Nikita Kakkoev (Muscle Injury) and Ivan Miladinovic (Head Injury) will not be able to play for Nizhny Novgorod boss Aleksandr Kerzhakov.
Team News: CSKA Moscow
CSKA Moscow boss Aleksei Berezutski has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Viktor Vasin (Pulled hamstring at the adductors), Georgiy Shchennikov (Muscle Injury), Hördur Magnússon (Achilles tendon rupture) and Bruno Fuchs (Muscular problems) are not ready for selection. Anton Zabolotnyi will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
