As part of one of the matches of the 1st round of the Russian Football Championship, the players of the Samara "Wings of the Soviets" and the Grozny "Akhmat"will come face to face. On whose side will the victory be in the upcoming confrontation?
"Wings of the Soviets"
The team of the hosts performed very well in the last season of the FNL. The Wings were able to score 101 points to their asset, breaking away from the nearest pursuer in the face of Orenburg by 7 points at once. It is worth noting that the attack of the home team was able to score 100 goals for the season, and also reached the final of the Russian Cup, where it lost to Lokomotiv Moscow. Krylia are approaching the RPL matches after two defeats in friendly matches against Ural. Up to this point, the Samaritans had beaten Radnichki twice.
The Grozny team performed at its own level last season. According to the results of 30 matches played, the visiting team was able to score 40 points, lagging behind the European Cup zone by 13 points at once. It is worth noting that "Akhmat" managed to hold 4 friendly meetings, in which he could not win once. After failures in the games with Slovan and Bohemians, Akhmat drew with the teams Haladash and Al-Fat.
Statistics and figures:
- The opponents have approximately equal chances of winning;
- "Krylia" won twice in 5 previous meetings;
- "Akhmat" has a 5-match series without victories;
- The last face-to-face meeting of the rivals was in the Russian Cup, and ended with the victory of the Samaritans (1: 0 SP);
- "Akhmat" lost in the main time only once to the Samara team.
Despite the fact that "Akhmat" plays successfully against its Samara opponent, it is unlikely that Grozny will be able to defeat "Krylia" away. Apparently, the Samaritans will give a fight to an opponent from Grozny and will keep a zero head start.
