FC Rostov vs Anzhi Makhachkala
Russia – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 27th October 2018
Kick-off at 17.00 UK/ 18.00 CET
Venue: Rostov Arena, Rostov.
The fifth-placed FC Rostov takes on the relegation-threatened Anzhi Makhachkala at the Rostov Arena this Saturday. Both teams come into this match with their own agendas to execute.
Though at the fifth spot with 18 points, just a single point separates Rostov from the second-placed Krasnodar. The Rostov players will use every ounce of energy they have at disposal to climb to a better spot in the table and an opportunity to host an Anzhi who has their relegation battle going on, will not be wasted.
Anzhi has had a terrible season so far and their woes seem to have no end. They have scored the least number of goals so far in the Premier League matches this year and have conceded the second-most. It is likely that they will go further down the table after this match.

FC Rostov vs Anzhi Makhachkala Prediction
The home team who has set their sights on the championship spots are a cut above for the visitors. They will have no answers for the constant attacking threats that will fly down their weakened wing defence.
Expect Rostov to dominate the proceedings from the first minute itself. There is all probability for an early goal. And there’s really no comeback for Anzhi once they concede. All they could do after that is to limit further damages, which does not seem likely either.
