Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Feyenoord and CSKA Moscow square off against each other at De Kuip in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Thursday’s program. Feyenoord kicked off their Europa League campaign with a goalless draw, with the team experiencing all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-1 loss to Wolfsberger. This has to down as somewhat of a must-win situation for the Eredivisie outfit, and we are positive that they will leave their hearts on the field.
CSKA, on the other hand, failed to turn their dominance into goals in a goalless draw with Dinamo Zagreb, but given their attacking potential, we believe that punters can find value in betting on both teams to score. In their last meeting in the Europa League CSKA Moscow defeated Feyenoord 3-1, which is yet another reason why both teams to score betting option should be considered.
