Yenisey vs CSKA Moscow
Russia – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 11 August 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: Central’nyj Stadion (Krasnoyarsk).
Saturday’s action in 3rd round of Russian Premier League is going to be opened with a clash between Yenisey Krasnoyarsk and CSKA Moscow.
Newly promoted hosts haven’t opened the season in the top flight well as they still haven’t managed to win a single point. They suffered defeats against Zenit and Akhmat Grozny and failed to find the back of the net.
This is going to be another tough challenge for Dmitry Alenichev’s side and they should be content if they get anything from this one. Yenisey Krasnoyarsk finished as 3rd placed team in the second-tier last season, but they managed to earn the place in the top flight by eliminating Anzhi in the promotion playoffs.
CSKA Moscow have been pretty unconvincing at the start of the season as they managed to snatch just a point away to recently promoted Krylya Sovetov. Same as their rivals, Abel Hernandez and the lads failed to score in the past two rounds and they need to start finding the back of the net urgently if they want to remain in the title battle.
The visitors managed to lift the first domestic trophy of the season by winning the Super Cup after beating their local rivals Lokomotiv Moscow after the extra time.
Yenisey vs CSKA Moscow: Head-to-head
These two sides faced each other four times so far and both teams managed to book a win each. Two of those matches were friendly ones and both finished as a draw in which the nets didn’t stay still.
Yenisey vs CSKA Moscow: Prediction
This is going to be a very exciting match, however the visitors should end their slight results crisis in the very start of the season. We believe CSKA Moscow will get back home with valuable three points and the hosts will need to search for a win in some other match.
Although their head to head clashes were pretty efficient, this time we are expecting much tighter match. Both sides are searching for their first goals in the competition and since both defences are playing very well, this clash should stay under 2.5 margin.
Yenisey vs CSKA Moscow: Bet Tips
Away win @ 2.00
