Orenburg vs Yenisey Prediction & Match Preview

Orenburg vs Yenisey
Russian Premier League
Date: Saturday, 20 October 2018
Kick-Off at 09:30 UK / 10:30 CET
Venue: Stadion Gazovik (Rostoshi).

Orenburg continued to impress when they stunned the third-placed Rostov 0-1 on the road in the previous round. Sergey Terekhov’s early goal proved out to be the difference-maker at Rostov Arena as Vladimir Fedotov’s men broke back into the top half of the league ladder.

The hosts will have a great opportunity to build on such success and make it two league wins on the bounce on Saturday morning when they host the rock-bottomed Yenisey at Stadion Gazovik. It will be the clash between two sides that featured the second class of Russian football last year.

Unlike the hosts, Yenisey find it very tough to adjust to the top flight football. They took just five points form ten games so far and deservedly sit at the very foot of the league standings coming into Saturday’s trip to Rostoshi.

Orenburg vs Yenisey: Head-to-head

This will be the first ever head to head encounter between the two teams in the elite tier of Russian football.

The draw was the most common of outcomes in 13 games they played so far, happening on as many as seven occasions in the process.

Orenburg have a positive record with four wins and only two losses.

Only one of last 11 head to head affairs saw three or more goals scored.

Orenburg vs Yenisey: Prediction

We see the hosts as a side much closer to the win based on everything written above. They have been pretty tough to break down ever since the season began. They shipped just one goal in last three games in all competitions even though the opposition in last two included the likes of CSKA Moscow and Rostov.

Yenisey, on the other side, boast league’s weakest defensive record with 16 goals conceded in 10 matches. They head into this with four defeats on the bounce and we can hardly see them bouncing back against a highly-motivated opponent here.

The Under 2.5 goals FT obviously pops up as a must-take bet as well knowing that just one of last eleven head to head encounters brought three or more goals.

Orenburg vs Yenisey: Bet Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.44 (4/9)
  • Orenburg to keep a clean sheet @ 2.10 (11/10).
