Spartak Moscow vs CSKA Moscow – Russian Premier League :After a season where the team didn’t manage to fight for the Russian title
Spartak Moscow is looking for a campaign that allows them, at least, to qualify for the Champions League’s play-offs.
For now, their start wasn’t positive, and after 5 matches, Oleg Kononov’s team only has 8 points conquered, which means they occupy temporarily the 8th place, 2 points away from Arsenal Tula, Lokomotiv Moscow, Rubin Kazan and CSKA Moscow.
On the last round, Spartak managed to beat Akhmat Grozny away from home by 3-1, during the 3rd qualifying round for the Europa League, where they advanced with 2 victories against the Swiss of Thun.
On the past Thursday, the team from Moscow won at home by 2-1, after having won in the first leg at home by 3-2. On the next Wednesday, they travel to Portugal to face Braga, on the first leg of the Europa League’s play-off.
CSKA Moscow also failed to qualify for the Champions League last season and they are attacking the Russian league to try and dethrone Zenit on the race for the Russian title.
On 5 rounds, Viktor Goncharenko’s has already slipped up twice, including 1 week ago, on the reception to the recently promoted and debuting Dinamo St. Petersburg (0-0).
With that surprising draw, CSKA saw their streak of 3 consecutive victories being stopped, obtained against Gazovik Orenburg (2-1), Lokomotiv Moscow (1-0) and Rubin Kazan (1-0).
All of that after the misstep at the start of the league, in Samara, where CSKA lost by 2-0 against Krylia. On the league table, CSKA
Moscow is in 4th place with 10 points conquered, 4 points away from the leaders Zenit that have already played and drew this round.
This is a derby of Russian football and simultaneously one of the more interesting derbies of the city of Moscow and the whole country.
The two teams will come into the pitch separated by only 2 points, with the bigger responsibility belonging to Spartak for playing at home and having a chance of diminishing the distance they already have to the top teams.
CSKA had more time to prepare for this match, getting directly on the Europa League’s group stage, while Spartak is coming off the match on the 2nd leg of the 3rd qualifying round only 4 days ago against Thun, already having the play-off encounter against Braga in 3 days.

Spartak Moscow vs CSKA Moscow – Betting Tips: :
It will be difficult for Spartak to prepare the team physically for all of these challenges, which means I expect a stronger CSKA and being able to play with that aspect to get some points on this trip to the Otkrytiye Arena.
