FK Akhmat vs FC Ufa Prediction
FK Akhmat missed out on the chance to record back to back wins last week after Kazan came back from behind to post a 1-1 draw through Kvaratskhelia, who bagged an equalizer in stoppage time. The hosts took seven shots on target in that latter matchup, as opposed to their foes who managed just two and only have themselves to blame for squandering their opportunity to come away with the win.
Nevertheless, with no more than nineteen points in the bag, the home side are dangerously close to falling into the relegation zone.
Meanwhile, FC Ufa finally gave their faithful a reason to cheer about in their most recent matchup against Samara on the road. Lovro Bizjak scored the only goal of the game in that clash, bringing their seven-match winless streak to a halt in the process.
Be that as it may, the visitors have been at their worst away from home this season. They have just one win from their outings so far. And have been branded as the second-worst away side in the cluster as well.
Also, FC Ufa have been at the losing end in each of their past two visits here. Taking into account that FK Akhmat have stumbled just twice on home soil, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of the hosts this weekend.
However, the home side have shared the spoils in four of their previous five games here. Considering that FC Ufa have also salvaged just a point at the most, in half of their last eight clashes on the road, the safest punt in this one would be backing a double chance.
Furthermore, neither side have been showing any conviction in the final third. The hosts have found the back of the net just thrice in their past five games here. On the other hand, FC Ufa have scored just three goals in their outings so far. Which, is also the least by any side in the table as of now.
Hence, count on no more than a goal or two on the final scorecards come Saturday.
