Schneiderlin played the entirety of United’s 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace on Saturday but missed the open part of the squad’s final training session before their meeting with CSKA at Old Trafford.
A win over CSKA on Tuesday will keep United on course for qualification to the knockout stages.
The two teams played out a 1-1 draw when they met a fortnight ago in the reverse fixture.
United have failed to score since Anthony Martial’s diving header in the Arena Khimki.
Louis van Gaal’s side drew 0-0 in the Manchester derby and recorded the same scoreline against Palace.
United also crashed out of the Capital One Cup to Middlesbrough on penalties last week following a goalless 120 minutes against the Championship club.
