A run of resolute displays by the CSKA Moscow defensive unit has seen their ‘goals against’ tally standing at 4 from their previous 6 clashes combined. During the same time, the number of goals that they have scored themselves is 9. Such a trend isn’t assured to be continued here, however.

Team News: CSKA Moscow
Thanks to a mainly available group, there’s only the lone fitness worry for the CSKA Moscow manager Vladimir Fedotov to be concerned with. Bruno Fuchs (Fitness) misses out for this game.
From our viewpoint, Armeytsy might elect for a 3-4-2-1 formation using Igor Akinfeev, Kirill Nababkin, Igor Diveev, Baktiyor Zaynutdinov, Milan Gajic, Ivan Oblyakov, Maksim Mukhin, Georgi Schennikov, Jorge Carrascal, Jesús Medina and Fedor Chalov.
Here is a game where Nizhny Novgorod will have to perform well to hit the back of the net against this CSKA Moscow side who we reckon will score at least once to put them ahead.
Our tip is therefore for a very competitive game with a 0-1 victory for CSKA Moscow at the end of this game.
