PFC Sochi vs FK Akhmat
Russia – Premier League
Date: Monday, 30 September 2019
Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Fisht Olympic Stadium (Sochi).
PFC Sochi’s maiden Premier League campaign has finally taken a turn for the better as the squad have admitted defeat just once in their last three games.
The hosts took down Dynamo Moscow in a fiercely fought five-goal thriller which finished 3-2 in their favor while their previous home match saw them lose by a very narrow 1-0 scoreline against the reigning champions.
FK Akhmat failed to end their five-game winless drought in their respective clash at home the other week after Samara came back from behind to level the scores at 1-1. The visitors have been dismal in their outings as well, the last of which saw them at the losing end of a 2-1 scorecard against FK Rostov.
Given the away side’s struggle on the road, PFC Sochi have every reason to be confident of climbing up the ladder this week.

PFC Sochi vs FK Akhmat Prediction
Aleksandr Tochilin’s men are yet to taste success at home. However, to their defense, two of their last three games here were against the reigning champions and the runners up respectively, while their only other clash saw them salvage a point.
Furthermore considering that they have picked up the win twice in their previous three clashes, it is certainly worth mentioning that hosts have been showing signs of resurgence. On the other hand, FK Akhmat have the worst away record in the cluster and have so far found the back of the net just once in their last five trips.
Given that they have also been deprived of even a point in four of their last five outings, PFC Sochi are the favorites to come out on top in this one. However, the safest option would have to be a draw no bet backing the hosts.
Additionally, Sochi are yet to open their account with a goal of their own at home. Taking into account that only one of the seven goals for FK Akhmat in the new season have come on the road, by all means, expect a low scoring clash with fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts.
