CSKA Moscow welcoming Wolfsburg in 5th round of Champions league group stage. CSKA had a perfect start of this season, but they are now coming to this match after four consecutive defeats, two in Russian Premier league, one in friendly match during International break against Dynamo Moscow and in previous round of Champions league against Manchester United. They definitely dropped their form and must get back on the track as soon as possible, in Russian Premier league they are still holding first position with 5 points more than second placed Rostov, while in Champions league are at last place in group B with four point, two less than second PSV and third Wolfsburg. CSKA celebrated only once in previous four rounds against PSV at their field 3:2, while in last match against Wolfsburg suffered defeat on the road 1:0. CSKA must improve their form and try to win here i order to win placement into knockout stage, they have a great team and for sure are able to achieve good results in this season. They are well known as very unpleasant hosts and for sure will give their best to win all three points here. Defender Vassili Berezutski will miss this match due to an injury while appearance of midfielder Roman Eremenko is under the question due to a minor injury.
Wolfsburg meanwhile also had good start of this season, but lately are playing in variable form, now they are coming here after smashed Werder in previous round of Bundesliga 6:0 at home. They have only two points more than CSKA and currently are at third position with equal number of points against whom they suffered defeat in previous round of Champions league. Wolfsburg currently occupies more than decent third position in German Bundesliga, while in Cup they didn't have much luck with a draw and in 1/16 finals were eliminated from Bayern Munich. So far they showed decent performances with minor crisis in their form and for sure will give their best to achieve very important victory. This is their fourth match against CSKA and in previous three duels they celebrated two times and suffered one defeat. Wolfsburg is playing decent attacking football and for sure won't change their tactics for this game. That victory in previous round of Bundesliga over Werder boosted their morale and team now must play on very high level to achieve positive outcome. Defender Felipe Lopes is out due to his fitness problems while also defender Robin Knoche is having problems with slight injury and his appearance is in doubt.
This will for sure be very interesting clash between two teams who showed good performances in this season and both sides now must go for a victory to stay in race for the Champions league knockout stage, both sides showed decent attacking skills so far, I expect open and interesting match and over 2.5 goals to be scored.
