CSKA Moscow vs Rostov
Russia Premier League
Date: Sunday, 5 August 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: VEB Arena, Moscow.
Runners up from the previous edition of Russian Premier League and one of the most popular teams in the country CSKA Moscow are chasing their first victory in this year’s campaign.
They are going to host team Rostov on Sunday afternoon in the Russian capital, and a lot of fans would agree that this match is going to attract the most of attention in round two. I was slightly surprised with high 2.00 odds on home win.
Truth be told, visitors from Rostov have changed their roster and approach drastically in comparison to the previous season when they were much closer to the relegation than reaching any of the European positions. Rostov had only 9 victories in 30 games back then.
CSKA Moscow have started this championship with a little bit surprising goalless draw against Krylya in Samara. Also it is still unknown how the team is going to react to sale of Aleksandar Golovin to AS Monaco.
CSKA Moscow vs Rostov: Head-to-head
There are no surprises who achieved better results in the past. CSKA Moscow won 16 out of 28 encounters, including the last two.
The averange number of goals scored in these duels is around 2.20 per match.
Fout out of the last six meetings have ended with Under 2.5, so we better write that down for the goals market.
CSKA Moscow vs Rostov: Prediction
I have a strong feeling that CSKA Moscow are about to win the first three points in the new season.
There is no doubt that Rostov improved during the summer, but they can’t match one of the best RPL teams at the moment.
Besides home win pick, going with Under 2.5 bet is a reasonable secondary bet.
CSKA Moscow vs Rostov: Bet Tips
Home win @ 2.00
Under 2.5 FT @ 1.50.
