Our prediction for this Other match:
All eyes will be on Stadion Aeroflot when Dushanbe-83 and Istiqlol face each other in the local derby at the start of the new Tajikistan Vysshaya Liga campaign. Over the years Istiqlol have established themselves as the dominant force in the Tajikistan football, and you should bear in mind that they are eyeing their seventh consecutive trophy in the elite division.
The Lions are seen as hot favourites to win Wednesday’s football match, and we predict that they are going to kick off the new season in style. Dushanbe-83, on the other hand, did well to secure promotion to the Tajikistan top flight. The newcomers are eager to claim a major scalp in their opener, but given the number of high-profile players in the away team, we are tempted to put our money on the reigning champions. It has to be noted that the two clubs meet for the first time ever in the Vysshaya Liga.
