Yenisey Krasnoyarsk vs Ural
Russia – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 22 September 2018
Kick-Off at 09:30 UK
Venue: Stadion Geolog (Tyumen’).
Yenisey Krasnoyarsk and Ural are going to open the Saturday’s action of the Russian Premier League 8th round.
After winning the promotion from the second tier last season, the hosts are looking forward to avoiding the relegation. They’ve been struggling since the start of the campaign and they are sitting on the 13th spot. Dmitry Alenichev’s side has severe troubles in finding the back of the oppositions’ net as they’ve managed to score just twice in seven occasions so far. Yenisey Krasnoyarsk have celebrated just one victory and they’ll need to improve their game in order to stay up at the end of the season. The only encouraging fact for the hosts is that they’ve lost just once at home pitch, although they need to host their rivals in Tyumen’.
Ural are in the same position as their rivals and they have the same number of points as Yenisey. Gregor Balazic and the lads need to tighten up their defence urgently as they’ve conceded the highest number of goals in the competition. The visitors played away from home twice and in both matches they suffered heavy defeats. This is going to be the battle for the survival and potential victory could bring valuable three points for one of the sides.
Yenisey Krasnoyarsk v Ural: Head-to-head
It is very interesting that the home fans enjoyed just one home victory in their ten head to head clashes. Ural were better at their pitch back in 2006. We’ve seen four straight away victories including their latest friendly clash and their matches were mostly low scoring ones.
Yenisey Krasnoyarsk v Ural: Prediction
This is going to be a very tight clash and both sides will be looking for the valuable points in their survival battle. Although the tradition is not in the favour of the hosts, we believe Yenisey Krasnoyarsk are going to celebrate a victory which can drag them out of the danger zone for a while.
Home side has been very inefficient so far, while Ural managed to find the back of the net just once when playing away from home. In this one we shouldn’t expect to see many goals and the match is going to stay under 2.5 margin.
