PFC Sochi vs FC Orenburg Prediction
After four winless matches in the league, PFC Sochi won their previous encounter at home against FC Ural with a 2-0 scoreline. This home win will increase the morale of the players when they host again.
In a similar form, Orenburg was also winless in their last four matches before winning at home against Arsenal Tula with a 2-0 score on the board. Konstantin Yemelyanov’s team has marked five points more than the host on the table.
Their reverse fixture ended in a 1-1 draw. It was an own goal from a Sochi player that forced them to share the spoils in the match. If Belo-sinie could hold Orenburg away from home, the host has more chances of defeating them at their own turf.
Other than their better position in the league, Konstantin’s boys have nothing to boast about. They have 3 wins in their 10 away fixtures so far in the campaign. Meanwhile, the promoted contingent has 2 wins in their 10 home matches until now.
Even though the stats look to favor the visitors, their h2h clash has shown that the home team can score goals against the traveling side. To be safer in betting, we advise the punters to go with a double chance in the game.
With 1.40 odds, the double chance favoring PFC Sochi will be the best bet in the clash. Since they have shown their scoring skills, we can count on the home team to slot in a couple at Fisht Olympic. Hence, over 1.5 goals with 1.40 odds will probably yield good returns for the punters.
