FK Akhmat vs FC Rotor Volgograd
Russia – Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 19 August 2020
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
These two are the only teams yet to score a goal in this edition of the competition so far. For Andrei Talalayev’s men, this is just playing with fire.
They had barely managed to avoid relegation the last campaign, after finishing in the 13th position with 31 points. Note that the 15th placed Sovetov Samara were given the boot to the lower division, and they too had 31 points against their name.
Likely, the Wolves need to garner as much points as they could against the minnows of the tournament, and the Blue-cyan are easily one of the weakest teams here.
They are massively inexperienced, as they had been promoted to the top flight just at the end of the last season. This is their first campaign at the top of the football hierarchy in Russia, after 16 years.
For the reasons, count on Akhmat to post a much-needed three points this Tuesday.

Akhmat vs Rotor Volgograd: Prediction
Alyaksandr Khatskevich’s men have not won an official game since March, and they have not scored an official goal either in the period. They are also massively inexperienced, and are finding it hard to cope with the intensity of this top flight.
On the other hand, their counterparts are seasoned veterans of the Premier League, and are desperate to make full use of this fixture. They have set themselves an objective of securing as many points as they could against the weaker teams of the league – to avoid the threat of relegation like in 2019.
Moreover, they have a 100% winning record in h2h clashes at this venue, and have not conceded a single goal in those games till now.
Considering these stats, expect a winning performance from Akhmat this Wednesday.
