CKSA Moscow – Monaco is the other very interesting game Group E proposed for Day 2 of the Champions League. As always when looking at games involving Russian teams, we must first look at the weather, since it’s mid-October.
Not a lot of teams are able to produce their best game in freezing Russian winter – will the French be one of the few teams which succeed?
CSKA Moscow vs Monaco – 18/10/2016
It’s hard to say how Monaco will look in this game, to be frank. Check their latest two games in Ligue 1 – 7-0 away win at Metz, 1-3 away loss against Toulouse.
At the start of the season, they’ve won against Tottenham and PSG and lost heavily against Nice – all signs of a rather inconsistent team.
Monaco are the current leaders of the group, and a draw in Russia would be golden for them. 4 points from the two games against CSKA could send them well on their way towards the knockout rounds.
Meanwhile, the Russian team has to produce a win – no doubt about this. After gaining a single point in their last two games, they have to rely on their home crowd and their experience in playing in harsh conditions to rack up some more points – if they want to still see Europe in the spring, that is.
It’s a known fact that Russian teams play great at home, and that’s why we won’t discuss current form or other things.
CSKA Moscow vs Monaco Betting Tips
We’ll simply go for the easiest idea here: CSKA +0,5. Monaco won’t struggle to win this game, and CSKA will, meaning that we don’t foresee an away win under any circumstances.
The French team will probably defend and try to play a counter-attacking style, meaning that we will also see a fair share of yellow cards. Expect the Russians to do well – home ground advantage really is key here.

Although Leverkusen and Monaco are already qualified, Group E still gives us an interesting clash: Tottenham vs CSKA Moscow.

Tottenham have a slight advantage, but will it prove to be enough?
