FK Akhmat vs PFC Sochi Match preview
Akhmat Grozny started the league post lockdown with a 2-4 win on the road against Samara last time out in their schedule. It was the first win within their last five league fixtures.
With just 2 wins in their 12 home matches so far, the host doesn’t give a powerful impression for using their home ground advantage.
PFC Sochi is on a four-game winning streak in the campaign, following a 10-1 win at home against FK Rostov in their previous encounter.
It has to be noted that their last six overall fixtures in the schedule have been at home. They have 2 wins from their 19 away fixtures until now and their prior trip was in November 2019.
In their reverse fixture this season, Sochi had the bragging rights with a 2-0 home win. With both teams at their own differences in the match, it is likely to be a tight encounter in ninety minutes.

FK Akhmat vs PFC Sochi Prediction
The match is sizing to be anyone’s game.
The host is back on their winning tracks after four winless games and a not-so-bright home record in their form.
Sochi will be on the back of a winning streak in the campaign but hasn’t been on the road for almost 7 months.
Despite being a promoted side, the visitor has shown their capacity in the league as it is clear from the four points lead over the experienced home team in the table.
The double chance favoring either of the teams to win will be the best bet in the clash. At 1.40 odds, it will be the safest tip for the punters to yield decent returns from the game.
Besides, both teams will meet after high-scoring affairs for each post lockdown. The tip for over 1.5 goals will thus be a suitable option for the punters at 1.40 odds.
