Akhmat Grozny vs Spartak Moscow
Russian Premier League
Date: 13th October 2017
Kick off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Akhmat Arena.
Russian Premier League is back in action after the international break on Friday evening when Akhmat Grozny host Spartak Moscow in one of the most interesting clashes of the Matchday.
The teams are all leveled at 17 points each after 12 opening rounds and a failure here would likely see the losing side out of the battle for the European positions.
The hosts can certainly be the happier side with the fifth position in the standings, but the Belarusian manager Oleg Kononov won’t stop there as he wants to get the maximum from his squad.
However, we must admit Akhmat’s for has seen a bit of a slide in the most recent period as the team picked up only two wins in last ten matches in all competitions.
The defensive line has been the main problem since Akhmat failed to keep more than two clean sheets in last ten outings.
This is something the defending champions will be looking to exploit to the max following their fine run of seven consecutive games without a defeat.
Narodnaya Komanda scored at least a goal in all matches during the mentioned streak.
The Dutch forward Quincy Promes has been the main responsible for Spartak’s revival as he notched six goals so far in the campaign (plus a brace in a 0-2 win over Kuban’ Krasnodar in the cup competition).
