Orenburg vs Spartak Moscow
Russian Premier League
Date: Sunday, 26 May 2019
Kick-Off 12:00 UK / 13:00 CET
Venue: Stadion Gazovik (Rostoshi).
Spartak Moscow overtook bitter city rivals CSKA Moscow in the battle for the fourth-place thanks to a three-game winning streak.
Narodnaya Komanda thus head into the last Matchday of the season with a one-point cushion on Armeitsy and they need a victory against non-motivated Orenburg to secure the top-four finish and a place in the group phase of the Europa League next season.
Oleg Kononov’s men tighten things up at the back recently. They shipped just one goal during the three-win thread.
Their stern defensive line will, however, face a serious test on Sunday when they come face to face with a side which bagged two goals in each of last two league affairs.
Much like the visitors, Orenburg go into this high on confidence after a 0-2 victory away at Ufa last weekend.
Orenburg vs Spartak Moscow: Head-to-head
Orenburg have never been a tricky opposition to Spartak Moscow.
Narodnaya Komanda won three and drew one of four head to head games.
The only draw came in a mid-season friendly back in mid-February this year.
Orenburg vs Spartak Moscow: Prediction
The rock-solid defensive line is what carried Spartak Moscow throughout the entire season basically. The visitors have been inconsistent with their form ever since the start of the campaign, but they rarely shipped more than one goal in a match.
Narodnaya Komanda allowed only 13 goals in 14 away games this season. Orenburg shipped just 12 in the same number of matches on the home patch.
Knowing that Spartak claimed only a narrow 1-0 victory when these two likes met each other in the first half of the season, the Under 2.5 goals FT is our primary betting suggestion at the odds of 1.90.
Punters who would like to try with a correct score longshot can back Spartak Moscow to win 0-1 at 7.00. Kononov’s men won two of past three league ties with this scoreline.
