Kuktosh vs Khujand Prediction & Match Preview

Kuktosh vs Khujand
Tajikistan – Vysshaya Liga
Date: Wednesday, 22 April 2020
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Oilfield stadium (Rudaki).

After 2 matches the runners-up of last season are in a spot of bother. They started off with a win but against CSKA Pomir away from home. But they tasted defeat in their first home match against Khatlon. So this upcoming game will be crucial in the future of this season. They have always won against this opposition which gives them hope going into this match.

Kuktosh is the only side other than toppers Istiqlol to keep a clean sheet till now. They are fresh from an away win against Istaravshan. Kuktosh managed to keep the majority of possession and a red card to the hosts made things easier for them in the second half.

Kuktosh vs Khujand: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Khujand has won all the head to head matches against this opposition.
  • In 4 of their 6 previous meetings, the score had over 2.5 goals in total.
  • Both sides scored in 4 of those 6 matches as well.

Kuktosh vs Khujand: Prediction

There is no doubt that there will be goals in this one. Two recent meetings between them at this ground saw a score-line with more than 2.5 goals.  In 66% of their head to head games, a similar score has been recorded. Also taking into consideration they have scored an average of at least a goal per game; I am backing both squads to get in the score sheet on Saturday.

Khujand may have started poorly, but they still have the squad strength to beat Kuktosh. Kuktosh will be worried about the fact that they lost every match against these visitors. So I hope that Khujand will get back to winning ways on this weekend matchup.
