Nizhny Novgorod Prediction – Can Nizhny Novgorod grab a fourth win on trot?

Nizhny Novgorod finished in 4th spot in the Russian second tier and narrowly edged out the chasing pack of Chertanovo and Shinnik thanks to a last day of the season 3-1 home win over Mordovia Saransk which sealed their place in these relegation/promotion play-off finals.

Nizhny Novgorod finished up with a pretty solid looking home record of 11-4-4 22/12 which included winning their last 3 home matches on the trot with victories against Sibir, Krasnodar B and the aforementioned Mordovia Saransk.

The hosts lost just 2 of their last 10 matches on home turf of the season which also consisted of keeping 9 clean sheets as well which set them up for success. Perhaps a little worryingly though, was the fact that Nizhny Novgorod also failed to score in 6 of their 19 home matches during this campaign, and having finished with an ordinary looking away record, the pressure is on the hosts to get a result here this evening in this 1st leg.

Nizhny Novgorod’s away record ended up on 7-4-8 19/19 for the season.

Krylya Sovetov Prediction – Can Krylya Sovetov extend their unbeaten run against Nizhny?

Visitors, Krylya Sovetov, can count themselves extremely lucky not to have ended up in the automatic relegation places at the end of the Russian Premier League regular season as they registered just 1 win from their last 11 matches overall in the top flight as their form nose-dived in dramatic fashion.

That win came in the shape of a 1-0 home win over 11th placed Rubin Kazan, but no fewer than 9 defeats from these last 11 matches saw the visitors sweating on the last couple of weeks of the season.

It was only due to the woeful form of the bottom two clubs, Anzhi and Yenisey that Krylya Sovetov were able to escape the automatic drop down to the FNL, while their away record ended up on a very poor looking 3-2-10 14/31.

In addition, Krylya Sovetov lost their last 6 away matches on the trot which doesn’t set them up very well for their trip to face Nizhny Novgorod here this evening.

However, as mentioned earlier, the visitors are unbeaten in their previous two encounters against Nizhny Novgorod as they’ve registered a 1-0 win and a 0-0 draw.


Key-Facts – Nizhny Novgorod v Krylya Sovetov

  • Nizhny Novgorod won their last 3 home matches on the trot in the FNL
  • Nizhny Novgorod have failed to beat Krylya Sovetov in their 2 encounters to date
  • Krylya Sovetov are unbeaten in their previous 2 meetings against Nizhny Novgorod


Betting Tips Verdict

Despite holding home advantage, Nizhny Novgorod need to prove they can beat Krylya Sovetov. Until that happens, I’ll side with the visitors here with the draw no bet option.
