Our tipster is backing the Serie A side to deliver when they travel to the Russian capital for Wednesday's crucial Champions League Group G clash

Roma face a testing trip to the Russian capital to meet CSKA Moscow in a crucial Champions League clash on Wednesday.

Victory for Eusebio Di Francesco's men would see the Serie A side take a significant stride towards the last 16 of the Champions League, but CSKA have have lost just two of their last eight home matches in this competition.

Latest odds

Despite that impressive home record - a sequence of results that includes a 1-0 win against Real Madrid at the beginning of last month - CSKA are chalked up as an 11/4 (3.75) chance to take all three points.

Roma ran out as 3-0 winners in the most recent renewal of this fixture and the Italian side are available at even money (2.0) with William Hill to come out on top again, while the same firm go 13/5 (3.60) that the match ends all square.

Team news

Viktor Vasin and Kristijan Bistrovic join Aleksandr Makarov - who has yet to feature this term - on the sidelines for CSKA.

Diego Perotti, Rick Karsdorp, Daniele De Rossi and Luca Pellegrini all miss out for Roma, but Edin Dzeko - joint top scorer in the competition so far this season - will lead the line for Di Francesco's men.

Defensive discipline key for hosts?

CSKA have kept a clean sheet in each of their last four Champions League home wins and William Hill go 7/2 (4.50) that Roma draw a blank on Russian soil, while the same firm go 6/1 (7.0) that Viktor Goncharenko's men win to nil on Wednesday.

Prediction

There was a clear gulf in class between these teams when they met in Rome last month and Di Francesco's men can take a huge step towards the knockout stages with victory in Moscow.

William Hill offer even money (2.0) that the Serie A side pick up all three points and it is a selection that could prove profitable for punters ahead of Wednesday's crucial clash.
