FC Orenburg vs Spartak Moscow Prediction
Yemelyanov’s men won 2-0 at home over Arsenal Tula the last match-day. The victory gave them the hope to stay clear of the impending relegation, and with very few games remaining in the competition, it was absolutely required for the squad.
In the meantime, the Red-Whites were defeated 0-1 at home by Krasnodar. While the loss was heartbreaking, the fact that it was against a team from the top-most tier, gives peace to the fans as well as players. However, they will have to make up for the lost points against weaker squads.
In that regards, either of these outfits for the upcoming encounter could be considered as weak ones. They are placed in the vicinity of the relegation zone, and both have so far had to deal with their own leaky defenses.
On top of that, considering each other the perfect opponent to record a win against, both sets of players will go all in for the win, and will likely give less importance to their defensive duties. Moreover, only once each have these teams failed to find the back of the net in h2h clashes this past decade.
In addition, every single h2h clash at this venue have had over 1.5 match goals, and disregarding one single encounter, every overall h2h match-up have had two or more goals.
Taking all these observations into account, it’s inferred that we are in line to witness a goal-fest this Saturday.
