FC Ural vs Akhmat Grozny
Russia – Premier league
Date: Sunday, 21 July 2019
Kick-off at 12:00 UK / 13:00 CET
Venue: Central Stadium (Yekaterinburg).
The hosts had an exciting opening encounter against Ufa at home last week and saw the final scores read 3-2 in their favor.
Bicfalvi broke the deadlock early on and completed a brace four minutes after the restart. The goal from Bavin though proved to be the decisive one as their opponents struck twice through Kozlov and Fomin.
The home team certainly saw more of the ball in that game, but made just as many attempts at goal, and not more, as their counterparts.
The visitors will also be coming into the tie this weekend on the back of a similar success. The squad clinched a narrow 1-0 win in their clash with Krasnodar at home and will be hoping to extend their winning charm in their first away game of the season as well.
Berisha missed a spot-kick in the opening half in their previous tie but redeemed himself by scoring the decisive goal close to the half-hour mark.
Both the teams will be hoping to build a steady run of form early on in the season, and for that, a win on Sunday is a must.

FC Ural vs Akhmat Grozny Prediction
The home team are the favorites to bag the win in this one when they welcome the visitors to the Central Stadium.
The hosts have already impressed on home soil once. Having already scored three goals in that game, we can expect them to get their name on the scoresheet without fail.
The visitors were wasteful in their last fixture and should have been up by at least two goals at the end of the ninety minutes.
The clash is likely to see both the sides find the back of the net, however, given the home advantage, the win is likely to swing in favor of the hosts.
