FC Ufa vs FC Orenburg
Russia – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 31 August 2019
Kick-off at 09:30 UK / 10:30 CET
Venue: Neftyanik Stadium (Ufa).
FC Ufa recorded back to back victories for the first time in the new campaign by taking out the reigning champions Zenit by a 1-0 scoreline at home. Prior to the latter clash, the squad also brought FK Rostov’s unbeaten run to an abrupt halt by coming out on top with a 2-0 scorecard.
FC Orenburg, on the other hand, have hit rock bottom in the table and are struggling to get back on their feet. The visitors are one of the only two teams in the ladder that are yet to taste success and have admitted defeat in five of their last seven games.
Given that they will also be making the trip to Neftyanik Stadium on the back of a 2-1 loss against Arsenal Tula on the road, it looks like FC Orenburg will have to wait even further to get themselves a win.

Ufa vs Orenburg Prediction
Home advantage has finally started to work its charm for Ufa as the hosts are sporting an impressive two-match winning streak, after handing out defeats to both Rostov and Zenit in their previous fixtures. All of the wins that the home team have secured so far have come from their matches on home soil, where they are unbeaten in their last three games.
Their counterparts for the weekend, have been at the losing end in all of their outings. Additionally, Orenburg have picked up a win just once in their previous three visits to this venue. With a run of form this bad, the visitors are in no shape to beat Ufa, especially in their own back yard.
Ufa have kept a clean sheet in their last two games in a row here, and have wrapped things up with less than 2.5 goals on the scorecard as well. Considering that all of their previous meetings between each other at this stadium have also seen very few goals on the charts, except a low scoring clash to take place on Saturday.
