Ahal vs Energetik Prediction & Match Preview

Ahal vs Energetik
Turkmenistan – Yokary Liga
Date: Tuesday, 5 May 2020
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Ashgabat Stadium.

Ahal is at the top of the table with 4 wins and a loss in 5 games. They have a 100% record intact at home and their only loss came away to Altyn. They will want to get back to winning ways to increase the lead at the top with teams like FC Asgabat and Altyn breathing down their neck.

Energetik had a disappointing season last year finishing fifth in the league. But they were well beyond the top spot in terms of points.  They started this season with a draw followed by a couple of defeats. But currently, they are on a 2 match unbeaten run. Looking at the head to head stats they have a poor record at this ground. So the team from Mary will have a hard time on Tuesday.

Ahal vs Energetik: Prediction

The last time Ahal lost a competitive home game was back in November 2018 against Energetik. But they came a long way and played great football last season. On the other hand, Energetik won the latest away game against Balkan FC after 6 losing games on the trot.

It is pretty clear from their previous meetings that a high scoring match is on the cards. Three of their recent head to head games had a score with over 2.5 goals. Ahal has already found 9 goals and is the top scorer in the league. The visitors are also capable of netting one themselves.

The hosts are fresh from the first loss of the season which was against reigning champs Altyn Asyr. But they look unbeatable at this ground as they never lost a match here last season. They also have an 8 match win streak is going on for them here. The major highlight of their home performance is that they managed to keep a clean sheet in the last 5 consecutive games. So I am backing the hosts to win and over 2.5 goals.
