Torpedo Moscow Prediction – Can Torpedo Moscow extend lead at top?

We’re just past the halfway stage of the Russian FNL season and Torpedo Moscow look set to make a long-awaited return to the Russian Premier League as they sit top of the second tier with a 5-point cushion above 2nd placed Khimki ahead of Wednesday night’s action.

Wednesday night’s hosts have shown impressive form so far this season as they’ve won 16 of their 22 matches to date in this campaign, and they bring a 4-match unbeaten run into this clash against Nizhny Novgorod having secured recent wins against Chayka and SKA Khabarovsk as well as picking up points on the road at Baltika and Mordovia Saransk, both in 1-1 draws.

It’s been Torpedo Moscow’s form on home turf at their Futbol’naya Akademiya Spartak im. F. Cherenkova though which has caught the eye as the hosts possess an excellent home record of 11-1-1 25/10 which includes winning 10 of their last 11 matches in their own backyard.

In addition, Torpedo Moscow have scored 2 goals or more in 11 of their 13 home matches to date with the likes of forwards Sergeev (13 goals) and Lebedenko (6 goals) cashing in so far this term.

Nizhny Novgorod Prediction – Can Novgorod get anything in Moscow?

Despite having lost just 1 of their last 5 matches overall in the Russian second tier heading into this clash, it looks like being a tall order for Nizhny Novgorod to get anything out of this excellent Torpedo Moscow outfit, especially away from home.

The visitors sit mid-table in the FNL due to their consistent inconsistencies which continues to let them down, and recent results have underlined this trend as they’ve registered wins against Khimki and Shinnik but have also suffered defeats to Yenisey, Rotor Volgograd and Neftekhimik.

Nizhny Novgorod’s results away from home have also lacked consistency as their overall away record of 3-4-3 11/10 indicates, although they’ve lost just 1 of their last 6 matches on their travels heading over to Moscow.

In addition, the visitors have kept 4 clean sheets to date on their travels but none of these have been against top half opposition in the FNL, and they’ll be up against a Torpedo Moscow who have scored 2+ goals on a regular basis at home.


Key-Facts – Torpedo Moscow vs Nizhny Novgorod

  • Torpedo Moscow have won 10 of their last 11 matches at home in the FNL
  • Torpedo Moscow have scored 2+goals in 11 of their 13 home matches to date
  • None of Nizhny Novgorod’s 4 clean sheets on the road have been against top half opposition


Betting Tips Verdict

Torpedo Moscow look a lock for a home win here but use the handicap as there’s an outside chance of a possible draw.
