FK Akhmat vs Krasnodar
Russia – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 14 July 2019
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Akhmat-Arena (Groznyj).
One more point the last season, and Krasnodar could have altogether avoided the qualification process, and get a direct entry into the Champions League. They had tried their level best for the same, but Lokomotiv Moscow proved to be too good in that regards.
Both had finished on the same points, and Krasnodar did have the superior goal difference, but the rules of the Premier League state that, h2h points count first in case of a tie in the table.
The team will be determined to not leave such things of matter to luck anymore and will be going strong from the beginning.
Opponents Grozny, meanwhile, finished four points below the cut-off for a Europa League entry. With them having the home advantage for this fixture, they too will be focused to start strong and make an improved assault on continental entry.
FK Akhmat vs Krasnodar Head-to-head (h2h)

- Four of the last five wins at this venue went to the visitors.
- The last three games at this stadium satisfied the BTTS pick.
FK Akhmat vs Krasnodar Prediction
Krasnodar is a CL entrant from Russia, while their counterparts failed to even make Europa. Also, the top-tier squad was unbeaten in 13 of their last 16 matches, and had a ten-game invincible streak, before their two losses in club friendlies.
On the road, they are unbeaten in their last six fixtures and won the last three as well. They also managed to score two or more goals in the last three road trips.
Importantly, Krasnodar had recorded nine of the last eleven h2h wins and four of the last five at this venue. As such, expect them to come out on top this Sunday. But considering their away handicap, we’ll play it safe with a DNB.
On that same note, Akhmat found the back of the net in their last seven match-ups, and in their last 17 at home. Also, four of the last five h2h encounters had goals from both teams, and so did the last three at this venue. Moreover, the guests for the day had conceded goals in 15 of their last 17 road trips too.
With these in mind, BTTS emerges as a favorite to be backed.
