CSKA Moscow have been on a persistent run of goalscoring form, netting in each and every one of their last 6 games.
They have hit an aggregate of 10 during that period and have conceded a total of 6. Such a trend isn’t assured to be continued here, however.
Spartak Moscow go into this meeting following a 2-1 Premier League win with the defeat of Arsenal Tula in their previous game.

Looking at their past form shows that Spartak Moscow:
- have not won against CSKA Moskva in away games against them for the last 3 league matches.
- are undefeated in their last 3 league matches away from home.
Head to head

Team News: CSKA Moscow
Alan Dzagoev (Muscle Injury), Igor Diveev (Dead Leg), Ilzat Akhmetov (Fitness), Bruno Fuchs (Bruised Hip) and Kirill Nababkin (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be playing for CSKA manager Viktar Hancharenka.
In our view, Armeytsy will possibly make use of the 4-2-3-1 system with Igor Akinfeev, Georgi Schennikov, Hördur Björgvin Magnusson, Viktor Vasin, Mário Figueira Fernandes, Konstantin Maradishvili, Ivan Oblyakov, Chidera Ejuke, Nikola Vlasic, Konstantin Kuchaev and Arnór Sigurdsson.
Team News: Spartak Moscow
Thanks to a largely available group, there’s only the lone fitness problem for the Spartak Moscow manager Domenico Tedesco to contend with. Maksim Glushenkov (Knee Injury) won’t be in action.
We believe Narodnaya komanda seem likely to utilise a 3-4-2-1 system by sending out Aleksandr Maksimenko, Pavel Maslov, Samuel Gigot, Georgiy Dzhikiya, Roman Zobnin, Nail Umyarov, Alex Kral, Ayrton, Aleksandr Sobolev, Zelimkhan Bakaev and Jordan Larsson.
We’re of the opinion that Spartak Moscow have the firepower to get a goal against this CSKA Moscow team, but that is unlikely to be enough to prevent defeat.
We’re expecting both teams to score in a 2-1 win for CSKA Moscow at the end of this one. Looking forward to this.
