Terek Grozny vs CSKA Moscow
Russian Premier League
Date: Sunday, 19th March 2017
Kick off at 13:30 UK/ 14:30 CET
Venue: Akhmat Arena.
CSKA Moscow will have the chance to take advantage of the slower attacking start Terek Grozny have made in 2017 to try and narrow the gap at the top of the Premier League standings.
The Horses will hope that Lokomotiv can make an upset and beat Spartak Moscow in the city derby on Saturday.
Terek were off to a terrific start to the Premier League campaign, but the team dropped in form as the time passed by.
Rashid Rakhimov’s side is yet to score their first goal in the league competition in 2017. They opened the second part of the season with an unexpected home defeat to Ufa.
The last weekend has seen them pulling out a goalless draw against Rostov who kept their main stars on the bench due to Europa League legs with the famous Manchester United.
CSKA managed to overtake Zenit St Petersburg in the second position after demolishing Tom’ Tomsk 4-0 on the home court in the last round.
Aleksey Ionov played his best game of the season netting a brace, while the January’s acquisition in the attack Vitinho was the one who broke the deadlock.
Viktor Goncharenko can generally be quite happy with the off-season friendlies as well and the team will travel to Grozny in high spirits.
