CSKA Moscow vs Anzhi
Last round in Russia and CSKA host Anzhi.
CSKA Moscow are 3rd in the table and the win is absolutely required here, so they can kep the 3rd place for sure and even have the chance for the second if Spartak fail fo beat one of their biggest city rivals Dinamo Moscow.
Both teams are in totally different form. Hosts proved that they can be a scoring machine last round when they beat Arsenal Tula 6:0 at home. They also beat Amkar 3:0 a few weeks ago at home again, so they know how to beat such opponents in a convincing way. Visitors of Anzhi are in big black hole- five losses in a row and the sixth is knocking on the door. I don't see how they can stop CSKA in such a good form and especially their both strikers Chalov and Musa. Both of them are in tremendious form. Supported by a strong midfield in a tactic 3-5-2 goals look unavoidable.
CSKA have some injury problems- Vasin, Schennikov, Kuchaev and Gordyuschenko are all out and Wernbloom is doubtful, but with Ignaschevich and Berezutski's brothers in defense together with players in midfield like Nababkin, Dzagoev, Golovin and Natkho I doubt they will have much problems tomorrow. CSKA also won their previous matches against Anzhi 1:3 as visitors and 4:0 at home during 2017, so ambitious home team against depleted visitors. I think we can see the classic result here, although the goal difference is not important for the homies, they can do it for their crowd as it's last home match for the season and as an apology for finishing(maybe) at third position, which was not be accepted very warm by their fans who want only the title and nothing less.
I don't think Anzhi will find the net tomorrow and there are so many good options in this match for me like 1st half over 1.5 goals at 2.25 odds, -1.5 AH for homies at about 1.70 or even my pick -2.5 AH.. I know it's risky but the chances to be right in my eyes is so big! I expect correct score here 3:0 for CSKA!
