FK Akhmat vs CSKA Moscow
Russia – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 30 August 2020
Kick-Off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Akhmat-Arena (Groznyj)
Akhmat ended up thirteenth in the table mainly because of the head to head points last season. They were still equal on points with the team relegated- Sovetov Samara. They cannot ride on luck this time too as luck runs out at some point in time. They have started this campaign well but need to keep up the good work for a top ten finish. Currently, they are on a three-match winning streak, something which the top teams are yet to achieve.
CSKA is the opposite of their upcoming opponents in terms of form. They started the season with back to back wins and currently, they are without a win in three matches on the trot. So this is a must-win if they wish to reduce the gap with a top-five finish.
FK Akhmat vs CSKA Moscow: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Red Blues are on a five-game winning streak against this opposition.
- Akhmat won this fixture previously back in August 2017.
- More than 2.5 goals were scored in three of their five recent clashes.
- The visitors have won all their last four trips to this ground.
- They kept a clean sheet in all five previous head to head games at this ground.
FK Akhmat vs CSKA Moscow: Prediction
The away win against Lokomotiv Moscow showed the fighting spirit of the team from Grozny. Even though they won that game 2-3, they were under real pressure at the latter part of the game. The red card in that game will mean they will miss some important personnel for this upcoming game. In the only home match this year they have won 3-1 against the newbie Volgograd. On the other hand, CSKA is winless in its last two games on the road. But they have been dominating this opposition for so long now.
Even in the three matches, they won the Wolves have conceded in every single game. From five matches they netted eight goals and gave away six. The defense is also the issue that has been haunting the visitors. They have also given away more goals than the number of matches played. So I am backing the match to draw with goals from both squads.
