PFC Sochi vs Arsenal Tula Prediction
Sochi were held to a 1-1 draw in their latest league game at home, against Kazan. It was their seventh official winless game in a row, and on top of that, they were held to a draw by another relegation-battler.
In the meantime, Arsenal Tula recorded a 4-0 win over Lokomotiv Moscow. The huge win, that too against a team in contention for the Europa League, would be a huge confidence-booster for the squad.
In regards to the result this Sunday, understand that Sochi are the dead-last team in the competition, and are on course to get relegated. They have secured a total of three wins so far in the league campaign, and have had a single win at home. Do keep note that the sole victory had come against a relegation-battler.
On the other hand, Arsenal are placed sixth in the table, just below the European spots. They are also on a two-game winning run, and both wins had come against teams in the top-most tier. On the road, they are on a five-match unbeaten run, and kept clean sheets in their former two PL games on the road.
Taking into account these observations, it’s expected that Arsenal Tula are about to deliver the stronger performance this match-day.
