CSKA Moscow arrive at Mordovia Arena on Sunday for the Premier League fixture with home team Tambov.
All of our predictions, stats and the user poll for Tambov v CSKA Moscow are shown below - along with the latest match odds.
Tambov will be looking to improve on their last outing here following a 5-0 Premier League loss in their previous game against Sochi.
In that game, Tambov managed 39% possession and 9 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target. Sochi got 24 shots on goal with 10 of them on target. Anton Zabolotny (45', 80'), Sergei Terekhov (55'), Aleksandr Rudenko (74') and Maksim Barsov (90') scored for Sochi.
Tambov haven’t exactly had impressive attacking statistics of late. Their sum of goals stands at just 2 against opposing sides during their last 6 outings. In those games, The Wolves have also seen the number of goals against them come to 16. Nevertheless, we will just have to wait and see if that pattern will persist in this match.
Coming into this contest, Tambov haven’t won at home in the past 8 league matches. They will be so desperate to end this run.
Following on from being defeated in their last game at the hands of Zenit St Petersburg in Premier League action, CSKA Moscow will be hoping to turn things around here.
In that game, CSKA Moscow had 44% possession and 11 attempts on goal with 3 of them on target. For CSKA Moscow, the goals were scored by Salomón Rondón (28') and Nikola Vlašić (91'). Zenit had 17 attempts at goal with 10 on target. Artyom Dzyuba (33') and Wendel (50', 77') scored for Zenit St Petersburg.
The numbers tell their own story, and CSKA Moscow have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, conceding 10 goals in all. At the back, Armeytsy seem to have a bit of a soft underbelly.
Coming into this meeting, CSKA Moscow haven’t won away from home in the past 2 league matches.

Team News: Tambov
Tambov boss Sergei Pervushin will be happy not to have any fitness concerns whatsoever before this clash owing to a completely injury-free group available to choose from.
Team News: CSKA Moscow
CSKA manager Viktar Hancharenka has multiple availability issues to deal with. Konstantin Kuchaev (Muscle Injury), Bruno Fuchs (Foot surgery), Baktiyar Zaynutdinov (Pulled hamstring at the adductors) and Kirill Nababkin (Groin Injury) are names that won’t be on the team sheet. Ilzat Akhmetov cannot play in this game through suspension.
It looks to us that this CSKA Moscow have it within them to dominate on the ball and be rewarded with decent chances.
In contrast, Tambov may well struggle finding the net themselves although we reckon that they could well end up managing to get on the scoresheet.
We’re therefore anticipating a decent 1-3 victory for CSKA Moscow when the referee blows the final whistle.
