In one of the matches of the 21st round of the championship of Kazakhstan, Zhetysu will host Akzhayyk. Will someone be able to return to the winning path?
In the round before last, Zhetysu scored one point, playing 0-0 with Kyzyl-Zhar. This point replenishment was the first after four rounds, in which Zhetysu lost with a total score of 1-8. After a draw with Kyzyl-Zhar, it did not work out to extend the winless streak, and Shakhter Karaganda prevented this, having achieved a victory on its own field with a score of 3-1. On the eve of the 21st round, Zhetysu has 11 points and closes the standings.
Recently, Akzhayyk, which was located near the European Cup zone two rounds ago and was one of the main contenders for a place in the top four, but suffered two consecutive defeats and fell behind by four points, is not getting along well with positive results. First, Akzhayik lost on the road to Aktobe (1-2), and then it turned out to be weaker than Astana on its own field - 0: 1. At the moment, Akzhayik has 28 points and is sixth.
Statistics and figures:
- Zhetysu has not won for six matches;
- "Akzhayyk" lost in the previous two rounds;
- Zhetysu won against Akzhayyk in one of the last six matches.
Akzhayik has suffered two defeats in a row, but in the upcoming meeting it has a great chance to return to the winning path, since it is an outsider in the rivals, who has already forgotten what victories are. I think that the guests will be able to pick up three points, and without any special difficulties.
