Arsenal Tula vs Krylya Sovetov
Russian Premier League
Date: Saturday, 15 September 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadion Arsenal (Tula).
Arsenal Tula host Krylya Sovetov in a low-profile seventh round tie on Saturday afternoon. The host will be looking for the second win of the season against new boys in the top flight football. Nevertheless, it’s the visitors who come into the match higher on confidence following the narrow 1-0 victory over fellow strugglers Anzhi two weeks ago.
It was the second win of the campaign for Perya who managed to escape the drop zone and jump above Arsenal in the league ladder. It was substitute forward Sergey Kornilenko who bagged the match-winner seven minutes from time two weeks ago at Samara Arena. Interestingly, it was only the second goal Krylya Sovetov scored in six games of the season. The first one also brought them a three-pointer a month ago away at Rostov.
Arsenal Tula vs Krylya Sovetov: Head-to-head
This will be the third head to head encounter between the two teams.
They played each other in the 2016/17 campaign when Arsenal Tula took four points from two fixtures with Perye.
The match at Samara Arena ended in a 1-1 draw, while Arsenal took a 2-0 victory on the home patch in Tula.
Arsenal Tula vs Krylya Sovetov: Prediction
Both teams have been struggling badly for goals at the start of the season and we just can’t imagine a high-scoring scenario when they take on each other at Samara Arena. The hosts scored just three goals in six games, but still have a better record than Perya who only managed to find the back of the net twice so far in the season.
Given the match has a huge importance for both sides who’ll struggle down in the relegation battle this season, the Under 2.5 goals FT is a banker bet at 1.44 odds. Braver tipsters can try with a goalless draw at 6.50 based on everything written above.
Arsenal Tula vs Krylya Sovetov: Bet Tips
