Betting tips for CSKA Moscow vs AEK Athens FC - 02.08.2017
Match of a priori process that is disputed in Arena CSKA, where the Red Foxes hope to confirm their pass to the next round after the 0-2 achieved in their visit to Athens. CSKA Moscow are hoping to return to the group stage of the top European competition. After seeing as his great rival in the Russian capital, Lokomotiv, was done with the title in the Premier League, the team will cling to the Champions League to try to return to the elite.
With more than 78 million euros in budget, the Russian army team will have Viktor Goncharenko as top manager. The team is immersed in their league match, which has only played two days after the break for the national team to contest the Confederations Cup. The first victory of the season against Anzhi (1-3) has been added the hard defeat before precisely the Lokomotiv by identical marker the past weekend.
The sale of midfielder Kirill Panchenko to Dinamo Moscow in exchange for 1.8 million euros, along with the departure of goalkeeper Sergey Chepchugov to Enisey have been the two main movements of the team, which left Serbian right-winger Zoran Tosic and the offensive midfielder Roman Eremenko, who loaned midfielder Sergey Tkachev to Arsenal Tula and center forward Konstantin Bazelyuk to Anzhi.
Last weekend, the Russians comfortably won 2-0 at Krabarovsk Energy.
UEFA Champions LeagueAEK Athens has a budget of almost 31 million euros to try to get into the group stage of the top European competition, something that seems very complicated after the 0-2 of the first leg. The Eagles of Two Heads finished fourths in league last season, losing in the end of the Glass of Greece before the PAOK Thessaloniki.
For this campaign, the team has invested just over one million euros with the signings of Serbian central defender Uros Cosic, for which they have paid half a million euros to Empoli; Of the center heleno Georgios Giakoumakis from Platanias, to which they pay 300000 euros; The Greco-Belgian midfielder Viktor Klonaridis, for which they have paid Lens 200,000 euros, plus the decision of the Croatian forward Marko Livaja, from UD Las Palmas. In the chapter of losses, leave the equipment the right side Stavros Vasilantonopoulos, yielded to Lamia; Czech center forward Tomas Pekhart, who heads to the Israeli Hapoel Beer Sheva; And central Dimitrios Kolovetsios, who is free to Panathinaikos.
The team has played three friendlies, winning two and tying in the last played before the first leg against the Belgian Gent (1-1)
It will be the second duel between both in the competition. A priori, the Russians have it done and will leave to let the Greeks take the initiative and risk. Something very complicated in Jiménez's teams. I expect a game of few goals, in which they score less than 2.5 in total in the 90 minutes.
