The defender insists that the Russian Premier League powerhouses cannot be taken lightly in their Champions League face-off as they have some talented individuals
The Germany international admits that he does not know much about the Russian champions as of yet but knows that Tuesday's game cannot be taken lightly.
"They have a couple of really talented players, so we can't underestimate them. We have to be careful," Boateng told the club's official website.
"We don't often get to see CSKA's games, so it's hard to say what we can expect. We'll be taking a look at a lot of video material and I'll personally check out their strikers online.
"What I do know is that they're very tricky opponents."
