Spartak Moscow Preview – Can Spartak Moscow grab win?

Friday’s hosts, Spartak Moscow, were held to a somewhat disappointing 2-2 draw at home with Sochi in the weekend’s opening fixture of the new Russian Premier League season, but the hosts hold home advantage once more this Friday at their Otkrytiye Arena where they’ll be seeking to take all three points against Akhmat Grozny.

Although the recent draw was a disappointment, it nevertheless extended Spartak Moscow’s unbeaten run in the Russian top flight to three matches which included back-to-back wins at the end of last season against Friday’s opponents, Akhmat Grozny 3-0 and a 2-1 win on the road at Rubin Kazan.

Spartak Moscow finished last season in 7th place and six points adrift of 5th placed Rostov so the hosts will be keen to emulate last season’s finish by getting off to a good start this term; just two wins from their last 13 matches at home needs urgent attention, but at least they’ve beaten Akhmat Grozny in the last three encounters on the trot.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Akhmat Grozny Preview – Can Akhmat Grozny also improve?

The visitors finished last season’s Premier League campaign in a lowly 13th place and only just avoided relegation thanks to a superior goal difference than second from bottom Krylya Sovetov who joined bottom outfit Orenburg through the trap-door to the FNL at the end of last season.

Akhmat Grozny will therefore be desperate to avoid a repeat of last season’s nervous end to the campaign as they managed just three wins from their final 13 matches of the season, but the wins they did grab over Krylya Sovetov, Arsenal Tula and Tambov (all of which were away from home), helped save Akhmat Grozny’s bacon.

Grozny actually performed better on the road than at home last term as five the total of seven league wins were picked up on their travels, but they’ve failed to score in each of their last three away matches on the trot and possess a poor recent record against Spartak Moscow, so this could be a tough evening.
