CSKA Moscow and Krasnodar are both high-flying teams in the Russian Premier League. They go against each other in quite possibly the most exciting fixture of this weekend. Zenit St. Petersburg has raced to the top spot, leaving a six-point gap behind.

CSKA Moscow and Krasnodar share 19 points each, while the away team is placed second in the table due to them having won more matches than their opponents.

The tie breaking criteria-priority list in the Russian Premier League, has goal difference placed eighth, unlike other popular league in Europe. Head-to-head stats are given more importance here.

As both teams seem to follow same patterns during the season, and are similarly strong and weak, this match is a huge opportunity for both teams to get ahead in the head-to-head stats, which will most probably come into play during the end-phase of the competition.

CSKA Moscow vs Krasnodar Prediction

As these similarly strong teams go at each other, the advantage lies with the home team. They have consistently performed well against their opponents, especially at the CSKA Arena. They have the extra motivation to post better head-to-head stats as well as to climb and consolidate the second spot in the league.
