CSKA Moscow are 16-1 in their previous 17 overall meetings and 6-1 in their previous seven on the road. Nizhny Novgorod had a 9-4 home record last year, while CSKA Moscow were 8-4 on the road. CSKA won only once by more than 17 points last year, so I’m going to pick the hosting Nizhny Novgorod to force a closer game than that today.
