Tosno vs SKA Khabarovsk
Russian Premier League
Date: Friday, 18th August 2017
Kick off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Stadion Petrovskiy.
Last year’s FNL rivals Tosno and SKA Khabarovsk are set to take on each other in the elite class of the Russian football this Friday at Stadion Petrovskiy.
The hosts will come into the game in high spirits after a shocking 0-2 victory over Lokomotiv Moscow last Sunday.
The Ukrainian manager Dmytro Parfenov was thrilled to see his team getting massive points from the capital last weekend and he will want to see his men build on that display to get the second win on the trot in the seventh round fixture with SKA.
It was the second consecutive win on the road for the league’s newcomers who have thus successfully bounced back after a poor kick off with four starting defeats in their first ever appearance in the top tier.
SKA share a similar destiny as they lost each of their opening four outings of the new campaign before getting four points from last two rounds and matched with Anzhi and Rubin Kazan’ in front of their fans.
However, the visitors are yet to score their first goal on the road in the new season which is why we have to see Tosno as strong favourites to come on top on Friday.
