CSKA Moscow v FC Basel Team News

CSKA Moscow goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev has failed to keep a clean sheet in his last 41 group-stage and knockout matches in the Champions League, with his last one coming against Arsenal in November 2006.

CSKA Moscow have scored at least 1 goal in 15 of their last 18 home games in the Champions League, while Basel have failed to score in 7 of their last 11 away games in the competition.

There have been less than 3 goals in 7 of CSKA Moscow’s last 8 home games in the Champions League, while there have been at least 3 goals in 5 of Basel’s last 6 matches at this level.

Basel ended their 9-game winless run in the Champions League with a stunning 5-0 victory at home to Benfica in their last outing, largely thanks to an inspired performance from on-loan forward Dimitri Oberlin, who scored a goal in each half on his 20th birthday.
