FK Rostov vs Krylya Sovetov
Russian Premier League
Date: Saturday, 11 August 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK
Venue: Rostov Arena (Rostov).
FK Rostov and Krylya SOvetov are going to wrap up Saturday’s action in the 3rd round of Russian Premier League.
Home side opened the campaign very successfully as they booked two narrow wins and managed to keep the clean sheet. They were better than CSKA Moscow in the match played at away ground where they put a very quality display.
Rostov didn’t enjoy much success in the previous season as they finished in the bottom half of the table, on 11th place. However, they haven’t been too far from the top six and they needed only six more points to secure the place in Europa League. Their clashes have been very inefficient and although they haven’t produced too many goals, their defence was pretty tight.
The visitors got freshly promoted as they were the runners-up in the second tier. Andrei Tikhonov’s side has been very productive, while their defence was the tightest in the competition.
However, in the current campaign they picked up just a point and failed to score, but in the latest round they held CSKA Moscow to a goalless draw. This is going to be their first match away from home in the season.
Rostov vs Krylya Sovetov Head-to-head
Home side has been much more successful in their head to head encounters recently as they tied five matches without being defeated by their rivals. In that period, FK Rostov managed to celebrate a victory three times. When these two sides are facing each other, the crowd is not able to enjoy many goals.
Rostov vs Krylya Sovetov Prediction
This is going to be a very close match, but we believe the hosts are slight favourites for winning another three points. Timofey Kalachev and the lads are more than capable of continuing their winning streak at the beginning of the season.
We are going to follow the tradition of their head to head clashes and go with another low-scoring one. Since both teams haven’t been too productive, this one is going to stay under 2.5 margin.
