In 1901 the Catalan club changed its name to Club Espanol de Futbol. Los Periquitos used to play in bright yellow shirts in the past, but current colour of the teams home kit is blue and white. Espanyol were founded in 1900 and their original name was Sociedad Espanola de Football. Espanyol are a Catalan club that plays in Spanish La Liga.

However, they drew with Ferencvaros in their opening game, which has given them a boost going into this meeting with CSKA. While the visitors are heading here in the bottom three in La Liga, you wouldnt guess that by their away form so far. The visitors are in a very different position, having failed to win any of their last four games.

However, that was quickly forgotten in their last clash, as they were thumped by Bulgarian opposition. The hosts are looking good for domestic success this season, with a two-point lead at the top in Russia. However, can they bounce back or was that defeat part of their wider struggles in Europe? Theres now a huge task on the hoss hands just to make it out of this group, while they certainly need a response.

Prediction CSKA Moscow-RCD Espanyol: 1x (Odd 1.42)

CSKA are a real force to be reckoned with at home, therefore, we predict that they are going to beat Espanyol at VEB Arena. Los Periquitos came from behind to share the spoils with Ferencvaros in Barcelona in the opening match of their Europa League campaign, with the team experiencing all sorts of problems at the back in a 2-0 loss to Real Valladolid in their last league match.

The visitors have claimed 100% of their league points on the road this season. They are unbeaten in three La Liga trips, while they head into this game aiming to stretch that and pile the pressure onto CSKA. Espanyol are unbeaten in their last 22 games in all European competitions (W16 D6 L0) since they were eliminated in the last 32 of the UEFA Cup by Schalke in 2005-06. After all, the away side have built up a fine record on the continent over the years.

They conceded two goals or more in their final four Europa League games last season, while we expect Espanyol to take advantage. The visitors have lost just one of their last 15 away trips in the Europa League. They come here with some strong results on the road behind them, while CSKA have won just once in their last five in this competition.

Now the 2005 UEFA Cup champions will have to progress the hard way but if anything, that defeat proved that Viktor Goncharenkos side have some defensive frailties. In five away games in all competitions this season, Espanyol have netted in four of them whilst CSKA have scored in their last seven games in all competitions making both teams to score to good to ignore. CSKA were stunned after suffering a 5-1 defeat to Ludogorets in game week one despite being one of the favourites with popular sportsbooks to make it through the group with relative ease.
