Our Prediction:

CSKA Moscow will win

CSKA Moscow – Espanyol Match Prediction | 04-10-2019 12:55

However, they drew with Ferencvaros in their opening game, which has given them a boost going into this meeting with CSKA. While the visitors are heading here in the bottom three in La Liga, you wouldnt guess that by their away form so far. The visitors are in a very different position, having failed to win any of their last four games.

They have only conceded 6 goals this season. They try to score as early as possible, so they can finish the game later easily. They do not have injuries or suspensions, up to this day. CSKA is in a good defending form at the moment. With 4 league wins in a row, they hope that they can continue with their form here.

CSKA Moscow vs Espanyol Correct Score Prediction

Russian Premier League leaders CSKA Moscow are aiming to get their Europa League campaign up and running. Which one of them will respond with a positive result here? Despite their bright domestic form, the Russian side had a horror start to their European campaign. CSKA are fresh from a hammering at the hand of Ludogorets, a result which put pressure on both of these sides.

The visitors have claimed 100% of their league points on the road this season. They are unbeaten in three La Liga trips, while they head into this game aiming to stretch that and pile the pressure onto CSKA. Espanyol are unbeaten in their last 22 games in all European competitions (W16 D6 L0) since they were eliminated in the last 32 of the UEFA Cup by Schalke in 2005-06. After all, the away side have built up a fine record on the continent over the years.

CSKA to win the first half is a great way to go in this one. In two of their last three games in all competitions they have gone on to win the first half whilst Espanyol have gone four games in a row without scoring a goal in the opening 45 minutes. One thing that can be said about the Russian outfit is that they are often very fast out of the blocks. Six of their last seven goals have come in the first half including taking the lead against Ludogorets.

Prediction CSKA Moscow - RCD Espanyol

Los Periquitos came from behind to share the spoils with Ferencvaros in Barcelona in the opening match of their Europa League campaign, with the team experiencing all sorts of problems at the back in a 2-0 loss to Real Valladolid in their last league match. CSKA are a real force to be reckoned with at home, therefore, we predict that they are going to beat Espanyol at VEB Arena.

Espanyol are unbeaten in their last 22 games in all European competitions (W16 D6 L0) since they were eliminated in the last 32 of the UEFA Cup by Schalke in 2005-06. The visitors have claimed 100% of their league points on the road this season. They are unbeaten in three La Liga trips, while they head into this game aiming to stretch that and pile the pressure onto CSKA. After all, the away side have built up a fine record on the continent over the years.

The hosts are looking good for domestic success this season, with a two-point lead at the top in Russia. Theres now a huge task on the hoss hands just to make it out of this group, while they certainly need a response. However, that was quickly forgotten in their last clash, as they were thumped by Bulgarian opposition. However, can they bounce back or was that defeat part of their wider struggles in Europe?

The visitors are in a very different position, having failed to win any of their last four games. While the visitors are heading here in the bottom three in La Liga, you wouldnt guess that by their away form so far. However, they drew with Ferencvaros in their opening game, which has given them a boost going into this meeting with CSKA.

In 1901 the Catalan club changed its name to Club Espanol de Futbol. Los Periquitos used to play in bright yellow shirts in the past, but current colour of the teams home kit is blue and white. Espanyol were founded in 1900 and their original name was Sociedad Espanola de Football. Espanyol are a Catalan club that plays in Spanish La Liga.

CSKA Moscow will be aiming to make amends for a heavy 5-1 loss to Ludogorets when they welcome Espanyol at VEB Arena on Thursday evening. CSKA Moscow have big ambitions for the 2019/2020 Europa League season as well and seeing that Espanyol failed to impress in their opener against Ferencvaros, we are tempted to put our money on the Russian outfit. The Armeitsy have been in a splendid form in the Russian Premier League of late and thanks to a 3-0 win at Ural they climbed to top position in the standings.

Form Summary

Mario Fernandes signed for CSKA Moscow in 2012 from Gremio and during his time in Russia he has already surpassed the 100-game mark for the Armeitsy who faced plenty of pressure to sell their prized asset in 2015 with Borussia Dortmund, Inter Milan, Manchester United and Barcelona all believed to be interested in a played dubbed the new Lucio. It is exactly his versatility that makes him a player of significant quality. Brazilian defender Mario Fernandes is a right-back by trade, but the 25-year-old South American can also play at centre-back.
