CSKA Moscow's Necid: My horoscope says I will score a hat-trick against Real Madrid

The Czech striker was in bullish mood ahead of his side's crunch clash against the Spanish giants at the Santiago Bernabeu, setting his sights on finding the net
CSKA Moscow forward Tomas Necid has stated that his horoscope predicts him scoring a sensational late hat-trick in the second leg of the Champions League last-16 tie against Real Madrid.

The Russians held Los Blancos to a 1-1 draw in the first game in Moscow, and the striker believes he can make the difference in the return match in the Spanish capital.

Necid is highly likely to be on the substitutes bench for Wednesday night's clash, but that has not dimmed his optimism for headline-grabbing heroics at the Bernabeu.

"According to my horoscope prediction, it will be a good week for the star sign Leo," the striker told Russian sports daily Sport-Express.

"I will net a hat-trick in Madrid, scoring on the 86th, 88th and 92nd minutes of the match."

The 22-year-old striker has netted 19 league goals in 64 appearances for CSKA since moving to the Russian capital from Slavia Prague in 2009.
