Krylya Sovetov vs Akhmat Grozny
Russia – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 10th November 2018
Kick-off at 13.30 UK/ 14.30 CET
Venue: Samara Arena, Samara.
Samara, a team currently languishing in the relegation spots, in the Russian Premier League, hosts Akhmat Grozny, a mid-table team – courtesy their two-point lead over their hosts.
The hosts will be ready for any challenge after their spectacular away victory against Ufa in last week’s league fixture. Sovetov scored early in the first half and led till the 67th minute before Ufa equalized. The match seemed to be going towards a draw, when in the injury time, Yakovlev scored the surprise winner.
Akhmat suffered an away defeat at the hands of Zenit last week. The loss won’t be affecting them much since the result was kind of expected. Zenit is easily the best team in the competition, and a loss against them, at their home, won’t be keeping many Grozny fans awake at night.
Krylya Sovetov vs Akhmat Grozny Head-to-head (h2h)
- Last eight wins in head-to-head matches can be split into four wins for the home team, and four for the away side.
- Samara has been winless in four of their last ten matches.
- Akhmat is winless in their last three games in a row and has just one win in their last eight ties.
- Samara is unbeaten in three of their last five home matches.
- Akhmat is winless in five of their last seven matches on the road.
Krylya Sovetov vs Akhmat Grozny Prediction
The home team has the higher chance to avoid the loss in this tie. Both teams have not been on fine form, but comparatively, Samara gets the edge. They have the home advantage, and as of lately, Akhmat has really struggled on the road.
Grozny has faced real difficulty in scoring goals, especially in away games. Akhmat has been shut out in most of their recent matches. To be precise, their last six matches in a row, saw only one or none of the teams on the scoresheet.
Expect Samara to come out of this match with at least one point. With a win and three points, they have the chance to go higher in the league table and let go of their relegation-battler tag. A win will also put them above their opponents, Akhmat Grozny.
Expect a tightly-contested match.
