FC Orenburg vs FK Akhmat Prediction
FC Orenburg were deprived of back to back wins in their last clash after Ufa managed to hold the hosts to a stalemate at home. Nevertheless, the hosts remain unbeaten in their last three games in the league and have garnered five points from a possible nine in the process.
On the other hand, FK Akhmat have been sharing the spoils in their past three clashes in a running. Their last clash on home soil saw them play out a goalless draw alongside Ural, while on the road, Dynamo Moscow managed to hold them a 1-1 scorecard.
It is also worth mentioning that the away side are now without a win in their last four Premier League matchups. And are also just two points shy of hitting rock bottom on the ladder.
Be that as it may, the guests are unbeaten in their last two outings. Meanwhile, FC Orenburg have not come out on top in any of their past three clashes here in all competitions. Furthermore, it was the visitors who managed to secure the bragging rights in their last trip to this venue, that too by a very convincing 3-1 scorecard.
Given the positive run of form that the away side are on in their recent trips on the road, and the dismal two-game winless streak that FC Orenburg are going through at the moment, the safest punt in this one would have to a double chance backing FK Akhmat.
In addition, the visitors have been shy in racking up the goals tally in their outings, and have found the back of the net just twice in their last three. At the same time, Orenburg are without a goal to their name in their previous two games here as well.
As such, with both teams showing no conviction whatsoever in the final third, a low scoring clash is certainly looming large this weekend.
