CSKA Moscow vs Krylya Sovetov
Russian Premier League
Date: Sunday, 26 May 2019
Kick-Off 12:00 UK / 13:00 CET
Venue: VEB Arena (Moscow).
CSKA Moscow had a roller-coaster campaign full of ups and downs throughout the entire season. They ended the previous term as runners-up to Lokomotiv Moscow, but are nowhere near such accomplishment his time around.
Armeitsy head into the last Matchday of the season sitting at fifth place, miles away from the title contention.
The best CSKA can do at the moment is overtaking Spartak Moscow who are one point away in fourth position.
A win here and Spartak’s slip-up at Orenburg would earn Armeitsy a place in the Europa League group phase next season instead of qualifications.
Viktor Goncharenko’s men will be massive favourites to make it count here against Krylya Sovetov who are four points shy of the safe zone ahead of this trip to the capital.

CSKA Moscow vs Krylya Sovetov: Prediction
Perya will have to go through relegation play-offs in order to avoid the immediate return to the second division of Russian football.
They were not pulling up any trees lately having collected only one point from past five rounds. They lost eight, drew one and won one of last ten league affairs to ruin the good job done beforehand.
The team led by Miodrag Bozovic lost five on the spin away from home in the Premier League. They shipped six goals in last two defeats on the road (4-2 to Zenit and 2-1 to Akhmat Grozny).
CSKA Moscow scored 25 goals in 13 home outings this season. The hosts will come into the game in higher spirits following a 1-0 victory over Akhmat last Saturday.
The home win in a high-scoring affair is what are expecting to witness on Sunday at VEB Arena.
