Akhmat Grozny vs Amkar Perm
Russian Premier League
Date: Sunday, 16th July 2017
Kick off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Akhmat Arena.
Akhmat Grozny’ will enter the match in a fantastic mood having bagged as many as nine goals in back-to-back wins over Young Boys and Angusht in their last two tests ahead of the Premier League kick off.
Amkar Perm’ will be their first rivals in the new edition of the top flight of Russian football and the match is scheduled to close the day in the evening hours of Sunday at Akhmat Arena.
Apart from the name change (you may know them as Terek Grozny from last year), the hosts looked for the refreshment in hiring the Belarusian manager Oleg Kononov as the new head coach for the 2017/18 season.
Akhmat have enjoyed a fantastic campaign last year when they came fifth at the end of the Premier League season.
The rock-solid defense was their main strength, but we can expect great things from their attacking lineup if we are to judge by their impressive pre-season performances in the final third.
The visitors have not been at this level as they disappointed their fans with a 0-1 defeat to Cukaricki in the final test on Monday afternoon.
The experienced Russian manager Gadzhi Gadzhiev still leads the team whose destiny will likely be the relegation battle as they don’t seem to be any stronger in comparison to the last year.
Akhmat Grozny vs Amkar Perm’: Head to head
Amkar lead the head to head tie by a single win, but they only managed to beat Akhmat twice in 11 matches in Grozny.
It is interesting to mention that both of their meetings from last season saw both teams on the scoreline.
Akhmat Grozny vs Amkar Perm’: Prediction
Amkar have been struggling a lot to claim victories on the road over the last couple of years.
Gadzhiev’s men won only a single out of last 21 matches away from Perm’. Taking Akhmat’s impressive attacking form in pre-season friendlies into consideration, we simply have no other option but to take the home win as the top betting prediction at more than acceptable 5/6 odds.
