Our prediction for this Russia Premier League match:
CSKA Moscow will be aiming to build on a 2-0 win over Khimki when they take on Tambov on Matchday 2. The capital club kicked off the new season in style, and it is more than obvious that they are eager to bring glory days back to Arena CSKA. The Armeitsy are high on spirits ahead of Saturday’s football match, and it should come as no surprise they are seen as favourites to win the game.
Even though Ilzat Akhmetov misses the match with injury, home win should be considered. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Alan Dzagoev, who opened his goal-scoring account in the season opener. Tambov, on the other hand, kicked off the season with a 1-0 home loss to Rostov, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on CSKA Moscow.
