Football predictions: On Tuesday, starting with 18:30, the match TSKA Moscow – Spartak Moscow will be played, within the 25th round of Russia, first league. It is one of the derbies in Russia that is played every time “open”, without any 0-0 recorded since October 2003.
TSKA Moscow comes after a 0-0 away draw with another fellow citizen, Dinamo, and the last match played at home remains that incredible 0-4 with the leader Zenit St. Petersburg. The “red-blues” are on the 5th place in the ranking of the first Russian league, with 37 points, 4 points away from Rostov, which is on the 3rd, qualifying place in the Champions League preliminaries.
On the other hand, Spartak Moscow failed to defeat Ufa at home, drawing as TSKA, 0-0. However, the “white-reds” have two consecutive victories in the away matches in Russia, 3-2 at Arsenal Tula and 3-1 at Orenburg. Thus, Spartak has 32 points in the ranking, 5 less than the rival in the city and ranks 6th. This is also a fight for the 5th place, the last one that leads to the Europa League next season.
As I mentioned before, the disputes between TSKA and Spartak benefited from many goals, and the last 0-0 was recorded in 2003. The previous direct match took place in the quarterfinals of the Russian Cup, on March 4, 2020. Then, Spartak prevailed with 3- 2 after extra time, at the end of a match with 18 shots on goal. Analyzing the bets, the selection “1-1 correct score anytime” was the winner in the last 3 direct disputes played on the field of TSKA.
PREDICTION: Both teams to score / YES @ 1,80
