As part of one of the matches of the 1st round of the Russian Football Championship, the players of CSKA Moscow and Ufa will come face to face. On whose side will the victory be in this confrontation?
Last season, CSKA Moscow finished the Russian championship on the sixth line in the standings, 15 points behind the national champion represented by Zenit. It is worth noting the fact that CSKA was left without European Cup tournaments, and this season for the first time in a long time will be able to focus on performances in domestic championships. In the off-season, the Army team held 6 matches, within which they were able to win 5 victories.
"Ufa" took the 13th place in the national championship standings last season, but remained in the RPL due to a series of circumstances. Ufa players held 9 friendly matches at once in the off-season, where they managed to win 4 matches, lost three times, and drew 2 times with their rivals. In a duel with CSKA, Ufa will be a clear underdog of the meeting, which is hardly possible to argue with.
Statistics and figures:
- CSKA is the favorite of the meeting;
- "Army men" have a 3-match series of victories;
- "Ufa" has 1 win in the last 5 games;
- The previous face-to-face meeting between the rivals ended with a score of 1: 1;
- CSKA managed to win three times in 5 meetings against Ufa.
With a new mentor, the "army" will try to do everything to win. Most likely, CSKA will defeat the opponent with a minimum score, because the attacking actions of the Berezutsky team leave much to be desired. CSKA will start its season with a successful game against Ufa.
