CSKA Moscow vs Arsenal Tula Prediction
CSKA Moscow had to settle for no more than a point in their most recent clash at home with Ludogorets in the Europa League after the final scores read 1-1 at the last blast of the whistle. Be that as it may, CSKA Moscow have been coping a lot better in their domestic campaign where they are currently sporting a two-match winning streak.
With just one defeat in their last five matchups, the hosts are deservedly sitting third on the ladder, one point behind second-placed Zenit.
On the other hand, Arsenal Tula have been hit by a sharp decline in form. The visitors have been at the losing end in their last two games on the trot and will be making the trip to Arena CSKA on the back of a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Krasnodar.
To make matters worse, the guests have just one win from their last five outings in the league. It is also worth mentioning that Arsenal Tula have admitted defeat in each of their previous three trips here as well.
With CSKA Moscow unbeaten in their last three games in all competitions on home soil, Arsenal Tula’s chances of pulling off an upset are certainly looking bleak.
Furthermore, there have been no dearth of goals when these two sides lock horns at Arena CSKA. Taking into account that eleven of the twenty-five goals for the hosts so far have also come from their matchups at home, it is certainly well within reason to expect a high scoring clash to unfold in this one.
