Khimki Prediction – Can Khimki close gap at top?

2nd placed Khimki play host to 3rd placed Rotor Volgograd in a top of the table clash in the Russian FNL with a precious 3 points up for grabs, but the hosts appear to be in the better shape ahead of this tussle as they’ve captured three home wins on the trot.

Recent results have seen Khimki suffer defeats away from home at Nizhny Novgorod and Yenisey but these have book-ended three wins on the trot against Armavir, Avangard Kursk and Tekstilshchik respectively.

Khimki have produced a reasonable looking away record of 5-4-3 18/8 on the road so far this season but it’s been on home turf at their Stadion Rodina where the hosts have really impressed – winning 9 of their 10 home matches in the FNL to date.

A home record of 9-0-1 22/4 looks a commanding one and a record which also includes no fewer than 7 clean sheets as well, as Khimki’s league position has been built around a rock-solid defensive unit.

Volgograd Prediction – Can Volgograd overhaul Khimki?

3rd placed Rotor Volgograd are just 1 point behind their Wednesday evening’s hosts as the visitors look to extend their unbeaten record in the Russian second tier to 9 matches and in turn, replace Khimki in 2nd place behind league leaders, Torpedo Moscow.

Volgograd’s recent 8-match run without defeat includes 6 wins and 2 draws with their victories being achieved against Khabarovsk, Mordovia Saransk, Nizhny Novgorod, Luch Vladivostok, Tekstilshchik and Yenisey, although results away from home haven’t all gone their way.

An away record of 8-1-3 15/6 includes defeats at Chertanovo, Chayka and Baltika but Volgograd do bring a 3-match unbeaten run on their travels into this clash at the Stadion Rodina.

Rotor Volgograd are expected to face one of their biggest tests yet though on the road in this clash as they’ve failed to beat Khimki in each of their last three visits, and will have to be on the ball from the first whistle if they’re to get anything from this encounter.


Key-Facts – Khimki vs Volgograd

  • Khimki have won 9 of their 10 home matches in the FNL this season
  • Khimki have also kept a total of 7 clean sheets at home to date
  • Volgograd are unbeaten in their last 8 matches overall in the FNL


Betting Tips Verdict

Khimki with home advantage and their solid defensive record may just edge this one but backing the hosts with the handicap looks the best play here.
