CSKA Moscow vs Spartak Moscow
Russia – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 13 September 2020
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Arena CSKA.
The Red-Whites have raced to the top of the table with an unbeaten record, and have scored the most number of goals so far in the competition. It goes without saying that they are the best team in the league this season.
However, they are on the road this weekend, and they are about to get tested by one of their arch-rivals, the Horses.
Not only do Viktor Goncharenko’s men have a good h2h record against this opponent (especially at this venue), but they usually have been the better overall team in the past seasons as well.
As such, it seems that a fierce encounter is on the cards for us. Considering the form of the toppers, Spartak Moscow should emerge as the better team on the pitch, but it’s unlikely that they would keep a clean sheet this weekend.
CSKA Moscow vs Spartak Moscow: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last time these two locked horns, the Horses won 2-0. And keep note that this game was just two months back.
- Seven of the former ten clashes had goals from both teams.
- Since 2011, only twice have the guests won at this stadium.
- In 26 visits, only four times have Domenico Tedesco’s men failed to find the back of the net at this stadium.
CSKA Moscow vs Spartak Moscow: Prediction
The Red-Whites have been the best team this season in the competition by a mile, and have also scored the most number of goals. They have an unbeaten record in the Premier League, and also at this ground, they have failed to score goals just four times in 26 fixtures.
On the other hand, their opposite number have won just four times in the past ten-month period at home, and two of their three wins this campaign had come against relegation-battlers.
As such, expect Spartak Moscow to have the upper hand this Sunday.
However, the Horses have been offensively on fire despite their struggles at the back, and they also have a great h2h record at this stadium over the years. Moreover, they are at home, and will be determined to put an end to this spirited run by their hosts.
Likely, expect both teams to score goals this Sunday.
