Ural vs Rostov
Russian Premier League
Date: Monday, 17 September 2018
Kick-Off at 15:30 UK / 16:30 CET
Venue: Ekaterinburg Arena (Ekaterinburg).
Rostov sit sky-high third in the Premier League ladder after six rounds of the competitions. They’ve been enjoying a thrilling form at the start of the season, winning four and losing just one of six games so far. Can Selmashi maintain such fine record and pick up another victory on Monday afternoon when they are to close the Matchday No 7 against Ural away at Ekaterinburg Arena?
The hosts finished the previous term just above the relegation play-offs line. They’ll clearly struggle down in the relegation scrap this time around as well according to the poor beginning of the new season. Dmytro Parfenov’s men took only four points from six matches so far. They’ll come into this off the back of a demolishing 4-0 defeat to CSKA Moscow on the road in the previous round.
Ural vs Rostov: Head-to-head
- Ural only managed to beat Rostov once in 13 games over the course of history.
- Selmashi picked up eight wins along the way.
- None of last five H2H games saw three or more goals scored.
- Ural scored just two goals in past five H2H encounters.
Ural vs Rostov: Prediction
The value is strong in Rostov’s win at 2.60 odds here. The visitors were very tough to break down so far in the season, conceding just two goals in six outings. Two men responsible for the finishing touch at the opposite end are Bjorn Sigurdarson and Alexei Ionov who have three goals to their names apiece.
Ural boast league’s worst defensive record with 13 goals conceded in six matches so far, meaning tis attacking pair should have plenty of room to create in the final third on the occasion. You can thus also try with Rostov to bag two or more goals here at 3.25. We will rather take the visitors to keep a clean sheet at 2.50.
