Team News

  • Ahmed Musa will likely start up front after Seydou Doumbia picked up a thigh injury prior to the international break.
  • Rasmus Elm will have to pass a late fitness test, but remains close to recovering from a calf injury.
  • Igor Lolo is expected to return to the side at left back after serving a one match suspension for a second yellow against Lokomotiv Moscow.
  • A number of players have returned from injury, leaving Sinama-Pongolle as the only long term injury doubt.
  • Kamil Agalarov continues to serve a three game suspension.

Prediction

  • While CSKA's rise to the top of the table hasn't been built upon a scintillating brand of football, there has been an ominous authority about their performances, particularly the manner in which they manage to come back from losing positions.
  • It's been a difficult run of games for Rostov, who started the season in incredible form. Three consecutive games against capital clubs has halted their progress, and a visit to CSKA will be another tough test of their ability.
  • Despite Rostov taking the mantle of early dark horses, CSKA remain the one club in the Premier League who look capable of going for long periods without defeat. A home win is expected, and it should be delivered.

  • Guys cmon. Vitinho dm?!

  • Lolo is still suspended.Agalarov even if suspended, is a player of another club now. Dzagoev will be the central defensive midfielder next to Wernbloom. Elm is definitely out.
