Description: CSK Vs RBK Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: CSKA Moscow comes across their first defeat of the season
They finally got a taste of their first defeat in the 2020-21 edition of the Russian Premier League but CSKA Moscow will hardly be dissuade by that result. The club took on last season’s champions Zenit and gave a good account of itself in a closely fought 2-1 defeat in gameweek 3.
While the side was not able to stave off defeat, the performance doled out by the side is set to have filled the team’s ardent supporters with confidence. A performance filled with fight and character, the vigour filled robust display alluded towards the side’s stature as one of the firm challengers for this season’s title.
And the club will be looking to quickly put the setback behind it come today. Up infront of a Rubin Kazan side which finds itself still grovelling for its opening win of the season, this looks set to be a tie which unravels into a straightforward and simple win for the home team.
CSK Vs RBK Dream11 Probable Winner
Enduring their second defeat of the season in three fixtures, Rubin Kazan were wiped the floor with by Sochi the last time around. Comprehensively dismantled and decimated across the 90 minutes, the 3-2 defeat was vindictive of the side’s dilemma in the league at the moment.
This is a side which has offered little in the way of resillinace and pluck, a team which will once again be clobbered by a hungry CSKA Moscow side out scouring for salvation.

Dream 11 Picks
Had it not been for Yuri Dyupin, the foregone encounter could have ended extremely badly for Rubin Kazan. The shot stopper’s decorum and demeanour infront of a barrage of shots saw him thrive while his backline faltered to limit Sochi to three goals on the day.
CSKA Moscow’s 3-5-2 formation has worked wonders for the club. Not only has the deployment helped bolster the team’s defensive gameplan but the wingbacks have provided unstinted support to the team’s attacking soirees as well.
Mario Fernandes and Georgy Shchennikov have been ever too willing to make their presence felt in the side’s forays in attack with the two making ample footprints to see the duo be embedded in our side. Joining up the two is CB Igor Diveev in lieu of the one assist he’s popped up with for the club already.
CSKA Moscow’s top scorer in the opening exchanges of the league, Konstantin Kuchaev was a must have pick for us today. He’s partnered up by Nikola Vlasic with the two set to run circles around a downtrodden Rubin Kazan which has seen its defensive acumen go up in the air.
Ivan Oblyakov links up with the two with him coming across a side that needed up shipping three goals the last time around it took to the middle. Runin Kazan will meanwhile see us make Khvicha the first pick in this slot with the player being the only player to have registered an assist for the club till now.
He’s joined by CDM Oliver Abildgaard, a player who has refused to flinch in the face of bout after bout of attacking plays to withstand the onslaught unleashed his way every tie.
Top scoring for Rubin Kazan after adding his second goal of the season, striker Ivan Ignatyev more than warranted a place in our setup for the impending skirmish. CSKA Moscow meanwhile see us opt for the services of the enigmatic Adolfo Gaich with this looking increasingly likely to be the tie where he break his goal scoring rut.
Captain And Vice-Captain
With two goals and one assist, Konstantin will slot his way into our team as the day’s captain while Vlasic is the vice-captain.
