CSKA Moscow vs Tom Tomsk
Russian Premier League
Date: Saturday, 11th March 2017
Kick off at 11:00 UK/ 12:00 CET
Venue: Stadion PFK CSKA.
CSKA have a huge opportunity to pick up the first victory in the second part of the season.
The third-placed team in the Russian Premier League will host the rock-bottomed Tom’ Tomsk and everything but a commanding win for the hosts would represent a major surprise.
CSKA opened the second part of the campaign with a goalless draw in the derby with Zenit St Petersburg. The team led by Viktor Goncharenko thus failed to get level with the rivals in the second position.
It is interesting to note that Armeitsy did not concede a single gaol in five consecutive friendly matches and we can expect them to maintain the fine defensive form in the clash with Tom’.
The visitors are by far the weakest team in the top flight of the Russian football at the moment. They sit on the foot of the league standings with no more than nine points from 18 rounds.
The team sold their best players midway through the season which is why you should not be surprised to see them suffering a demolishing 0-6 win to Rostov last weekend.
CSKA Moscow vs Tom Tomsk: Head to head
CSKA have fine consecutive victories in matches with Tom’ Toms. The visitors managed to see off Armeitsy only once in their history.
CSKA, on the other hand, have 14 wins from 20 games with Tomsk. The Moscow side kept clean sheets in each of the last two games with Tom’.
CSKA Moscow vs Tom Tomsk: Prediction
It is hard to find the value bet for this type of the match. The bookmakers are “generous” offering 1/50 odds on CSKA to win.
The hosts will be without their top scorer Roman Eremenko who is suspended. The “slight” value can be found in backing Bebras Natcho to score anytime at 4/7 odds.
We certainly expect to see a goal fest and we’ll go with the Over 4.5 goals at 3/4 as the second betting option.
