Arsenal Tula vs FC Orenburg
Russia – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 25 August 2019
Kick-off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Stadion Arsenal (Tula).
Arsenal Tula ran out of steam in their last clash with Kazan on the road which saw them succumb to a 1-0 scoreline, subsequently bringing their two-game winning streak to a halt. The home team took twelve attempts at goal in that clash, three more than their foes, but were far from clinical in each of their efforts to beat the goalkeeper.
The visitors are one of the only two sides in the league so far to be deprived of a win. The squad went on a four-match losing streak right from the start of their campaign. Their only two points in the table, where they have hit rock bottom, have come from sharing the spoils against the newly promoted Tambov and Sochi in their most recent fixtures at home.
However, with home advantage out of the equation for the struggling Orenburg, Arsenal Tula could be in for an easy win this weekend.

Arsenal Tula vs FC Orenburg Prediction
Getting straight to it, the hosts have been taken down just once on home soil so far in the new season. Their last clash here saw them come out on top with a 1-0 scoreline over Ufa.
On the other hand, Orenburg have been at the losing end in each of their last three outings and have conceded six goals in the process while scoring just half that number.
Considering that the visitors have not got the better of Arsenal Tula in their last three visits here either, the win and the three points are more than likely to swing in favor of the hosts at the end of the ninety minutes.
Although a victory for Orenburg is definitely out of the question, it needs mentioning that the away side have been finding the back of the net at least once in each of their recent clashes. Given that Arsenal Tula have kept just one clean sheet at home, so far, as well, expect goals down each end without fail in this one.
