The hosts will come into it in the highest of spirits following the impressive 1-0 victory over the reigning Champions League holders Real Madrid in the mid-week elite competition action. It was Everton’s loanee Nikola Vlasic who notched the only goal of the game on Tuesday evening to bring Armeitsy at the very top of the Group G standings.

Lokomotiv were also in action on Wednesday, but the disappointed once again falling 0-1 t home to German Schalke 04. Parovozy are thus yet to score a goal in the new Champions League campaign, following back-to-back defeats to Galatasaray (3-0) and Schalke (0-1) at the start of the competition.

CSKA Moscow vs Lokomotiv Moscow: Head-to-head

The head to head stats also speak in CSKA’s favour. They won 16, drew 7 and lost 10 of last 33 meetings with Parovozy.

The two teams met each other in the Russian Super Cup in late-July when the Premier League runners-up CSKA clinched a narrow 1-0 victory after the extra-time.

Lokomotiv took four points from two H2H games with Armeitsy in the previous term of the Premier League (1-3 win on the road and 2-2 draw at home).

CSKA Moscow vs Lokomotiv Moscow: Prediction

CSKA have not been doing well in the Champions League only of late. They bagged three wins and a draw in last four Premier League games to climb up to fourth place after a sloppy start to the new season. The head coach Viktor Goncharenko can be thrilled with his men’s defensive efforts as Armeitsy only allowed a single goal in last four domestic league ties (in a 1-1 draw to city rivals Spartak Moscow).

This can’t be said for the visitors who were much easier to break down of late. Yury Semin’s troops shipped eight goals in last four league games. When we add four in two Champions League outings, it’s pretty clear CSKA have to be regarded favourites here.

The home win is the main bet at the odds of 2.10, while we will alternatively go with Armeitsy to net two or more goals in the match at the 2.50 odds.

CSKA Moscow vs Lokomotiv Moscow: Bet Tips

  • CSKA Moscow to win @ 2.10 (11/10)
  • CSKA Moscow Over 1.5 Team Goals @ 2.50 (6/4).
