Nizhny Novgorod Preview – Can Novgorod open their account?

A 3rd place finish at the end of last season in the FNL eventually resulted in Nizhny Novgorod to be promoted up to the Premier League for this new Russian top flight season but although they’re on home turf, they’ll be up against a Sochi outfit who finished in 5th spot last term.

Nizhny Novgorod finished last season in strong fashion, losing just two of their final 13 matches of the campaign which earned them promotion, but in recent times, the hosts have struggled when trying their hand against the Premier League teams in pre-season matches.

Three defeats on the trot consist of home and away losses to Rubin Kazan along with a 2-1 loss away at CSKA Moscow, so this could be a tough season-opener for Nizhny here on Monday night.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Sochi Preview – Can Sochi build on Europa success?

Sochi also produced a strong finish to last season’s campaign in the Premier League, winning four of their final five games of the term which included victories over CSKA Moscow, Ufa, Krasnodar and Rotor Volgograd.

Although the visitors then slipped to three defeats on the trot in recent pre-season friendlies, Sochi bounced back to record back-to-back wins over Khimki and Rubin Kazan, while also recording a comprehensive 3-0 home win over Azerbaijan side, Qeshla, in the 1st leg of their Europa Conference League qualifier.

With just three defeats out of their last 12 away games, Sochi look to be in good shape to get a result here on Monday night.
