Dynamo Moscow vs Akhmat Grozny
Russian Premier League
Date: Saturday, 27 April 2019
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Arena Khimki.
Dynamo Moscow sit in the immediate danger zone in Premier League after a comfortable 2-0 loss in the hands of Zenit midway through the week, now hosting Akhmat for their Matchday 26 clash looking to bounce back quickly and build towards the mid-table.
White-Blues have thus seen a three-game unbeaten streak but we can’t say they’ve been in top shape, as they only shared spoils with Anzhi and Krasnodar before beating Krylya Sovetov 1-0 last week. They’ve been conceding goals on the regular and failed to cope, which will give Dmitry Khokhlov a lot to think about late in the season.
FK Akhmat have, on the other hand, beaten Anzhi and held Krasnodar to a 1-1 draw in the last two outings, coming into the match in a seemingly better mood with a five-point gap to the league’s top 5. However, they have a lot to prove as they search for their fourth consecutive win on the road and many question if they have what it takes to snatch the points now.
Dynamo Moscow vs Akhmat Grozny: Head-to-head
The sides have shared spoils in both of the last two head-to-head clashes.
Dynamo have last beaten Akhmat in 2014, with two losses and four draws seen in six matchups since then.
We’ve seen two or fewer goals on all of those six occasions, which does promise another narrow occasion here.
Dynamo Moscow vs Akhmat Grozny: Prediction
However, we feel Akhmat will now be able to cause an upset and send the rivals further into the danger zone, as we stick with a Double Chance – Draw or Akhmat to win – which feels like a banker bet at 1.57 with Moscow’s struggles taken into concern.
We don’t believe we’ll see many goals, though, and the visitors should be forced into a narrow contest for the points. With that in mind, we’re now also backing Under 2.5 goals FT at 1.62 which feels just as safe of an approach to the fixture at this point.
