Date: Saturday, 11 April 2020

Venue: Stadion Istaravshan.
The home team started off the season with an away defeat to Khatlon. Despite scoring early in the first half they could not prevent defeat after an extra-time winner form Boboev of Khatlon. They will be looking to get back to winning ways against a familiar rival.
Kuktosh met Regar-TadAZ in their first league season and managed to draw that contest. This will be their first away match of this season and they will need to play smart against Istaravshan.
These sides finished 5th and 6th respectively in the previous season. Both of them had 27 points but Istaravshan had a better goal difference.

Istaravshan vs Kuktosh: Prediction
The home side has never lost in 5 home matches on the row. They are also unbeaten against this opposition in 2 previous occasions. The away form of Kuktosh is very poor as they have only 2 wins in 10 previous trips. So taking all these facts into consideration I am backing a win for the home team.
More than 2.5 goals were scored in 5 of the last 9 matches of Istaravshan. A similar scoreline can also be seen in 5 of their recent home matches as well. In 3 recent fixtures of the visitors also the final scored had a total of more than 2.5 goals. So I am hoping we can see a high scoring game yet again in this meeting.
