CSKA Moscow vs Wolfsberger
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 3 December 2020
Kick-Off at 17.55 UK
Venue: VEB Arena, Moscow.
One of the most popular teams from Russia welcomes Austrian side this Thursday at VEB Arena, and anything but a win will remove them from the equation.
Even though there are only two rounds left to be played in Group K of Europa League, we still have no idea which two teams are going to advance.
Dinamo Zagreb have the biggest chance after collecting eight points, while Feyenoord, Wolfsberger and CSKA Moscow all have solid chance for 2nd place.
The team has been in poor shape at the moment, losing the leading position in Russian Premier League because of a 1-0 loss to Rubin Kazan last weekend.
Wolfsberger are not doing great in Bundesliga either, so this should be an exciting match.
CSKA Moscow vs Wolfsberger Head-to-head
These two teams met in the first round in Austria in late October. Full-time result was 1-1. Russians were ahead early on thanks to the goal scored by Adolfo Gaich. Final result was set by Michael Lindl later on.
Besides Wolfsberger, the last time CSKA faced team from Austria was all the way back in 1981 versus Sturm Graz. They were eliminated on aggregate.
CSKA Moscow vs Wolfsberger Prediction
Despite the recent crisis, CSKA Moscow definitely have the quality to compete for the title in Russia this season. Viktor Goncharenko has achieved good results so far, and his team has spent a lot of time as table leader all until the last weekend.
Konstantin Kuchaev is one of the biggest rising stars not only in country but in Europe. So far he scored six goals on the domestic scene, while also adding three assists.
CSKA have gathered three points in Europa League so far (three draws), while losing only to Feyenoord.
Wolfsberger lack experience in playing European matches. The most recent form in Bundesliga is far from idea, as they sit in poor 7th place with ten points from eight games.
Wolves were defeated in the last two UEL appearances, and we think this streak is going to extend.
