Bayer Leverkusen and CSKA Moscow have been drawn together in one of the most interesting groups of this year’s Champions League. Every year, we see one group that is very balanced, in which every team has the right of dreaming to qualify for the knock-out rounds, and this year we are looking at groups E and B. But which team will emerge victorious from their debut game in the competition?
Bayer Leverkusen vs CSKA Moscow
So far in the Bundesliga, Bayer have one loss and one win and are still looking to find their tempo. They had good results in the Champions League last year and shown good football, even managing some surprise results against better teams.
Their objective for this year is to qualify from this balanced and tough group and see how they can take it from there – either with a lucky draw in the Round of 16 or some awesome games against a top-tier club.
On the other hand, CSKA Moscow is the clear, strong, unbeaten leaders of the Russian Premier League, only conceding one goal in the first 6 games of the league.
They’re very accustomed to European top-flight football, and their home ground advantage played a great role in this – going to Moscow is one of the most dreaded trips in European football. Their objective from the group is the same – qualification and building the rest of the season from there.
Bayer Leverkusen vs CSKA Moscow Betting Tips
The game is rather hard to predict because we will be looking at two teams who most likely won’t play very offensive, focusing on trying to not begin the campaign with a defeat.
We believe that no team will win with a difference greater than 1 goals, so going for a +1,5 handicap bet on either team is a good idea.
Also, under 3,5 or over 2,5 goals if you’re feeling risky is another thing we recommend – usually, games with Russian teams involved don’t feature lots of goals.
Both Teams To Score – Yes: 1.90 or 10/11
