Sochi Preview – Can Sochi build on recent point?

A creditable 2-2 draw away from home at Spartak Moscow in the opening game of the Russian Premier League season saw Sochi pick up an important point on the road and they’ll now head into this upcoming clash against Khimki at their Olimpiyskiy Stadion Fisht in reasonably confident mood that they can add to their points tally here.

Sochi had ended last season’s Premier League campaign with just one win from their final seven matches which was courtesy of an impressive 1-0 home win over Spartak Moscow but an earlier defeat to Zenit and three draws meant that they had to make do with their final league position of 12th place.

It’s worth mentioning that all three of these aforementioned defeats were away from home, while at home Sochi finished with an overall home record of 6-3-6 28/16 but had made vast improvements in the second half of the campaign as they’d won five of their final six matches on home turf which included a 10-1 trouncing of Rostov.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Khimki Preview – Can Khimki get anything from Sochi?

The Russian Premier League new-boys, Khimki, were dealt a tough lesson in the domestic top flight on the opening day of the season as they went down 2-0 at home to CSKA Moscow and they now face a tricky outing to face Sochi against whom they’ve lost in three of their previous four encounters.

Khimki achieved automatic promotion from the FNL at the end of last season after they narrowly edged out 3rd placed Chertanovo by virtue of a superior goal difference, and they’ll no doubt be keen to produce a better account of themselves this time around in the Russian top flight.

The visitors were last in the domestic top flight some 11 years ago but that campaign ended in disaster as they were relegated following a miserable 15-match losing streak to end their season in abject fashion, and they’ll be keen to avoid another defeat on Friday.
