FK Anzhi Makhackala
Following the defeat in Moscow by Lokomotiv, it’s safe to say that Anzhi’s campaign hasn’t started off as they hoped. Three points from the opening three games is below their expectations, but the season has just begun and they have the next test on Friday.
Despite Anzhi is a solid team on the home turf, Aleksandr Grigoryan’s men will have a mountain to climb against FK Rostov due to their horrendous recent performances against the guests.
The away side has already registered a victory, draw and defeat apiece. After the initial draw and surprising home defeat against Akhmat, FK Rostov beat Amkar on the road with 0-1. The latest win is certainly a confidence boost ahead of Kaspijsk visit, but Leonid Kuchuk and his team can be happy with a point from Friday’s contest.
FK Anzhi Makhackala vs FK Rostov: Head-to-head
FK Rostov dominate in the meetings between the two sides. They are undefeated in the last nine outings in all competitions. In the last three games at Anzhi Arena, the home side has been beaten twice by FK Rostov. The last Anzhi’s triumph over FK Rostov dates back to 2011.
FK Anzhi Makhackala vs FK Rostov: Prediction
This one is a 50-50 match as the odds suggest. FK Rostov will be trying to utilize the momentum from the latest victory in Perm, while Anzhi are striving for points, especially in front of their own crowd. FK Rostov’s matches are low-scoring most of the time, hence the clash at Anzhi Arena could be decided with a single effort.
