Russia – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 25 August 2019
Kick-off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Samara Arena (Samara).
Krylya Sovetov Samara were let off the hook last week when they finally managed to bring their four-match losing streak to a close, with a 3-1 win over Ural on the road. The squad certainly stepped up their game in that clash and took eleven attempts at goal, six of which were right on target.
However, the victory was just the second in their new campaign, while their only other win came way back on the opening day.
Spartak Moscow will be coming into the matchup on Sunday after getting over a busy two weeks as the Europa playoffs were scheduled amidst their domestic campaign. Despite it all, the visitors have been coming out on top in their last four games in a row.
Their most recent clash in the league against CSKA Moscow at home saw the away side clinch the win with a narrow 2-1 scorecard, while on the road, they bagged a 3-1 victory over Akhmat Grozny.

Krylya Sovetov vs Spartak Moscow Prediction
The hosts have been at the losing end in four of their last six matches and have been admitting defeat, even with home advantage at hand.
Additionally, Samara have tasted success just once in their previous seven clashes on home soil. The visitors, on the other hand, have been coping well in their recent outings and are on a two-match winning streak at the moment.
It also needs saying that six of their last eight visits to the Samara Arena have seen Spartak Moscow secure the bragging rights. Given the formidable form they are on right now, you can certainly rule out Krylya Sovetov Samara picking up the three points this weekend.
The home team have scored nine goals in their campaign so far, six of which came on home soil. Considering that they have been getting their names on the scoresheet for three games in a row at this venue too, a high scoring clash is definitely in the cards.
