Venue: Volgograd Arena.
The Blue-cyan are the newest addition to the Premier League, and expectedly they are struggling to make any kind of an impact in this new environment. They are finding it hard to cope with the intensity and level of competition here.
As a result, they have remained 100% winless so far, and if not for a sole goalless draw, they would have had a 100% losing record.
They are placed dead-last in the table, and have scored the fewest number of goals so far – just one.
In the meantime, their counterparts have a 100% unbeaten record, and they have scored the most number of goals till now in the league – along with defending champions Zenit.
And to pile on further, they also do have a 100% unbeaten record against this opponent.
For the reasons, expect a Sochi win this Saturday.

Rotor Volgograd vs Sochi: Prediction
Vladimir Fedotov’s men have a 100% unbeaten record in the league, and they have scored the most number of goals of all the teams in the competition along with the reigning champions.
They were also unbeaten in 22 of their last 27 overall fixtures, and remained so in 10 of their previous 13 road trips.
On the other hand, their opposite number are placed dead-last in the table, and have a 100% winless record in the league. They are also massively inexperienced due to them being a newly-promoted team, and have scored the fewest number of goals so far.
And most importantly, they have a 100% winless record in h2h clashes as well.
Considering all these observations, expect Sochi to be the better team on the pitch this Saturday.
