REDS LEARN EURO FATE
Sir Alex Ferguson admits United have been dealt a difficult draw in the Champions League group stages.
The Reds were paired with Russians CSKA Moscow, Turkish outfit Besiktas and German champions Wolfsburg in Group B which was out on 27th August, 2009.
The travelling distances as well as the quality of the teams will pose a stern test for last season's beaten finalists.
"These are difficult ties, especially the trips to Russia and Turkey," Sir Alex told ManUtd.com. "CSKA have developed strongly in the last few years and games in Turkey are always difficult.
"We also know the quality that we're up against with Wolfsburg, with what they achieved in the Bundesliga last season."
