PFC Sochi vs Khimki
Russia – Premier League
Date: Friday, 14 August 2020
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Fisht Olympic Stadium.
The Leopards held Spartak Moscow to a 2-2 draw on the road the last match-day in their season-opener, whereas the Red-Blacks lost 0-2 on the road against CSKA Moscow. It was an expected result for the latter, as they had played their first game in the top flight after getting promoted.
Vladimir Fedotov’s men will try to make use of this inexperience of their opponents for the day, and make amends for their draw in the first game.
Moreover, the Leopards have a great record at home in the past several weeks, and importantly, they have a 100% winning record in h2h fixtures at home against this rival.
For the reasons, expect a winning effort from Sochi this weekend.
Sochi vs Khimki: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Fedotov’s men have a 100% unbeaten record against this opponent.
- They have a 100% winning record at this venue as well.
- They have also scored three or more goals in all of their fixtures at this stadium.
- The latest clash between the two had ended in a goalless draw.
Sochi vs Khimki: Prediction
Dmitri Gunko’s men are on a two-fixture losing run, and they had failed to score goals in both these matches. Going on, they were also winless in five of their last seven road games, and had failed to score in their latest such trip as well.
On the other hand, the Leopards are on a six-match unbeaten run at home, and had won an impressive five of these games. Also note that they had scored a total of 21 goals from these six fixtures.
Moreover, they have a 100% unbeaten record against this opponent, and most importantly, the Red-Blacks have just been promoted to the top flight, and they are massively inexperienced as well. And on top of that, Fedotov’s men have a 100% winning record in h2h clashes at this stadium too.
By all means, expect a Sochi win this Friday.
