Check predictions of the champions league matches from russian journalist.
Russian sports journalist Roman Guttsait gave his predictions of the Champion League matches between Manchester City – CSKA and Zenith – Porto.
This week Russian team will play their key matches in CL , CSKA Moscow travel to Manchester to play vs Man. City,and Zenit will host Porto on “Petrovskiy”.
Man. City – CSKA Moscow,November 6
I can’t see how can CSKA oppose to Man. City.We remeber that their last match,played on “Khimky” arena was interesting,and Moscow team created somr serious goal moments, but there were two facts we must to consider,first the infamous russian weather and the second that the pitch was in very bad condition. Each of this two affected the quality of the match,in particular Man. City.
We can say that Man. City is “home” team,most of the points won by City,either in PremierLeague or Euro cups are from their home matches. In previous Premier League round City trashed Norwich with seven goals (7:0).
City have powerfull midfielders line,full range of quality strikers and there is no doubt that English team will take serious approach to this,important,game,and play for victory maybe with big margin.
Roman Guttsait predicts a Man. City win with two goal handicap. Man City(-2) – CSKA : Man. City at 1.90.
Zenit will host Porto after win in previous round in Portugal.Nobody doubts that Atletico de Madrid will be first in this group,and that this is a battle for second position.Prto and Zenit played even in their last game,but Zenit won by late goal.Porto played almost entire match with ten players,and even like that looked promising and powerfull. Roman said that he thinks this will be hard to predict match with no real favourite.Even Zenit is a host and Porto is not at their full potential on the road.
Roman Guttsait predicts Draw Either 1st or 2nd half at 2.10-2.40.
