Anzhi vs Ural
Russian Premier League
Date: Sunday, 26 May 2019
Kick-Off 12:00 UK / 13:00 CET
Venue: Anzhi-Arena (Kaspiysk).
Anzhi and Ural will meet each other in a low-profile Russian Premier League tie on Sunday in Kaspiysk.
Teams already know their destinies coming into this last round fixture. The hosts, who had to feature relegation play-offs to save the top flight status last season, have been dropped to the second division football.
Anzhi took just 21 points in 15 league games and sit second from bottom ahead of the final Matchday. The gap between them and Ufa (in the relegation play-offs) is five points.
Ural travel to Kaspiysk after a heart-breaking 1-0 loss to Lokomotiv Moscow in the Russian Cup Wednesday.
The Ukrainian manager Dmytro Parfenov will thus likely face problems finding the way to motivate his lads after a loss in such an important affair which could have sent the team into Europa League next season.
The contrast is huge in this weekend’s tie at Anzhi-Arena as Ural have already secured survival in the top flight of the Russian football.
Anzhi Makhachkala vs Ural Head-to-head
Ural lead the head to head tie by four wins coming into the 21st meeting with Orly.
Anzhi, however, celebrated a surprising 0-1 victory when they visited Ural at the start of the season in late-July last year.
Last two head to head games between the two sides ended with an identical 1-0 scoreline.
Anzhi Makhachkala vs Ural: Prediction
Anzhi were probably the most out-of-form team in the entire league in 2019. Interestingly, Orly began the year with a 0-1 win at Orenburg, but they have lost nine and drawn two of following eleven matches. The lack of creativity in their build-up play was the main reason for such a horrendous streak of results.
Orly have by far the weakest attacking record in the entire league with just 13 goals scored in 29 outings. They failed to find the back of the net in last two games (a 0-1 loss to Arsenal Tula and a 0-0 draw at Rubin Kazan).
Under 2.5 goals FT is the best of betting options you can take from this one at 1.66 odds.
