Krylya Sovetov Samara vs FC Orenburg
Russia Premier League
Date: Sunday, 5 August 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: Samara Arena, Samara
The second round in Russian Premier League is bringing us a clash of Krylya Sovetov and Orenburg, teams which traditionally fight big battles in the late stages of the championship to avoid relegation. Hosts from Samara have had a better start than their opposition, so it is fair to mark them as warm favorites for the win here.
Krylya have opened the new campaign with goalless draw at this same stadium against CSKA Moscow. That point was a big success in the eyes of club board and their fans, but now the ambitions are different. High number of points secured at home is the condition for safe campaign. It is worth adding that team from Samara didn’t look good during the pre season matches, losing three and drawing only one game.
When it comes to their opponents, Orenburg lost the opener to Spartak Moscow on the road which was more or less expected outcome. Unlike their opposition, this team achieved two victories in friendly matches, having high 50% win rate.

Krylya Sovetov vs Orenburg: Prediction
Backing draw with low or mid stake is the best betting choice for this match in my opinion. Both sides have dealt really well against top teams in the opening round. The possible returns are worth the risk.
However, if you are after a safe bet for your weekend acca, Under 2.5 should be a big banker.
