Team News: Arsenal Tula
The Arsenal Tula boss Dmytro Parfenov will be thankful to have no fitness concerns to speak of coming into this match with a fully injury-free group to pick from.
Team News: CSKA Moscow
CSKA Moscow boss Aleksei Berezutski has not got a full squad to pick from. Mário Fernandes (Bruised Knee), Bruno Fuchs (Muscular problems) and Hördur Magnússon (Achilles tendon rupture) are those who can’t be considered.
We feel that in this game, Arsenal Tula have it within them to find the back of the net against this CSKA Moscow lineup, although just one goal possibly won’t quite be as many as they’ll concede.
We can see a close game with a 1-2 advantage for CSKA Moscow at the end of the 90 minutes. Expecting it to be very competitive.
