The last match of the 2nd round of the Russian Premier League in Grozny at 7 pm CET will play Akhmat and Sochi. In the starting round, Akhmat celebrated away against Krylya Sovetov with the result 2:1, while Sochi was defeated 0:1 in Nizny Novgorod.

Akhmat was 11th last season, and even now his goal is a calm middle of the standings. They sold two important players, Iljin and Nenakov, this summer, but also brought in striker Konate and midfielder Utkin. Just the two of them played very well and were the scorers in the 1st round against Krylya Sovetov.

That match brought a lot of optimism to the team led by coach Andrej Talalajev, and this against Sochi are especially motivated because they have never beaten him in six games (four defeats and two draws). Club president Magomed Daudov also gave a speech in front of the players, congratulating them on their first victory and wishing the same today against Sochi.

Right back Utsiev is injured and others players are ready for this match, including Artyom Timofeev who joined the team a few days ago coming from Spartak.

- We are playing against a very good team that represents us in Europe, but we have nothing to be afraid, if we play as well as in the first match against Krylya Sovetov - said coach of the home team Talalayev, who uses a 4-2-3-1 tactical formation.

Sochi is a relatively new club on the scene, but very ambitious, it also has the support of Russian president Vladimir Putin, who often rests in the Olympic city on the Black Sea, and this year Sochi is playing in a European competition for the first time.

They already passed two rivals in the Conference League, and on Thursday will play the first match of the 3rd qualifying round against Partizan from Belgrade. That match in three days is the reason why coach Vladimir Fedotov announced rotations in the team today, four or five players will rest, who have been playing in a strong rhythm in recent days.

Fedotov wasn't satisfied with defeat in the 1st round, but against Nizhny Novgorod, the realization failed after the dominance in possession of the ball and the number of shots. But on Thursday away to Azerbaijan's Keshia, Sochi scored 4 goals and confirmed that it is a very offensive team.

This should be a very interesting duel because Akhmat will be very motivated and Sochi is a team that always plays offensively. The guests will use some reserves, but this will not affect their style of play. Final impression is that bookmakers make mistakes when they think there will be no many goals in Grozny. We think the opposite...

WIN Score: 1:2 Profit: +0.61
