Our prediction for this Russia Premier League match:
CSKA Moscow will be looking to make amends for a 3-2 loss to Rostov when they host Ufa at their VEB Arena on Matchday 22. The Armeitsy aim to put an end to their four-game winless run in the Russian Premier League, and we predict that they will go all guns blazing at Ufa. Seeing that the capital club are determined to keep their Champions League hopes alive, we believe that home win should be considered. Y
ou should bear in mind that both Vadim Karpov and Ilzat Akhmetov miss the game through suspension. Ufa, on the other hand, did well to hold Zenit to a goalless draw in their last league match, but given the importance of Sunday’s football match for the hosts, we predict that the visiting team will return home empty-handed. When the two teams met in the Russian Cup on October 30, 2019 CSKA defeated Ufa 1-0.
