Anzhi vs Amkar Perm
Russian Premier League
Date: Friday, 21st July 2017
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Anzhi and Amkar Perm’ will be hoping to snatch their first points in the new Premier League campaign this Friday when they are set to open the Matchday No 2 at Anzhi-Arena.
The hosts had a very tough task to play CSKA Moscow at the start of the new season.
One of the contenders for the very top of the table did not have any troubles claiming points from Anzhi-Arena as CSKA picked up a comfortable 1-3 victory at the weekend.
Aleksandr Grigoryan’s squad has seen plenty of changes during the summer transfer window, but another relegation battle is the harsh reality for the team from Kaspiysk.
Amkar’s ambitions have also suffered a serious blow with departures of Aleksandr Selikhov and Branko Jovicic.
The team led by Gadzhi Gadzhiev clearly has huge issues with the efficiency in the final third.
Amkar failed to find the back of the net in both their final friendly test with Serbian Cukaricki and the opening round of Premier League with Akhmat Grozny.
Anzhi vs Amkar Perm’: Head to head
Anzhi have been pretty convincing in home fixtures with Amkar as they won four and lost only a single of their six home meetings with the Perm’ side.
The hosts have won the previous encounter played in early-December last year when they claimed a 3-1 victory.
Anzhi vs Amkar Perm’: Prediction
Anhzi’s defensive line looks quite solid in pre-season friendlies and we would not be surprised to see them keeping the clean sheet against attackingly limited Amkar Perm’.
Under 2.5 goals FT seems to be a banker bet, while our longshot would be chasing the hosts to claim a narrow 1-0 win at the 11/2 odds.
Anzhi vs Amkar Perm’: Bet Tips
The top bet is Under 2.5 goals FT at the odds of 19/40.
You can alternatively chase the value in backing 1-0 correct score at the 11/2 odds.
