Anzhi Star Man Misses Newcastle Match

8 years ago

Newcastle United were given a lift in advance of their Europa League second leg match with Anzhi, as arguably the Russian team’s best player has been ruled out.

While the poor surface in Moscow appears to has set Ben Arfa back on his return from injury, Anzhi’s £30m man, Willian, will also miss tonight having gone off injured in the first leg.

The Brazilian only signed in the winter transfer window and is yet to start a domestic league match for his new team, having also missed Anzhi’s two goal defeat on Sunday, in the resumption of the Russian league season after a three month winter break.

No doubt Willian was the signing that the Russians hoped would help Anzhi kick on both domestically and in the Europa League.

Having dropped five points behind league leader CSKA on Sunday, it is now up to Newcastle United to take advantage as well.

Great odds available for the Anzhi match today, especially if you aren’t already a customer of BetVictor and take advantage of their special offer of a £25 free matched bet.
