FC Rostov vs FK Akhmat Prediction & Match Preview

FC Rostov vs FK Akhmat
Russia – Premier League
Date: Monday, 16 September 2019
Kick-off at 18:30 UK / 19:30 CET
Venue: Rostov Arena (Rostov).

FC Rostov are on a stellar form in the league at the moment and are breathing down the necks of both Krasnodar and Zenit for the top spot on the ladder. The hosts have bounced back from the shock defeat to Ufa on the road and have been recording back to back wins in their last two clashes since, the most recent of which was a 2-1 win over Lokomotiv Moscow, that too at the RZD Arena.

On the other hand, their foes, FK Akhmat have been struggling to taste success in their last four games in a row. The visitors were forced to share the spoils with FC Tambov in their previous clash at home, while on the road, there were at the losing end of a 3-0 scoreline against CSKA Moscow.

Taking into account the dismal streak that Akhmat are on at the moment, FC Rostov will be eying all three points for the taking this Monday.

FC Rostov vs FK Akhmat Prediction

The home team are yet to admit defeat at the Rostov Arena and have so far managed to register three wins and a draw from their last four games.

Additionally, Rostov took out the runners up of last season in their previous outing, which is surely an indication of the team’s admirable form at the moment.

Apart from missing out on the win, it also needs saying that FK Akhmat have not been able to get their names on the scoresheet in any of their outings so far. Considering that their previous visit to this stadium also saw them return empty-handed, the chances of Akhmat causing any trouble whatsoever to the hosts is looking terribly bleak.

Furthermore, on home soil, Rostov have been consistent in finding the back of the net before the break in their last four games in a row. With the away side conceding a goal in the first half in two of their last four trips on the road as well, you can certainly count on the hosts to slot the ball home before the end of the opening forty-five minutes.
