Our Prediction:

CSKA Moscow will win

CSKA Moscow – Espanyol Match Prediction | 04-10-2019 12:55

They conceded two goals or more in their final four Europa League games last season, while we expect Espanyol to take advantage. The visitors have lost just one of their last 15 away trips in the Europa League. They come here with some strong results on the road behind them, while CSKA have won just once in their last five in this competition.

CSKA Moscow will be aiming to make amends for a heavy 5-1 loss to Ludogorets when they welcome Espanyol at VEB Arena on Thursday evening. CSKA Moscow have big ambitions for the 2019/2020 Europa League season as well and seeing that Espanyol failed to impress in their opener against Ferencvaros, we are tempted to put our money on the Russian outfit. The Armeitsy have been in a splendid form in the Russian Premier League of late and thanks to a 3-0 win at Ural they climbed to top position in the standings.

In 1901 the Catalan club changed its name to Club Espanol de Futbol. Los Periquitos used to play in bright yellow shirts in the past, but current colour of the teams home kit is blue and white. Espanyol were founded in 1900 and their original name was Sociedad Espanola de Football. Espanyol are a Catalan club that plays in Spanish La Liga.

The visitors have claimed 100% of their league points on the road this season. They are unbeaten in three La Liga trips, while they head into this game aiming to stretch that and pile the pressure onto CSKA. Espanyol are unbeaten in their last 22 games in all European competitions (W16 D6 L0) since they were eliminated in the last 32 of the UEFA Cup by Schalke in 2005-06. After all, the away side have built up a fine record on the continent over the years.

CSKA have never lost to a Spanish team in the competition but also shipped five in their opening group game whilst Espanyol were unspectacular in their draw with Ferencvaros. This may not turn out to be an all-time European classic, but it will be an intriguing tie that has much riding on it after less than satisfactory results for both in their opening group game clashes. Expect a nervy encounter as both feel the pressure and come away with a point apiece.

The visitors have also tasted success just twice in their last ten games in all competitions and will be coming into the matchup this week on the back of a disappointing 2-0 defeat over Valladolid. Espanyol, on the other hand, have been struggling to pick up a win in the new season and managed not more than a draw in their respective group clash with Hungarian outfit Ferencvaros.

The visitors are in a very different position, having failed to win any of their last four games. While the visitors are heading here in the bottom three in La Liga, you wouldnt guess that by their away form so far. However, they drew with Ferencvaros in their opening game, which has given them a boost going into this meeting with CSKA.

However, that was quickly forgotten in their last clash, as they were thumped by Bulgarian opposition. The hosts are looking good for domestic success this season, with a two-point lead at the top in Russia. However, can they bounce back or was that defeat part of their wider struggles in Europe? Theres now a huge task on the hoss hands just to make it out of this group, while they certainly need a response.

They need to score more and get things going. Can they make it? If they bring back that old form, it is possible. That is an accomplishment for them. Three points now would be big for them. They have no injuries and are ready for this game. As it was already said, Espanyol players were not playing football they wanted in the last pair of games against Sevilla and Alaves but have picked up against Eibar winning 2:1. Just before the match against Sevilla, they didnt lose in 16 consecutive matches from the last season, through the preseason this year.
