Ural have been quite ineffective in attack of late. Their goals record stands at just 4 versus opposition teams during the course of their previous 6 outings. In those meetings, Ural have also seen the tally of goals scored against them come to 6. Still, it remains to be seen whether such a trend shall continue on here in this match or not.

Head to head
Looking at their past head to head meetings stretching back to 01/09/2018 shows that these fixtures have ended in disappointment for Ural. They’ve not managed to get themselves any wins at all whereas CSKA Moscow have just been too good for them, beating them in 67% of those games played.
A sum of 16 goals were produced between them during those clashes, with 3 of them from Bumblebees and 13 netted by Armeytsy. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 2.67.

The referee was Aleksey Sukhoy.
Team News: Ural
There is just a single fitness concern for the Ural boss Igor Shalimov to be concerned about from an otherwise complete set of players. Roman Emeljanov (Surgery) misses out.
Team News: CSKA Moscow
CSKA Moscow boss Aleksei Berezutski has to currently contend with reduced team options. Bruno Fuchs (Fitness), Vladislav Yakovlev (Hip Injury), Igor Diveev (Muscle Injury) and Hördur Magnússon (Achilles tendon rupture) won’t be making appearances.
Ural should get enough chances to score against this CSKA Moscow team, although just one goal might not quite be enough.
Therefore, we think that it’s going to be both teams to score in a 1-2 winning score for CSKA Moscow at the end of the match. Should be an interesting one.
