Betting tips – CSKA Moscow vs Kazan – Russia PL
Kick off: 18:45
CSKA Moscow and Rubin Kazan will face each other in one of the most exciting games of this weekend in Russia Premier League. The game is scheduled today at 18:45, UK Time, and the home side seems to be in pole-position at bookmakers and not only. CSKA are the most in form in Russia at the moment, coming after four wins in a row. They are on third place right now, with 56 points in their account and an impressive goal difference (63-26). A victory here will take them back on the second place, ahead of Krasnodar. They have no other option today if they want to have Champions League football next season.
- CSKA Moscow have the best attack in the league, with 63 goals scored in 28 matches.
- The home side (26) also has the second defence in Russia after Zenit St. Petersburg (17).
There will be two missing players for CSKA Moscow today. To be more precise, Cauna and Efremov are still injured, while Tosic is in doubt and he could miss the duel too. In this case, we’ll see Milanov coming back into the team.
CSKA Moscow probable lineup (4-2-3-1): Akinfeev – Fernandes, Berezoutski, Ignashevitch, Nababkin – Wernbloom, Natkho – Milanov, Eremenko, Dzagoev – Musa.
On the other hand, this is a very important match for Rubin Kazan too. The guests are coming here with a bad morale at first view, considering that they won only four points in the last four fixtures, so they could miss Top 4 and Europa League qualification. Three points today will take them back on fourth position, ahead of Dinamo Moscow, also an out-of-form team. Kazan managed to win only 47 points in 28 games so far, scoring only 38 times and conceding 29 goals. They are not in a very good form before this duel and more than that, the away games were not their strongest point this year.
- Rubin Kazan ticked five wins, four draws and four defeats in 13 trips this campaign.
- Surprisingly or not, Kazan won the first game this season aganist CSKA Moscow, 2-1 at home.
- Anyway, they struggled in the past few years here, losing the last two meetings at this stadium.
Like their opponents, Rubin Kazan will have two missing players today. To be more precise, Karadeniz and Sobolev are injured and they haven’t traveled with the squad.
Kazan probable lineup (4-4-1-1): Ryzhikov – Kuzmin, Kvervkelia, Navas, Nabiullin – Dyadyun, Ozdoev, Kislyak, Georgiev – Eduardo, Portnyagin.
