Tambov Preview – Can Tambov teach new-boys lesson?

Tuesday’s hosts, Tambov, will be hoping for a less stressful season this term in the Russian Premier League after they finished third from bottom in the previous campaign and narrowly avoided relegation down to the FNL by virtue of a superior goal difference over second from bottom finishers, Krylya Sovetov.

However, the early signs in the first couple of matches of this new domestic top flight season aren’t too promising for Tambov who have been dealt back-to-back defeats by Rostov 1-0 at home and a 2-1 loss away at CSKA Moscow so far.

The upcoming visit of newcomers, Khimki, though provides Tambov with a good opportunity to stem the losses and get off the mark with a win here, and having won their last two meetings on the trot at home to Khimki, Tambov will be in reasonably confident mood in grabbing their first win of the season here.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Khimki Preview – Can Rubin Kazan get off the mark?

Khimki finished runners-up to FNL title-winners, Rotor Volgograd, at the end of last season’s second tier campaign but they too have got off to a slow start in this new Russian Premier League season, picking up just one point from their opening two matches.

An opening day 2-0 loss at home against CSKA Moscow was a baptism of fire for Khimki but they did manage to pick up a point in their following match where they held Sochi to a 1-1 draw away from home.

Khimki hit the road again for this upcoming clash against Tambov and if the visitors are to consolidate their Russian top flight status, these are the matches where they need to take something from as results away from home will be crucial to their survival. However, Khimki’s last campaign some 11 years ago resulted in relegation as they lost 15 of their final 16 matches of that season.
