Arsenal Tula vs CSKA Moscow
Russia – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 1 September 2019
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Stadion Arsenal (Tula).
Arsenal Tula bounced back from the disappointing 1-0 loss to Kazan on the road by getting the better of the out of form Orenburg, to secure all three points last week. The hosts did just enough in the latter clash to ensure that they came out on top and registered a 2-1 scoreline at the last blast of the whistle.
CSKA Moscow, on the other hand, ended a two-match winless run by pulling off an emphatic 3-0 victory over Akhmat Grozny at home. Three different players found the back of the net for the away side who took ten shots at goal in that matchup, seven of which were right on target.
The squad also managed to keep their foes at bay and restricted them from taking not more than three feeble attempts at their end.
The visitors will be coming into the clash this weekend on the back of that positive result and will be in high hopes of recording back to back wins when they lock horns with Arsenal Tula on Sunday.

Arsenal Tula vs CSKA Moscow Prediction
The home team have tasted success just twice from their last four home games, and it needs saying that their wins so far have not come against sides that finished inside the top ten, last time around, either. The guests, who came in fourth in the previous campaign, are no easy side to push past and have lost just one out of their last six Premier League games in a row.
Moreover, out of their previous four visits to this venue, CSKA Moscow have come away with the win twice, and have found the back of the net five times while conceding just one less.
Considering that the away side were also impressive in their most recent matchup, there is every reason to believe that CSKA Moscow will be able to take down Arsenal Tula, who so far, have been picking up the win against just fairly mediocre teams.
Five of the last eight goals that CSKA Moscow have scored in the new campaign, have come before the break. Taking into account that they have also got their names on the scoresheet right from the opening forty-five minutes in four of their last seven clashes, you can count on the visitors to breach Arsenal Tula in the first half without fail.
