As part of the next match of the Russian Championship, the players of the capital CSKA and Samara Wings of the Soviets will come face to face. Which of the opponents will be able to get three points in a face-to-face duel? LiveResult.Ru evaluates the opponents' chances of success in this confrontation.
The capital CSKA does not know defeats in 5 meetings of the RPL. During this time, the "army men" were able to get 3 wins and 2 draws, and in the 4 previous games of the national championship, the "army men" played at all without conceding goals. In September, CSKA was able to beat Spartak in the capital derby (1:0), after which it was able to defeat Zenit Izhevsk with the second team in the Russian Cup - 4:0. After that, Berezutsky's team coped with Nizhny Novgorod with a score of 2:0 in the Russian championship, and also shared points with Krasnodar (0:0) on its own field. In the match of the last round, the Army team defeated Ural with a score of 1:0. As a result, the "army" settled down after 11 rounds with 20 points in the fourth position. After 11 rounds of the RPL, the Wings are in 8th place, with 16 points to their credit.
Wings of the Soviets
The Samara team was able to score an incredible move. I would like to note the fact that the "wings" were able to win 3 meetings from the previous 4, and this is far from the limit. It all started with a victory over Rostov (4:2), and continued in the Russian Cup game, where the Noginsky Torpedo was outplayed with a record score for the club of 10:0. But the trip to the northern capital ended with a defeat from Zenit with a result of 1:2. Before the pause for the games of the national teams, Osinkin's wards defeated Dynamo away (1:0), and in the last match at their stadium they were stronger than Nizhny Novgorod - 2:0.
Injuries and disqualifications:
- Diveev (groin), Magnusson (achilles injury) - both CSKA Moscow.
- Under question:
- Fuhs (muscle injury) – CSKA Moscow.
Statistics and figures:
- CSKA is quoted as the favorite of the match;
- "Army men" do not lose for 7 matches in all tournaments;
- "Wings of the Soviets" do not know defeats in 3 meetings in a row;
- The last face-to-face meeting of the opponents ended with a score of 1-0 in favor of CSKA.
It is curious that in 4 of the last 5 matches of the teams, only one team scores. In two cases, they were CSKA players. Most likely, this meeting will not bring a large number of goals scored. We predict goals in one of the sides.
