The Premier League match at Akhmat-Arena on Saturday will see home side Terek Grozny lock horns with opponents Sochi.
All Terek Grozny v Sochi match predictions, user poll and stats are shown below (inc. the best betting odds).
Terek Grozny will be looking to improve on their last outing here following a 0-3 Premier League defeat in their last game at the hands of CSKA Moscow.
Konstantin Kuchayev (11'), Kristijan Bistrović (88') and Nikola Vlašić (90') scored for CSKA Moscow.
It’s been seldom in recent times that Terek Grozny have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. It will be a concern for them that The Wolves have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 games, leaking 9 goals in the process. That sort of pattern might not be sustained into this next game, of course.
Last time out, Sochi drew 0-0 in the Premier League match with Ural.
Vladimir Fedotov's Sochi have converted a total of 9 times throughout their previous 6 matches. The overall goals that they have conceded during those matches comes to 6.
Coming into this meeting, Sochi are undefeated in their last 3 away league matches.
Head to head
The previous league match between these clubs was Premier League match day 24 on 26/06/2020 which finished with the scoreline of Terek Grozny 1-1 Sochi.
The match was refereed by Sergei Karasev.
Team News: Terek Grozny
Terek Grozny manager Andrei Talalayev will be thankful to have no fitness concerns whatsoever before this game owing to a fully healthy squad available to select from.
We are thinking that The Wolves will possibly opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation this time, beginning the first half with Giorgi Shelia, Miroslav Bogosovac, Aleksandr Putsko, Zoran Nizic, Maksim Nenakhov, Artem Timofeev, Ismael Silva Lima, Bernard Berisha, Oleg Ivanov, Odise Roshi and Vladimir Ilyin.
Team News: Sochi
Sochi manager Vladimir Fedotov has not got a full squad to pick from. Erik Vardanyan (Fitness) and Ivelin Popov (Ruptured knee ligament) won’t be making appearances.
It’s our belief that Belo-sinie will likely begin the game with a 3-4-3 formation with a starting lineup of Soslan Dzhanaev, Miha Mevlja, Ivan Miladinovic, Sergey Terekhov, Timofey Margasov, Christian Noboa, Ibrahim Tsallagov, Kirill Zaika, Nikita Burmistrov, Anton Zabolotny and Joaozinho.
We feel that over the course of the game, Sochi could well find it tough to break down this Terek Grozny lineup who we think will manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
Therefore, we predict a very even match with a 1-0 advantage for Terek Grozny at the end of this game.
