As part of one of the matches of the Russian Football Championship, the players of Nizhny Novgorod and CSKA will come face to face. Which of the rivals will get the victory in this confrontation? Our sports portal gives a forecast for this meeting.
The Nizhny Novgorod team was considered one of the main contenders for relegation before the start of the season, but the team of Alexander Kerzhakov was able to surprise at the start of the championship. In the first three rounds, the hosts scored seven points, defeating Sochi and Spartak, as well as drawing a draw with Ural. However, the team gradually lost in terms of results, and now it has slipped to the ninth place in the standings, having 11 points in its asset. In the last round, Nizhny Novgorod lost to Arsenal Tula with a score of 2:3 on their own field.
CSKA Moscow had a weak start to the national championship. Berezutsky's team is currently in seventh place in the standings, which does not correspond to the team's ambitions. At the same time, the" army men " still have the right to count on the fight for the LCH zone. The second "Locomotive" has only four points more, and the "army" has a game in reserve. After two unsuccessful matches with Zenit (0: 1) and Arsenal (2: 2), CSKA was able to defeat Spartak Moscow - 1:0.
Injuries and disqualifications:
- Zabolotny (red card) – CSKA Moscow.
- Fuchs (muscle injury), Magnusson (Achilles injury), Schennikov (calf injury) - all CSKA Moscow.
Statistics and figures:
- CSKA is the favorite of the meeting;
- Nizhny Novgorod has 2 wins in 5 matches;
- The Army team won twice in 5 matches;
- The rivals have played each other only once in their history;
- This meeting ended with a score of 2: 1 in favor of the"army".
I believe that CSKA will be able to win in the upcoming meeting. The team from the Russian capital will show a decent level of football, and after the victory in the derby with Spartak, the Army team will be able to please the fans again with three points scored.
