Arsenal vs CSKA: prediction for the Russian Premier League fixture
Arsenal Tula are having a poor start to the 2021/2022 season of the Russian Premier League. After six games, the Gunners are on the last line of the table. Arsenal got their only victory in the third round over Krylia Sovetov (2:1). After the defeat from Akhmat Grozny in the last round (1:2), Dmitry Parfenov was sacked, and Miodrag Bozovic replaced him as the head coach.
CSKA also have had a rough start. Aleksei Berezutski's team is currently only seventh in the table. In the fourth and fifth rounds, the Army men managed to defeat their opponents: they beat Rostov (3:1) and Akhmat Grozny (2:0), but couldn't extend the winning streak. In the last round, CSKA paid a visit to Zenit and lost to the defending champions (0:1).
This score was recorded in the last two games between the clubs.
In the last three head-to-head games in Tula, this bet played.
Arsenal scored in the first half in three of their last four games.
Arsenal look very poor at the start of the season. They have hired a new manager, who will need some time to make a difference. CSKA have an excellent chance to earn three points and they shouldn't miss such an opportunity if they want to catch up with the title rivals.
Our prediction - CSKA to win.
CSKA lost Nikola Vlasic, who has moved to England. But the attacking line of CSKA played well at the start of the season even without the Croatian midfielder. Arsenal probably won't keep a clean sheet, but we believe that the Gunners will also be able to score at home.
Our second bet - both to score.
