CSKA Moscow is hosting Dynamo Moscow in a derby match of round 11 in the Russian Premier League.
CSKA is in solid form, and they have lost only 1 of their last 8 games. In their last 4 games in the Premier League, CSKA has 3 wins and 1 loss. With 19 points, 16 scored goals, and 8 conceded goals, CSKA is in 3rd place in the standings, just 2 points away from the top. In their latest Premier League match against Ural on the road, CSKA has had 46% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, and 77% of the correct passes. Despite conceding a red card in the 49th minute, CSKA was able to score 2 goals in the second half, and they have won this match 0-2. Vlasic has been CSKA’s best player so far this season with 4 goals and 3 assists, while Kuchaev also added 4 goals. Chalov and Oblyakov both have 2 assists. Nababkin, Fuchs, Akhmetov, Schennikov, and Sigurdsson are all injured, while Magnusson is suspended because of the red card. CSKA has some fantastic players, and they are among the best teams in Russia, but their biggest problem is consistency, and they tend to spill points against the weaker teams.
Dynamo Moscow used to be one of the best teams in Russia, but they haven’t been close to the top in a while. Dynamo already has 3 losses this season, alongside 5 wins and 2 draws. With only 9 scored goals, and 5 conceded goals, Dynamo Moscow is in 6th place in the standings. Dynamo’s form has been hot and cold this season, and they have been struggling with consistency on both ends. In their last match against Krasnodar at home, Dynamo has had only 38% of ball possession, 10 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 72% of the correct passes. Despite being the weaker team in this game, Dynamo has scored 2 goals, and they have won this match 2-0. N’Jie is the leading goalscorer for Dynamo with only 2 goals. Szymanski has added 4 assists for Dynamo Moscow. Sly is the only injured player for Dynamo Moscow, while Parshivlyuk is suspended because of the yellow cards. Dynamo Moscow has a few good players, but not enough to compete for one of the top two spots. Dynamo will be in the run for the Europa League, but I don’t see them getting there this season.
The trends are mixed here, and CSKA hasn’t won any of their last 3 home games against Dynamo Moscow. We are getting CSKA for a great price at home, and I will take that because CSKA is the better team here, and they are in a more consistent form this season.
