CSK vs SPK Dream11 Match Preview, Team News, Lineups

Zenit Saint Petersburg’s stalemate against Akhmat Grozny gives both CSKA Moscow and Spartak Moscow a chance to close down the gap on the champions and current leaders on the table.

But with both these teams facing each other in the 6th round at Otkritie Arena, only one team can make grounds on the table, provided there is no draw, a result which won’t help either team.


Match Details:

The Russian Premier League match will be played between Spartak Moscow and CSKA Moscow at Otkritie Arena, in Moscow, Russia. The ground has a capacity of 45,360.
The game will start at 10:30 PM (IST), on Monday, August 19.

Spartak Moscow Team News:

  • Ezequiel Ponce will be serving the 2nd of his three-game ban in this game.  The 22-year-old striker was sent off during the 0-0 draw against Dynamo Moscow two weeks ago.
  • There are no fresh injury concerns for the hosts.

Possible INs and OUTs of this game:

  • Spartak Moscow advanced to the Europa League playoffs after beating FC Thun on Thursday.
  • New signings Guus Till and Jordan Larsson missed that match because they were cup-tied, but the duo is available for selection here.
  • Nikolai Rasskazov started out as the first-choice right-back in Oleg Kononov’s team but has since lost his place to Andrey Eschenko following some underwhelming performances.
  • Jordan Larsson will continue to lead the lines in the absence of Ponce.
  • Andre Schurrle has arrived at the club in a high profile switch and will start the match here.

Spartak Moscow Probable XI:

Aleksandr Maksimenko (GK), Ayrton Lucas, Georgi Dzhikiya, Samuel Gigot, Andrey Eschenko, Ayaz Guliev, Roman Zobnin, Guus Til, Andre Schurrle, Zelimkhan Bakaev, Jordan Larsson


CSKA Moscow FC Team News:

  • Alan Dzagoev and Georgy Schennikov both miss out due to long-term injuries. The duo hasn’t featured all season.
  • Iceland international Arnor Sigurdsson picked up an ankle injury last week during the game against PFC Sochi. He remains a doubt ahead of the game.

Possible ins or outs of this game:

  • Super striker Fydor Chalov suffered a broken nose last week, but has miraculously returned to the training, and is available for selection.
  • If Arnor Sigurdsson fails to recover, Konstantin Kuchaev will take his place in the starting 11.

CSKA Moscow Probable XI:

  • Igor Akinfeev (GK), Victor Vasin, Zvonimir Sarlija, Hordur Magnusson, Ivan Oblyakov, Kristijan Bistrovic, IIzat Akhmetov, Nikola Vlasic, Mario Fernandes, Konstantin Kuchaev, Fedor Chalov

Potential Game Changers:

  • Andre Schurrle
  • Jordan Larsson
  • Fedor Chalov
  • Nikola Vlasic
  • Mario Fernandez

Likely to score:

  • For Spartak Moscow: Fedor Larsson, Zelimkhan Bakaev
  • For CSKA Moscow: Fedor Chalov, Mario Fernandez

Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:

Fedor Chalov: The 21-year-old’s reputation is growing with every match. For his age of 21 years, he has shown far more maturity and composer in front of the goal. Certainly a star in the making.

Season stats:

  • Games: 05
  • Goals: 02
  • Assists: 01
  • Aerial Battle won:+2 per match

Andre Schurrle: Spartak Moscow completed a major coup with a signing of Andre Schurrle. It’s completely befuddling why not many clubs came for his signature after Fulham’s relegation, but Moscow are more than happy now.

With him on the pitch, Spartak Moscow look even more threatening, especially on the counter-attacks.

Season stats:

  • Games: 01
  • Goals: 01
  • Assists: 01
  • Man of the Match: 01

Zelimkhan Bakaev: Spartak’s player of the campaign so far. He has been phenomenal with or without the ball, not shying away from making off-the-ball runs to help his teammates.

Season stats:

  • Games: 05
  • Goals: 02
  • Man of the Match: 01

Guus Til: Gives drive in the middle of the park to the team, with his relentless runs and incisive passing.

Season stats:

  • Games: 01
  • Assists: 02
  • Passing%: 96

Suggested combination:

  • Goal-Keeper: Maksimenko
  • Defenders: Gigot, Dzhikiya, Ayrton, Magnusson
  • Midfielders: Schurrle, Guliyev, Larsson, Akhmetov, Vlasic
  • Attackers: Chalov

  • Captain: Schurrle
  • Vice-captain: Chalov

CSK vs SPK Dream11 potential winner:
A draw looks the most likely result here.
