CSKA Moskva form and stats

The home supporters can't complain about results here at VEB Arena as CSKA Moskva have scored 16 goals to get 15 points from 7 games. The overall stats in the Premier League are 5-0-2 (wins-draws-losses). The team is able to perform also as the away side, as they are nurturing a very healthy winning streak of five straight victories regardless of arena. Nine out of nine points from the last three home games for Moskva, and the home supporters are ready to scream their lungs out to keep the winning streak alive.

The CSKA Moskva goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev is looking to record 90 more "clean sheet" minutes as his team have now played 192 minutes without conceding a goal in the Premier League.

A nice win for Moskva last time playing, versus Rostov. That was also a home game and the match ended 2-0 with Konstantin Kuchaev and Fedor Chalov scoring for the victors. Prior to that was the away defeat visiting Feyenoord (1-3).

Some members of the home team might already be thinking of their next match, the Europa League game versus Feyenoord in only four days. This game is also played here at VEB Arena.

CSKA Moskva can score goals in their home matches. After 7 league matches they have found the net 16 times. On the other hand, Moskva have conceded 7 goals.

Sochi form and stats

The story so far for the visiting team on their Premier League travels is 3 wins, 1 draw and 3 defeats. Three might be a magic number, but there's been little wizardry in Sochi's last three away games as they have all been lost.

The visiting Sochi have scored more than one goal per away game in the league so far. The grand total is 10 goals from 7 games. In the opposite end, Sochi have conceded 12 goals in their away games.

Head 2 Head

Numbers for the last two meetings between these two teams are: one win for CSKA Moskva, one draw and zero wins for Sochi. Over 2,5 goals: one time; under 2,5 goals: one game.
