Halil, Pawel
