Krylya Sovetov Samara vs FC Orenburg
Russia – Premier League
Date: Friday, 28 February 2020
Kick-off at 15:30 UK/ 16:30 CET
Venue: Samara Arena (Samara).
Teams placed 11th to 15th in the league table are separated by just three points at present, and four of these five sides are pitted against each other this game-week.
The 13th and 14th placed squads will have to take part in the relegation playoffs, while the bottom-most two will be directly given the boot. As such, we surely can expect a battle for survival this Friday.

Krylya Sovetov Samara vs FC Orenburg Prediction
Samara were defeated 2-3 at home in their latest league game, by Ural. The loss will surely hurt, considering that the former had home advantage, and an early lead. Also, the loss exposed the inability of their defense to protect leads.
In the meantime, Orenburg lost 3-0 on the road against Tambov the prior game week. It was their second loss in a row, and the sixth winless fixture from the past seven attempts. This streak has increased pressure upon them to get on top of the relegation cut-off, especially with the season approaching its final stages.
As mentioned earlier, four of the five teams locked in relegation battle are taking on each other this weekend, and the teams are split by just three points. As such, a win will not only help them improve their league standing, but will aid the victors in gaining considerable ground in the race for survival as well.
This sense of desperation, coupled with the misfiring defenses on both sides, should turn this upcoming fixture into an apparent goal-fest. Once any team concede a goal, they will abandon all defensive duties, and will go after the equalizer – which in turn will lead to further goals.
