Sochi vs Arsenal Tula
Russia – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 26 February 2022
Kick-off at 13:30 UK/ 14:30 CET
Venue: Fisht Olympic Stadium.
Sochi have been the best team in the competition after the two titans – Zenit, and Dinamo. They are placed third in the table, and have also scored the third-most number of goals in the league.
However, their form has slightly gone off track lately, and with plenty of teams gunning for a podium finish, it’s important that they figure out a way to get back into their groove.
And just as the doctor ordered, they have a great opportunity coming up.
They are at home this weekend, and are pitted against the relegation-threatened Arsenal Tula. This team has the worst defense in the Russian top flight, and have also been a mess on the road right from the start of the season.
By the looks of things, expect a win for Sochi this weekend at the Fisht Olympic Stadium.
