Yenisey vs Anzhi Makhachkala
Russia – Premier League
Date: Friday, 3rd May 2019
Kick-off at 12.00 UK/ 13.00 CET
Venue: Tsentralnyi Stadion (Krasnoyarsk).
Yenisey faces a mountain in the next several match-days if they are to take part in the next edition of the Premier League. Right now, they are dead-last in the table, and needs to overcome a deficit of nine points from the remaining four games, to at least reach the relegation-playoffs. Quite an improbable task, but with nothing more to lose, we can expect the team to give it all they can.
It really does help that they are going against a team that is similarly fighting the same fate. Anzhi is second to last in the table, just above Yenisey. Their task is a tad easier comparatively, considering they need to overcome just five points in the next four match-days.
Yenisey vs Anzhi Makhachkala Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last five matches in a row saw the home team taking the win.
- Seven of the last eight games saw the hosts of the day winning.
- Six of the last nine matches had both teams on the scorecard.
- Yenisey won the last two fixtures at this venue.
Yenisey vs Anzhi Makhachkala Prediction
With four games remaining, Yenisey is fast running out of options. They need to deliver in the next four games in a row without fail, starting with this one. It certainly helps that they have the home advantage. Moreover, the team really does have nothing more to lose.
Going on, h2h ties have always seen the home team having the upper hand. The last five h2h ties in a row and seven of the last eight had the hosts taking the three points. Also, Yenisey won the last two encounters at this venue, and the last time they lost against this opponent at home, was back in 2006.
Importantly, Yenisey is unbeaten at home in their last 12 matches, whereas, Anzhi lost six of their last seven on the road. Expect a home win this weekend. But expect a very tough fight from Anzhi too. They are fighting relegation as well, and their task is simpler. Also, they are against a team that has conceded the most goals in the competition along with them.
Backing the BTTS option gives great value for your money.
