Anzhi Makhachkala vs Akhmat
Russia – Premier League
Date: Monday, 7 May 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK
Venue: Anzhi-Arena (Kaspiysk).
Anzhi Makhachkala and Akhmat are going to face each other in the 29th round of Russian Premier League. The hosts are having very disappointing season and they are on the verge of being relegated. Currently, they are sitting on the place which leads to the relegation playout, but Tosno have the same number of points and both teams are in terrible form. Anzhi have tied four losses in a -row and they haven’t booked a win on the last five matches. They need to break this winless streak if they want to stay up at the end of the season.
Akhmat are enjoying a good streak and they haven’t suffered a defeat in the last four matches. Although they hoped of getting better position, they managed to stay clear of the trouble. They have been playing bad at the away grounds, however from the last two outings they’ve picked up four points.
Anzhi Makhachkala v Akhmat: Head-to-head
Since 2006, both sides have been equally successful when playing at Anzhi-Arena as the two teams booked three wins each. Although their head to head clashes used to be fairly efficient, in the last four we haven’t been able to see more than two goals.
Anzhi Makhachkala v Akhmat: Prediction
Vadim Skripchenko’s side needs to search for a win in front of their fans and get away from the direct relegation. Although the hosts are in a very bad form, they shouldn’t allow themselves to miss this chance of winning three valuable points, especially as the visitors are not so good when playing away from home.
Both sides are doing average job in the front, while Anzhi’s defence has allowed too many goals. This one should be tight match, not much different than the last four and it should stay under 2.5 margin.
