CSKA Moscow vs Ural: Preview and Predictions

CSKA Moscow vs Ural
Russia – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 3 March 2018
Kick-Off at 11:00 UK
Venue: VEB Arena (Moscow).

Ural have confounded their pre-season expectations at the start of the season, but a run of somewhat slower results saw them fall down to the bottom half of the league standings. Aleksandr Tarkhanov’s men have thus gone on the winter break being just six points above the drop line and they will have a huge test to face in the first competitive game of the year which is about to see them play CSKA Moscow in the capital.

CSKA have ended the year in fifth place which is quite disappointing for the team with the highest expectations. Nonetheless, they are only two points adrift of the second-placed Zenit and the battle for the Champions League spot will definitely be ongoing for them in the next couple of months.

Viktor Goncharenko did not make any significant changes to his squad during the winter break. His men have been successful in the last 32 round of Europa League as Alan Dzagoev’s goal made all the difference between them and Red Star Belgrade in two legs.

Ural have been quite successful in the FNL Cup during the winter break as they’ve lifted the trophy after winning five consecutive matches in the competition. Nonetheless, the team has only scored two goals in last four away games in Premier League.

CSKA Moscow vs Ural: Head-to-head

Ural held CSKA to a goalless draw when the two sides met in this term of Premier League at SKB-Bank Arena.

Prior to that clash, CSKA Moscow were on a run of eight consecutive wins in matches against Ural.

Ural have never leaven VEB Arena undefeated in five H2H clashes with Armeitsy there.

CSKA Moscow vs Ural: Prediction

The hosts are 1.33 favourites to get the spoils, but instead of backing the home win, we see the higher value in going with CSKA to keep a clean sheet here at 1.61.

The visitors will park the bus and try and keep it goalless for as long as possible. Given that they’ve drawn league high 10 times, we just don’t see them suffer a catastrophe here and our alternative option is Under 2.5 goals FT at the odds of 1.75.
