Spartak Moscow to Win

It’s always tough to predict the outcome of one of the biggest derbies in Russia and we have to say that we can see this game going any which way, especially since both teams are far from their best form and since this is their first game after a long break.

All that being said, our prediction is for Spartak Moscow to win the game. After all, the last five h2h duels between Spartak and CSKA have ended with a win for the home team and we can see that tradition staying alive after their next game.

Spartak Moscow and CSKA Moscow to Draw at Half Time

Although we can see Spartak Moscow coming out of this game with three points, we don’t expect them to have an easy job. In fact, we can see the two teams being tied at half time.

After all, three of the last five head-to-head meetings between Spartak and CSKA have been draws at half times, so we wouldn’t be surprised if that’s the case once again on Saturday.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

Three of the previous five h2h meetings between Spartak Moscow and CSKA Moscow have gone under 2.5 total goals and we expect the same to happen in their upcoming match.

Furthermore, CSKA Moscow averaged 2.06 goals per game in the Russian Premier League this season, which is the second-lowest average in the league. Meanwhile, Spartak Moscow averaged 2.56 goals per game in the league until now.

Spartak Moscow vs CSKA Moscow preview: The derby of the round

Spartak Moscow

With just one win in the last six games, along with three draws and two losses, Spartak Moscow is clearly not in the best form and they were probably very happy to go on a break. Now the break is over and it remains to be seen if Spartak can do better and move up the standings since they are currently only ninth in the league.

CSKA Moscow

Unlike their upcoming opponent, CSKA Moscow won their last two games before the break and they went on a break sitting in the fourth place in the standings. At the moment, CSKA Moscow is six points behind Zenit in first place, so they might be able to get closer to them and make the title race more interesting if they can keep winning.
