Our football match prediction:
Stadion PFK CSKA will host the Champions League clash between CSKA Moscow and Monaco. Les Rouges et Blancs have yet to suffer a loss in Group E and they are certainly capable of grabbing something from Tuesday’s football match. The Ligue 1 outfit suffered a shocking 3-1 loss to Toulouse in their last league match, but it was more than obvious that they were with one eye on the Champions League clash against CSKA. A win over the Russian team would see Monaco retain top position in Group E and they are widely expected to stick to their attacking style of play. CSKA, on the other hand, kicked off their Champions League campaign with a 2-2 draw against Bayer Leverkusen and they were beaten by Tottenham Hotspur in the capital of Russia in their second group game. Taking everything into account, we predict that CSKA and Monaco are going to play out a low-scoring draw at Stadion PFK CSKA.
Highlighted Player (Roman Eremenko):
Roman Eremenko is an experienced midfielder who adds valuable quality to CSKA Moscow’s play with his passing skills, great vision and knack for goal. The 29-year-old Russian-born Finland international has so far played for the likes of Udinese, Siena, Rubin Kazan, but he is best remembered for his spell at Ukraine giants Dynamo Kyiv where he became captain helping the club win Ukrainian Premier League in 2009, and played in the Champions and Europa Leagues. He moved to CSKA Moscov in 2014 and has so far made over 50 Russian Premier League appearances during two seasons for the Army Men. His impact with the Russian giants was immediate with Eremenko picking up several monthly awards for the Best Player in the league, while he was named the Russian Football Premier League MVP of the 2014-15 season.
Highlighted Team (Monaco):
Though based in Monaco, Les Rouges et Blances – as they are commonly referred to – play their games in the French football league system. Members of the top tier Ligue 1, Monaco play their home matches at the Stade Louis II in Fontvieille in front of 18,500 people. The Principality club boasts a turbulent history, which saw Monaco reach the highest heights of both domestic and international scene, but also get relegated to the amateur leagues at the very beginnings and to Ligue 2 in 2010-11 season. The following year AS Monaco were acquired by the Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev, whose heavy investments turned the Principality club into one of the biggest spenders in Europe in 2013 and reestablishing its place among Europe’s top clubs. AS Monaco have had notable European results in the modern football era having been runners-up in the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup in 1992 and the UEFA Champions League in 2004. One of the most successful clubs in France AS Monaco have so far won seven league titles and five Coupe de France trophies.
