Khimki Preview – Can Khimki do better this time around?

It’s been 11 years since Khimki last played in the Russian Premier League and the newly-promoted side from the FNL will be hoping they they can make a better fist of things this time around in this season’s campaign.

Back in 2009, Khimki found themselves rock-bottom of the Russian top flight with just 10 points to their name and an extremely poor run of results which saw the hosts lose their final 15 matches of that campaign on the trot which condemned them to the second tier.

Despite starting off this new season at home, the fixture computer hasn’t been kind to Khimki as they’re up against a CSKA Moscow outfit whom they’ve lost to on the past seven occasions on the trot, so they’ll do well to avoid an eighth defeat here this Saturday.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

CSKA Moscow Preview – Can CSKA continue dominance over Khimki?

Despite last season being a disappointing campaign by CSKA Moscow’s lofty standards, the visitors still finished in 4th place and secured a Europa League spot for next season and they’ll be confident that they can start this new Premier League campaign off with a bang as they prepare for another visit of their ‘whipping boys’, Khimki.

CSKA Moscow suffered a dismal period in last season’s campaign from early December through to the end of June (spanning a run of seven matches without a win), but the visitors bounced back in the season run-in by losing just one further match from their final seven matches which included four wins.

Results away from home continued to be encouraging though as CSKA lost just twice in their final 12 matches on their travels which consisted of six victories amidst an overall away record that finished at 7-4-4 26/15.
