Russian Premier League
Date: Monday, 9 March 2020
Kick-Off at 11:00 UK
Venue: Rostov Arena, Rostov na Donu
Russian Premier League has resumed last weekend after the standard winter break, which means big battle for UEFA Champions League positions continue. All big guns of this division are scheduled to play on Monday. The action is starting with a clash between FK Rostov and CSKA Moscow.
These two teams are still hoping to jump into the title race with Zenit, but that is hardly going to happen at this point considering the gap. This contest should be a close one. Home win is priced at 2.75 rate at the moment, while CSKA have slightly better chances at 2.55.
FK Rostov vs CSKA Moscow Head-to-head
FK Rostov caused an upset and defeated CSKA in Moscow in the first part of the season. Full-time result was 3-1 in their favour mostly thanks to Khoren Bayramyan who scored two goals and provided one assist.
These two opponents have met 32 times in the past and CSKA Moscow have 16-10 lead in terms of victories. The average number of goals scored in those encounters is at 2.31 per duel.

FK Rostov vs CSKA Moscow Prediction
CSKA Moscow are currently sitting in 4th position with 35 points. Team’s biggest strength so far was great defending. They have conceded only 19 goals so far, which places them on high 2nd place in this field in the entire league.
Coach Viktor Goncharenko surely can’t be happy with the results in 2020. First, CSKA Moscow won only one point at home against Ural, followed by elimination from the national cup against city rivals Spartak Moscow.
FK Rostov are looking really strong at their arena, having won six out of nine encounters so far. Their start of the second part of the league wasn’t successful though, featuring 1-1 draw on the road against Akhmat. We feel that draw is the most realistic full-time winner outcome here. Under 2.5 FT also makes a lot of sense considering recent and h2h numbers.
