Arsenal Tula vs Khimki
Russia – Premier League
Date: Tuesday, 25 August 2020
Kick-off at 18:30 UK/ 19:30 CET
Venue: Stadion Arsenal.
The Red-Blacks have just made an entry into the top flight, and that too after an eleven-month absence. It goes without saying that they are struggling to accept the new reality that they are no longer the top dogs in their competition.
In terms of quality as well as competition, the Premier League is proving to be too hot to handle for Dmitri Gunko’s men.
The Gunsmiths know this, and they will make every effort to exploit this scenario. They have not made an impressive start to their season, despite finishing just three points off a European spot in 2019-20.
They need a win at any cost this Tuesday, and will count on their experience to help them in this job.
Arsenal Tula vs Khimki: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest encounter between the two had come five years back. Then, Sergei Podpaly’s men recorded a 0-2 win on the road.
- So far, they have a 100% winning record against this opponent, and have not conceded a single goal in the process as well.
Arsenal Tula vs Khimki: Prediction
Not only are Gunko’s men one of the newest in the competition, but as expected, they are also one of the worst here. In fact, if not for their draw against Sochi (a team that was promoted to this league just a season before), they would have had a 100% losing record this season.
In the meantime, in spite of their shaky start, the Gunsmiths have started to make amends for it. They had won their latest game 2-0, and that too against tough customers Dynamo Moscow.
They had finished in the top tier the last campaign, just three points short of a European entry, and will make use of this experience to secure a win against this opponent.
Moreover, Podpaly’s men do have a perfect winning record against them over the years.
