Tosno vs CSKA Moscow
Russian Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 9th August 2017
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stadion im. Aleksandra Nevskogo.
CSKA Moscow are in a must-win situation ahead of the visit to Stadion im. Aleksandra Nevskogo for the meeting with Tosno in the fifth round of Premier League this Wednesday.
The league’s newcomers will come into the game in an improved atmosphere after netting their first goals of the season and after clinching the first win among the elite on Saturday.
The team led by the Ukrainian manager Dmytro Parfenov managed to beat Arsenal Tula 1-2 on the road thanks to goals from Evgeni Markov and Vagiz Galiulin.
Armeitsy, on the other side, suffered the second defeat in three home outings in this term of Premier League on Sunday when they slipped up against Rubin Kazan’ (1-2).
Viktor Goncharenko’s men thus have an imperative to see off Tosno because Zenit and Lokomotiv Moscow are already on a six-point gap and CSKA must not allow any more slip ups if they want to stay in the contest for the very top of the standings.
Tosno vs CSKA Moscow: Head to head
This is going to be the first official head to head match in the league competition between the two teams.
CSKA and Tosno did take on each other in a friendly match two years ago when Tosno clinched a surprising 0-2 win, but we can’t take that result as relevant considering the fact Armeitsy played with the reserve lineup.
Tosno vs CSKA Moscow: Prediction
Goncharenko will be desperate to see the impotents in CSKA’s defensive line and Tosno are just the perfect opponent for boosting up the confidence in this particular segment.
We just can’t see any other scenario but a comprehensive win for the super motivated visiting side in this one.
Tosno vs CSKA Moscow: Bet Tips
