Ufa vs Khimki
Russia – Premier League
Date: Monday, 23 November 2020
Kick-off at UK/ CET
Venue: Neftyanik Stadium (Ufa).
Having won only one of their 14 clashes in the campaign, FC Ufa is at the ultimate bottom of the league table as it stands this season.
The 1-1 draw on the road against Sochi last time out provides hope for the host in the game to make a comeback in the Russian Premier League.
Khimki is not far away from the home team in the table, with just a five-point difference from the latter in the campaign this term.
Two of their recent three fixtures have ended in straight wins, including a 2-0 win at home against Kazan in the previous game, which might improve the morale of the traveling side squad.

Ufa vs Khimki Prediction
Ufa is just one goal short in averaging 2.0 goals conceded in their 14 league appearances so far this season while scoring just 8 goals in the process.
In the meantime, Khimki has also conceded 25 goals in the campaign this term until now but has averaged 1.1 goals in their scoring department. With both teams having problems at the back, the match is likely to see a couple of goals.
At 1.44 odds, the tip for over 1.5 goals fits perfectly for the punters to yield decent returns in safe conditions. Besides, the last time they met here; the match produced 5 goals in ninety minutes.
The double chance favoring Khimki will probably be the ideal choice in the fixture. The host enjoys the ground advantage, but their overall form has taken a hit in the campaign.
Meanwhile, the visitor is coming on the back of a win and will try to build on that in the upcoming clash.
