Shinnik Yaroslavl vs Ural Prediction

Shina had made a mess of things in the previous round of the competition. They were on the road, and had taken on Nizhny Novgorod. The guests raced to a 0-2 lead, but conceded two late goals in spite of having the numerical advantage on the pitch. Also note that the second goal by the hosts had come in the 90th minute.

Later, it took three missed penalties by the home team for Shina to progress to the Quarters. Such a struggling performance will surely have raised doubts about their chances against a team from the Premier League.

Meanwhile, the Bumblebees too had to depend on the penalty shootout to make it to this round. They were at home, and had ended regular time and extra time with a 2-2 scoreline against Arsenal Tula.

In regards to result this Wednesday, the fact that the Bumblebees are far more experienced and battle-hardened than their counterparts will surely make an impact. On top of that, Shina had lost the latest h2h fixture, and they also had failed to score against this opponent in two of the former three h2h encounters.

Moreover, the Bumblebees have been impressive on the road this whole season, disregarding some minor stumbles against some of the best teams in the country. As such, expect a win for Ural this game week.

However, do understand that this is a knock-out game with no second leg. Shina have the home advantage, and will try desperately to get into the semis. They do not have anything to lose, and have everything to gain. Furthermore, only once have they even failed to score against this rival at this venue since 2007.

Considering these stats, it’s inferred that both teams will score goals at the Arena Khimki.
