CSKA Moscow vs Crvena Zvezda – Betting Tip and Prediction:
As I predicted, the 1st leg match was filled with cautions, having finished with a goalless draw. This way, Crvena Zvezda has a slight advantage, since even a draw with goals ensures they advance.
However, I believe that CSKA will be able to win at home, since they are known for being difficult to face in Moscow, where we know that they are very strong and is very used to these decisive matches.
Especially on the individual level, I see this CSKA having more arguments than the Serbian side and despite considering this will be a tight tie, I see a lot of value betting on the home side to win.
