Being in the same group with a Russian team in the Champions League is hard for lots of reasons. A very long flight, coupled with low temperatures and a very different playstyle are all reasons that led to quite surprising results in recent times. This is one of the reasons why Group E seems especially tight this year – the fact that CSKA Moscow will probably act as the tiebreaker.
CSKA Moscow vs Tottenham Hotspur
The Russian team drew 2-2 against Leverkusen on Day 1 and will now be looking to bring Champions League football to their home fans for the first time in this season. Tottenham will be the opposition of the day, who comes after a disappointing defeat against Monaco on day 1.
The Russians will be looking to profit from the low morale of the English squad and to capitalize on their own strength – which led them to being unbeaten this entire season.
Meanwhile, Tottenham knows that if they fail to gain any points from this away game, their situation in the group will change dramatically. They won’t be allowed to make any more mistakes and must win almost all their remaining games.
That is why the team will be extra-motivated to put up a good fight and come back with at least a point from Russia. Their recent form is great, they’ve shown great football against Sunderland last time around and Harry Kane also started scoring – just a few reasons why their objective is completely achievable.

From a betting perspective, we actually back the Spurs to do well. We all know what the side is capable of when motivated correctly, and their attacking players ( Son, Kane, Eriksen mainly) seem in great form. X2 is our bet of choice, with Tottenham to score, and we’re even thinking to propose a goalscorer : Harry Kane.
