Altyn Asyr vs FC Asgabat
Turkmenistan – Yokary Liga
Date: Monday, 4 May 2020
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Ashgabat Stadium (Ashgabat)
This was one of the three fixtures that the champions lost last time around. They will be aiming for revenge for that disappointing result in the final game of the previous season. That game remains the only loss at home for Altyn since 2018.
The reigning champs are the only side who are still unbeaten so far. But they squandered points in games which they could have won. But the latest league action saw them defeat toppers Ahal at home which gives them the upper hand in this upcoming game.
To everyone’s surprise, FC Asgabat is second in the table. They have won three of their five matches so far and lost only once. The team from Ashgabat needs to keep this momentum going if they wish to finish better than last season.

- Altyn Asyr vs FC Asgabat: Prediction
The visitors had pretty easy opponents so far as they met Merw and Balkan at the bottom of the table. They were able to pick up a lucky win last time they visited Altyn. But the hosts have an impressive home record and are yet to lose a match this season too. The win against Ahal is an added advantage. So I think the reigning champs will have no trouble in picking up three points on Monday.
But the hosts have a problem in the backline this season. They have given away 4 goals so far and scored 7 in return. The visitors have also scored 7 in 5 matches and since they have scored against this opposition in recent times I am backing both teams to get goals.
