Tambov vs Orenburg Prediction
Tambov dropped points for the second time in running after they played out a stalemate against Krasnodar on the road. It is also worth mentioning that Tambov have been erratic in their recent clashes on home soil, and have been alternating between wins and defeats in their previous four games.
With no more than eighteen points to their name, the hosts are now sitting fifteenth on the ladder, and are just four points adrift of hitting rock bottom.
On the other hand, FC Orenburg had their two-match unbeaten streak brought to an abrupt halt after Akhmat Grozny edged past them with a narrow 2-1 scorecard. Nevertheless, the visitors have admitted defeat just twice in their last seven games in the Premier League.
It is also worth mentioning that the away side have not been at the losing end in any of their previous four outings in the top flight. They have also garnered ten points from a possible twelve in the process as well.
Given Orenburg’s solid form on the road, FC Tambov are the underdogs to come out on top in this one.
However, the guests were forced to settle for no more than a point in one of their last two outings. Taking into account that two out of their previous three h2h meetings have also finished as a tie, the safest punt would be opting for a double chance.
Furthermore, Orenburg have been guilty of possessing a leaky defense, especially on the road. They have conceded a goal or more in each of their outings this season.
Considering that all of their previous meetings with each other have also witnessed both teams find the back of the net together, count on FC Tambov to get their names on the scoresheet along with the visitors this weekend.
