CSKA – Zorya, Europa League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR CSKA - ZORYA
CSKA again approach the same defensive way as it did last season. This is the style of the Reds and is not unsuccessful. The truth is that they just have to improve the quality and effectiveness of the attack to make even more progress. In the Championship, they begin to narrow the gap with Ludogorets, although with great difficulty they reach victories, but matches in Europe also scatter them. However, for the first time in a long time CSKA have a good chance of joining the LE groups, although in the event of Zorya’s elimination they will probably have to face Espanyol.
Zorya is in top shape. The team, like CSKA, relies heavily on their defense. The league started with a win (1-0) and a draw (1-1). In the Europa League, however, they managed to qualify from the 2nd round and will now try to reach the playoffs again, having been eliminated from Germany’s Leipzig last year after 0-0 in Ukraine and 3-2 in Germany. Zorya has not had many wins over the years as a guest in this tournament.
Expert view : We expect a relatively even game. Undoubtedly a logical prognosis here would be for goals again, but we will bet this time on a sign or rather on a double chance. CSKA deserve support after this victory, albeit through penalties, over Osijek. The Reds show a fighting spirit and at least in Bulgaria they are unlikely to lose. They should not do this, as it will be very difficult in Ukraine. We think a goal on a foreign pitch would be enough for Zorya, but winning would be too much. Prediction – CSKA Draw no bet at 1.52.
CSKA have only 2 losses in their last 18 home games
Zorya have only 2 wins as a guest in their last 10 away games at LE
