Spartak Moscow vs Akhmat Grozny
Russia – Premier League
Date: Friday, 14 August 2020
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Otkrytiye Arena.
The Wolves have been on a dismal run lately, and especially so on the road. They have conceded goals in plenty, and have failed to score any in return as well. In fact, they let in three or more goals in two of the previous three overall games, while scoring not a single goal in the past three fixtures.
The People’s Team too have problems of their own, but they have succeeded to an extent in keeping their troubles away from home. To put it precisely, they have lost just twice this whole year at home, and have consistently delivered good performances here.
On top of that, they have a great h2h record at this venue over the years as well. As such, expect Spartak Moscow to be the better team on the pitch this weekend.

Spartak Moscow vs Akhmat: Prediction
The Wolves are on a four-game winless run at the moment, and they had failed to score in their last three matches. Going on, they have had a total of three wins in the whole of 2020 so far, and most importantly, they are on a three-fixture losing run against this rival.
Going on, they had conceded three or more goals in these three fixtures, and they had also lost seven of the past nine such meetings. In addition, they have won just twice at this venue in the 21st century, and they had conceded three or more goals in three of the former five h2h clashes here.
Furthermore, Tedesco’s men have lost just twice at home in 2020, and they had scored two or more goals in three of their previous five appearances at this ground.
Taking these observations into account, expect a convincing Spartak Moscow win this weekend.
