CSKA Moscow vs FK Akhmat
Russia – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 25 August 2019
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Arena CSKA (Moscow).
CSKA Moscow succumbed to what was only their second defeat in the new campaign with a 2-1 loss against Spartak Moscow last week on the road. The hosts were on a five-game unbeaten run prior to that disappointing result and will be eying the clash with FK Akhmat on Sunday to bounce back to winning ways.
The visitors have not come out on top in their last two games in a running and were held to less than exciting stalemate against the reigning champions in their most recent matchup on the road. The squad have just two wins to boast of so far, both of which came from their comforts of home.
Considering the disappointing form that they are on at the moment, FK Akhmat are certainly staring at the prospect of ending up with the defeat in this one.

- Only one out of their previous ten meetings have seen both teams find the back of the net.
CSKA Moscow vs FK Akhmat Prediction
The home team will be coming into the game this weekend on the back of a 2-1 defeat. However, the only two losses that CSKA Moscow have admitted to so far have come in their trips on the road. As of now, the hosts are unbeaten in their last three fixtures on home soil.
Furthermore, FK Akhmat have not been coping well in their recent visits to this venue and have managed to get the better of this opponent just once in their last thirteen visits.
Taking into account that they have not picked up a win in their previous five trips on the road either, there is certainly enough and more reason to back CSKA Moscow to grab all three points in this one.
The away side have not found the back of the net in their last three outings in a row. With the hosts keeping a clean sheet in two of their previous three clashes on home soil as well, expect CSKA Moscow to come out on top with two or three goals at the most on the scorecards.
