Our prediction for this Other match:
All eyes will be on Stadion Pakhatkor when Khatlon and Istiqlol face each other in the Tajikistan Vysshaya Liga derby. Istiqlol made a flying start to the season, with the team rolling over Dushanbe-83 7-0, while recording a routine 2-0 win over CSKA Pomir. The title holders aim to retain top position in the standings, and we are positive that they will stick to their attacking style of play against Khatlon.
A man to watch in the away team will be Sheriddin Boboev, who has been scoring goals for fun at the start of the season. Khatlon aim to keep their 100% record in the new season intact as well, but Istiqlol are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the hosts than their previous rivals. Considering that the match will be played behind closed doors due to fierce of coronavirus spread, away win should be considered.
