Team News: CSKA Moscow
Looking at personnel, there is just the sole fitness concern for the CSKA Moscow boss Vladimir Fedotov to be concerned with from an otherwise complete set of players. Igor Diveev (Foot surgery) is out of contention.
It looks as if Armeytsy should employ a 3-4-2-1 system for this game featuring Igor Akinfeev, Willyan Rocha, Kirill Nababkin, Moisés, Khellven, Saša Zdjelar, Víctor Méndez, Ivan Oblyakov, Milan Gajic, Fedor Chalov and Anton Zabolotny.
Team News: Krylia Sovetov
With a fully injury-free squad available to select from, the Krylia Sovetov manager Igor Osinkin has zero fitness concerns to speak of before this match.
From our viewpoint, Perya could decide to begin the game with a 4-2-3-1 lineup with a starting lineup of Ivan Lomaev, Glenn Bijl, A. Soldatenkov, Roman Evgenjev, Yuri Gorshkov, Maksim Vityugov, Fernando Costanza, Vladislav Shitov, Amar Rahmanovic, Nikita Saltykov and Vladimir Pisarskiy.
We envisage that Krylia Sovetov should have enough to breach the defence of this CSKA Moscow lineup, although that is unlikely to be as many as they’ll concede.
We’re tipping a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 winning score for CSKA Moscow by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. Let’s see what eventuates.
