Arsenal vs CSKA Moscow: Head-to-head

The two sides’ only meeting in a UEFA competition happened in 2006 Champions League group stage. CSKA was unbeaten in those duels with a 1-0 win at home and goal-less draw at London. That is also Arsenal’s last meeting with a Russian club.

CSKA had met an English club in every season since 2013. In the current campaign, they lost both home and away legs to Manchester United, leaving them with just 1 win from the 10 matches in the period, drew 2 and lost 7.

Arsenal vs CSKA Moscow: Prediction

It seems like Wenger’s men don’t put a foot wrong while playing at the Emirates Stadium. Manchester City are the only side that troubled them here, barring the one-man De Gea show that earned United a win back in December.

Therefore, CSKA are bound to struggle in this first leg fixture. Moreover, they have virtually flopped in every key game played in England in the past two decades.
