📰 Team News: Spartak Moscow
There aren’t many selection issues, with just a single fitness concern for the Spartak Moscow boss Guillermo Abascal to be concerned about thanks to an almost full-strength squad. Nail Umyarov (Metatarsal Fracture) is sidelined. Players who are serving a ban and are therefore ineligible to play are Danil Prutsev and Daniil Denisov.
It’s our opinion that Narodnaya komanda will possibly make use of the 4-4-2 formation and select Aleksandr Selikhov, Daniil Khlusevich, Ruslan Litvinov, Nikita Chernov, Tomás Tavares, Anton Zinkovskiy, Daniil Zorin, C. Martins Pereira, Quincy Promes, Aleksandr Sobolev and Keita Baldé.
📰 Team News: CSKA Moscow
Thanks to a mainly healthy group, there is only the one fitness problem for the CSKA Moscow gaffer Vladimir Fedotov to contend with. Bakhtiyor Zaynutdinov (coccyx contusion) won’t be playing here.
We are inclined to think that Armeytsy will likely make use of a 3-4-2-1 system, starting the game with Igor Akinfeev, Igor Diveev, Willyan Rocha, Moisés, Milan Gajic, Víctor Méndez, Saša Zdjelar, Jesús Medina, Ivan Oblyakov, Fedor Chalov and Anton Zabolotny.
We are of the inclination to think that CSKA Moscow and Spartak Moscow may well end up cancelling each other out here.
Shouldn’t be much in it, and a draw looks quite a realistic result. We’re therefore tipping a very even match with a score draw when all is said and done.
Our expert partners are tipping over 1.5 goals for this match. Check out their VIP predictions here.
