PREVIEW & PREDICTION – CSKA Moscow vs FK Crvena zvezda 21/02/2018

Wednesday, starting at 17:00, the TSKA Moscow – FK Crvena zvezda match will be played out of the 16th European League Final. We anticipate a balanced match with a small advantage on the side of the guests.

Mi, 17:00: TSKA Moscow – FK Crvena zvezda

The hosts dominated the disputed tournament in Belgrade, with a total of 18 goals and no less than 59% possession. However, the match ended equally and the return from Moscow was announced to be very hot. It is very important to note for those who did not look at the tour that the statistics are quite misleading. On a countdown, of the seven great occasions of the game, five were Serbs, most of them following the counter-attack. The Russians are currently in the competitive break, they only play friendly at this time. So, it’s hard to say how they treated the game with Esbjerg, the only thing that happened between this double elimination hand. In 2018 TSKA Moscow is unbeaten, but they have not played in the championship since the beginning of the year. Although Group A of the Champions League, in which the Russians were active, was relatively accessible, with only Manchester United being clearly superior to the squad, Basel managed to win the second place to the Moscow team, which is still quite important in the equation the party that awaits us.

On the other side, FK Crvena zvezda won second place in Group H in the Europa League, in a team of teams similar to the Russians. Arsenal was clearly a favorite, also a team in England, but the fight for the second place was given between Cologne, BATE Borisov and the team in Serbia. Finally, with 9 points accumulated, as did their counterparts, the Belgrade side moved further, but attention, with a 3-2 goal. In the championship, after the victory of the last stage score 3-0 with Javor, the penultimate ranked, Red Star has a 9 points advantage in the hierarchy. The Serbian golaver is an impressive 58-8. Our neighbors have a very solid and closed loop, with no “star Aero” players playing as a very united group. Even if they start with the second chance, it remains to be seen what will happen on Wednesday. If only Golovin is suspended from the hosts, the guest should return the main striker Boakye. However, his substitute, Pesic, managed two goals in the weekend after a very good game, so it is hard to say who will start the field.

TSKA Moscow: Akinfeev – Vasin, Berezutski, Ignashevich – Fernandes, Dzagoev, Wernbloom, Natcho, Kutchaev – Vitinho, Musa.

FK Crvena zvezda: Borjan-Stojkovic, Savic, Tallec, Rodic- Donald, Jovicic- Nabouhane, Krsticic, Radonjic- Pesic.

Finally, we consider this game to be similar to the one on the tour, without too many goals.

PREDICTION: Over 1.5 goals @ 1.45
