A solitary victory over Czech outfit Viktoria Plzen in the Champions League is the one bright point in a dismal run of results for CSKA Moscow, who have failed to score in six of their last seven outings.
Manuel Pellegrini’s team were comprehensively taken apart by defending champions Bayern Munich in their last European outing but they shouldn’t be judged on that result, more on the comfortable 3-0 success at Viktoria Plzen in their opener.
Domestically, City have picked up a couple of decent results too so they head to the Russian capital in good shape and they’re more than capable of heaping more misery on the goal shy hosts.
Coral quote the visitors at 12/5 to prevail ‘to nil’ in the Arena Khimki, BetVictor price City at 19/2 to notch twice without reply but the best bet arguably involves Argentine front man Sergio Aguero.
The City striker has helped himself to six goals in his last five appearances and is as big as 5/1 (Skybet) to break the deadlock in this one. Alternatively, bet365 rate Aguero at 6/4 to net at any point.
