Crvena Zvezda VS CSKA

Crvena Zvezda and CSKA Moskva meet at Stadion Rajko Mitić, in a match for this stage of the UEFA Europa League (16th Finals). These two teams have never met before, so this will be the first head‑to‑head between them. In this match the home advantage may play an important role, since CSKA Moskva presents significant differences between home and away performances.

Analysis of Crvena Zvezda

The home team got access to this stage of the UEFA Europa League (16th Finals) after having finished the group stage in the 2nd position of Group H, with 9 points won. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive levels in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 8 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses in away matches; against 10 wins, 4 draws and 1 loss at their stadium. In their last match, for the Club Friendlies, they got an away loss against Zenit by (1‑0). In the last 7 UEFA Europa League home matches Crvena Zvezda has a record of 5 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss. Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. There is a tendency for goals in their home matches, as 31 of the last 35 have ended with Over 1,5 goals.

The group on which the Red Star was in the Europe League was balanced and managed to secure themselves in the knockout stage securing the second place, so much that now they hope to go as far as possible in the knockout stage. On the other hand, they know they’ll have a theoretically difficult match, as their opponent narrowly failed to qualify for the Champions League. So, if they want to have the advantage they need to have a quality performance and not to make mistakes.

Confirmed Lineup: M. Borjan, V. Savić, F. Stojković, M. Rodić, D. Le Tallec, N. Krstičić, B. Jovičić, M. Donald, A. Pešić, E. Ben Nabouhane, N. Radonjić.

Analysis of CSKA Moskva

The team plays its first match in this edition of the UEFA Europa League with the intention of getting a positive away result. This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 7 wins, 5 draws and 3 losses in away matches, with 18 goals scored and 13 conceded; against 7 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses at their stadium, with 23 goals scored and 14 conceded. In their last match, for the Club Friendlies, they got an away win against Elche by (0‑3). In the last 10 away matches CSKA Moskva has won 4, tied 3 and lost 3. Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches.

CSKA's fight in the Champions League was a tough one, but they still couldn’t move forward, so they ended up having to play Europe League, where they’re already in the knockout stage. Now the idea is to go as far as possible and to do a satisfactory campaign, so they expect to have a good result in the first leg. If they reach the second match with the advantage they’ll have more chances to dominate the match and to control the match, thus reducing the risks of conceding goals and increasing the chances of qualification.

Confirmed Lineup: I. Akinfeev, V. Berezutski, M. Fernandes, V. Vasin, K. Kuchaev, A. Dzagoev, A. Golovin, P. Wernbloom, B. Natcho, A. Musa, Vitinho.

Betting suggestion:

Playing at home, Red Star will need to open a good advantage as they know that the second leg match should be even more complicated, as it will be at their opponent's ground. CSKA comes for this match with the intention of making a strong deselecting on the pitch, as they know that if they win at least a draw, it will be considered a great result. We believe this will be a quite truncated match, due to the strong mark that the visiting team will print throughout the match, So, we’ll bet that there will be no more than 2.5 goals until the final whistle.
