Real Madrid – CSKA: prediction for the UEFA Champions League group stage match
The match Real – CSKA on December 12, 2018 will decide the fate of the Moscow team in the fight for third place and advancement to the 1/16 Europa League. The starting whistle at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium will sound at 20:55 Moscow time.Real Madrid have already secured first place in Group G and will not let Roma in front of them. The fate of the first line was decided in the previous round, Real went to visit the Italian team. It was difficult for Solari’s wards to play against the “wolves” on their territory, this was especially noticeable in the first half, the Madrid team hardly created chances at the opponent’s goal, but at the same time they were incredibly lucky at their possessions. The guests created the only good moment at the gate of Roma in the middle of the first half, Luka Modric shot from the penalty area, the ball flew on target, but the hosts’ goalkeeper did not disappoint. Falls in the defense of the “creamy” happened very often, so it’s surprising that the teams went to the break with a score of 0. It was much easier for the Spaniards to play after the break. The first attack in the second half brought the guests a goal, Facio dropped the ball on Gareth Bale, and the Welshman had only to beat the goalkeeper. Such a failure hit the Roman players hard and problems in their defensive line began to appear more and more often. Bale could have scored a double against Roma, the player went one on one with the goalkeeper three minutes after his first goal, but Olsen did not let his partners down this time. Roma’s goalkeeper failed to do anything in the 59th minute, Lucas Vasquez closed the pass from a partner with an accurate shot into the corner – 0:2. Until the end of the match, Madrid did not miss their advantage and won a landslide victory. After this victory, the match between Real Madrid and CSKA no longer decides anything for the hosts, so they can focus on other tournament goals. CSKA “CSKA” failed the previous round, unsuccessfully playing at home against the Czech Victoria. The game started in the best possible way for the hosts, already in the tenth minute Nikola Vlašić opened the score, the Croat converted a penalty and put the Muscovites ahead. CSKA players had good opportunities to double the score in the future. Even in the first half, Vlašić and Shchennikov could increase the score, the first lacked accuracy a little and he shot past the far post, and the second overdid the ball and allowed the goalkeeper to pick up the ball. At the very end of the first half, the guests could punish the opponent, but Roman Prochazka did not convert a penalty in the last minute of the first half. CSKA went into the break as the leader, but the most interesting thing awaited the fans in the second half. The second half of the match started terribly for the hosts, the “soldiers” looked extremely uncertain and conceded a goal in the 56th minute, Prohazka corrected himself in a moment with a missed penalty and equalized the score in the match. Time passed, and CSKA was farther and farther away from winning. The situation became even worse in the 84th minute of the match, Patrik Groshovsky crossed into the penalty area, and Lukas Geyda closed the partner’s cross and brought victory to his team. The result is 1:2, the “soldiers” lost and lost their chances of reaching the 1/8 of the Champions League, in order to get into the Europa League and guarantee themselves a European spring – you need to win the match Real – CSKA on December 12.
