Spartak Moscow-CSKA Moscow,Russian Premier League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR SPARTAK - CSKA
Spartak Moscow did not start the championship strongly and is already lagging behind the leaders Zenit. Several other teams are also ahead of them so Spartak needs points. However, they lost only 2 at home this season in the draw with another city rival – Dynamo. In addition, Spartak is constantly playing matches from the Europa League, which makes their schedule very busy.
CSKA Moscow’s two away games have brought a total of 1 goal since the start of the season. They also played the Moscow derby with Loko Moscow at home but took it 1-0. CSKA lost their first league game 0-2 to Krylya, which was a surprise, but then came to 3 wins and 1 draw in the next match. CSKA have not yet started playing in Euro tournaments and have the opportunity to prepare well for the matches in the championship.
Expert view : This Moscow derby will be very much the same. By far, these are the most contested Moscow derbies, right between Spatak and CSKA Moscow. There have been a lot of goals in these games lately, which is not typical. We think that our guests are in better shape now and Spartak know that, which makes us expect them to be more cautious and even accept draw. Ultimately, we decided to bet on fewer goals this time, which is logical at the beginning of the season. Prediction – Under 2.5 goals at 1.65.
4 of CSKA’s last 5 games have ended with under 2.5 goals
There are under 2.5 goals in 7 consecutive home games of Spartak
