CSK Vs AT Dream11 Team And Match Centre: CSKA Moscow look to enter the fray of the Champions League spots when they take on a dwindling Arsenal Tula side.
As gameweek 18 comes to a conclusion today in the Russian Premier League, for CSKA Moscow, a win would see them breaching into the top 6 of the points tally. It’s a proposition which makes today’s impending encounter against Arsenal Tula a must win affair, a clash which comes bearing with it a dual toned nature with it.
While the aspect of making advent into the top two is tantalising enough for the side, a win also takes paramount precedence far the team if they are to keep their aspiration of challenging for the league title. The nine point deficit they find themselves staring at between themselves and Zenit is already a way too colossal one, one the side would be looking to minimise come today’s clash.
What augurs well for them is not only the apathy Arsenal Tula find themselves in but the current form the home side are carrying into today’s contest as well. The side are on a two match winning spree with the most recent coming being a 1-0 win over Samara, a run the side will be looking to extend today.
And up against a regressing 11th placed Arsenal Tula side, the team will be quietly confident of pulling off a win as well in a match which looks set to be a foregone encounter. The visiting side have lost matches on the bounce coming into this tie with the team handed over their 8th defeat the last time around as they were putdown 2-1 by Krasnodar.

CSK Vs AT Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Having slipped the 23 goals till now in the league, for Arsenal Tula, the woes of their horrid season have stemmed from a paper thin defence. And the fiasco looks set to continue today as well with the side up against a stern attacking test, something which will increase the likelihood of their shot stopper, Egor Shamov pulling off a slew of saves to see us go in with him.
CSK Vs AT Dream11 Defenders
Although both the sides haven’t been the most astute and articulate in defence, what increases the magnitude of the home side coming out with a shut down today is the fact of them controlling the majority of the ball in this one. With Arsenal Tula rendered obsolete without the ball, CSKA Moscow will be looking to refrain and restraint them from opening their scoring counter to see us bring in a hoard of defenders from the side.
With an eye for the goal, Horour Magnusson is the first name we are picking up from the unit alongside Igor Diveev while from the visiting side, Gia Grigalava becomes our singular pick for the day.
CSK Vs AT Dream11 Midfielders
With seven goals and four assists, Nikola Vlasic has not only spearheaded his side’s attacking sojourns but has also acted as a disruptive figure of opposition defences to leave them in distress with his pinch perfect passes. His astounding penchant for scoring has seen him emerge as the side’s leading goal scorer to make him the first choice from CSKA Moscow here.
He’s partnered up by Kristijan Bistrovic, Ivan Oblyakov and Ilzat Akhmetov, all players who’ll be intertwining their skill set in unison to move in tandem and make things harsh for a sordid defensive setup infront of them. From Arsenal Tula elsewhere, its yet against only the sole pick with us deciding to venture in with Sergey Tkachev.
CSK Vs AT Dream11 Strikers
If Arsenal Tula are to have any chance of emerging from this encounter with a win to their name, the side will need their leading goal scorer, Evgeni Lutsenko to be at the pinnacles of his skill set. The player has cascaded his way to the five goals and one assists and with CSKA Moscow have shipped in 16 goals, Lutsenko will be looking to give food for thought to their opponents.
From the home side meanwhile we are getting in with the five goals and two assists, Fedor Chalov for this encounter.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Vlasic comes in to lead our side out for the day while Chalov is the vice-captain.
