The next event which we really want to predict and make a preview is going to be again from UEFA, Europa League, Knockout Stage, between CSKA Moscow and Lyon. The game will be held in VEB Arena, Moscow, Russia. Meanwhile, the referee who will be involved in this amazing contest is Antonio Mateu (Spain), moreover, the average yellow cards are around 2.25, therefore our first recommendation is under 5.5 cards.
There have been under 2.5 goals scored in 8 of CSKA Moscow's previous 9 games in Europa League, while Lyon has won 5 of their previous 6 games in Europa League. Coach Viktor Goncharenko is likely to bring him Kirill Nababkin on the right. In addition, centre-back Vasili Berezutski is suspended. For him probably his brother Aleksey is used. The hosts will miss the experienced defender because with him held CSKA in six of the last eight competitive games zero. But in their Champions League group, the Russians were also third only because of nine goals in their last six games. Offensively, CSKA is just behind the top quartet in Russia with just 29 goals. At least the Brazilian Vitinho radiates some danger with seven goals this season.
Lyon is struggling for consistency at the moment, only managing three wins from their last 10 encounters. They have never won in Russia, winless in three games. The French side is favourites to advance to the next stage of the competition but may have to wait until the return leg to get the job done.
