Espanyol vs CSKA Moscow Match Preview

Espanyol host CSKA Moscow for their Matchday 6 Europa League clash with a Group H top spot already in the bag, where they earned 11 points in five outings despite La Liga struggles – where Pablo Machin’s men sit rock-bottomed with just nine points to their name after 16 games played.

RCDE have seen comfortable losses to Osasuna (2-4) and Real Madrid (2-0) in their last two outings and while they have been scoring more goals in front of the home fans, there’s a lot to prove this term. They will be desperate for pick-me-ups despite no high stakes here and we feel they have what it takes to secure the points.

CSKA lost their chances to proceed to the knockout stages and earned just two points so far, making the chase more interesting as they held off Ferencvaros (0-0) and Ludogorets (1-1) in the last two outings. They saw a loss to Arsenal Tula (0-1) and a 1-1 draw at Krasnodar in Russian Premier League since, with obvious struggles to keep it together at the back.

‎Koni have been conceding goals on the road regularly too and this will be worrying ahead of the trip to Spain too, despite earning a win and four draws on their last five trips. They’ve been led by Fedor Chalor and Nikola Vlasic up front and we do feel they’ll want to show off here as well.

Still, we feel Espanyol will have what it takes to secure the points and end the group stage with a Home win priced at Evens with bet365, hoping to see their depth in quality make the difference despite an underwhelming streak in domestic competitions.

We do hope to see goals and with no high stakes involved, we expect an attacking approach on both ends here. With that in mind, we’re also going for goals on Thursday evening and backing Over 2.5 Goals FT at 11/10 with BetVictor.
