The defender has insisted that the Russian powerhouse cannot be taken lightly as they have some talented individuals
The Germany international has admitted that he does not know much about the Russian champions as of yet, but he has stressed 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."
The match at the Allianz Arena is scheduled to kick off at 20:45CET.
