The match in Grozny will close the program of the 2nd round of the Russian Football Championship. The players of "Akhmat" and "Sochi"will come face to face in a face-to-face meeting. On whose side will the victory be in the upcoming confrontation?
"Akhmat" spent very mediocre last season At the disposal of the team of Andrey Talalaev has a very high-quality and promising squad, as for the RPL. But last season, the team took only the 11th place. In the new championship, Grozny will certainly try to set more ambitious goals for themselves. In the first round, for example, they began to implement the tasks for the season and in Samara they were able to win over the local "Wings of the Soviets".
The players of "Sochi" gave a great last season, which allowed the team to qualify for the Conference League qualification. The first opponent of the season for Fedotov's team was "Keshlya" from Azerbaijan. Already in the first match, the Sochi team was able to secure a comfortable three-goal advantage, which almost guaranteed passage to the next round. At the same time, the Sochi team failed in the opening match of the RPL. In the away meeting with Nizhny Novgorod, the coach of the "bars" was forced to use rotation, which led to a 0:1 defeat.
Statistics and figures:
- The opponents have approximately equal chances of winning;
- "Akhmat" has a 3-match series without defeats;
- "Sochi" has 4 wins in 5 matches;
- The last face-to-face meeting between the rivals ended with a score of 2:1 in favor of the Sochi residents.
The Sochi players underestimated the opponent in the first round. I think that Barca will come to Grozny with a different attitude and will be able to win over their opponent. The bookmakers estimate the bet in favor of the guests with a solid quote.
