As part of one of the matches of the 12th round of the Russian Championship, the players of Ural and Khimki will come face to face. Which of the rivals will get the victory in this match? Our sports portal evaluates the opponents' chances of success.
Ural is now in the penultimate place in the Russian Championship standings after 11 matches played, in which the team was able to get seven points. It is worth noting the fact that in recent games the team is gradually getting out of the hole in which it buried itself. This was facilitated by the appointment of Viktor Gancharenko as head coach, as well as a strong transfer campaign. Last week, Ural managed to win two victories. First, the team defeated Torpedo (1-0) in the Russian Cup, after which it was able to smash Lokomotiv (4-2) in the RPL match. It is obvious that "bumblebees" are on the rise now.
As for Khimki, they are currently on the 14th line in the standings and have 8 points in their asset in 11 meetings. It is worth noting that now Khimki can be called the worst RPL team. After the dismissal of Sergei Yuran from a club near Moscow, the "red-blacks" can not find themselves in any way. Nikolay Pisarev has already managed to work with the team, who, after a series of failures, was also dismissed from the team. Spartak Gogniev, who replaced him, is also not able to adjust the game yet. In this meeting, Khimki are considered outsiders of the match due to their current playing form.
Statistics and figures:
- Ural is the favorite of the meeting;Uralians have won three times in 5 matches;
- Khimki do not know victories in 10 meetings;
- The last face-to-face meeting of the rivals ended with a score of 1-0 in favor of Khimki.
I think that Ural will be able to win over the opponent in this meeting.
Our bet will be in favor of the bumblebees. The quotation for the success of the Uralians, though modest, seems quite reliable.
