Our prediction for this Other match:
Respublikanskiy Stadion im. M.V. Frunze will host Saturday’s football game between Istiqlol and Kuktosh, the two top-table sides. Despite being seen as hot favourites to win their last league match, Istiqlol dropped two points in a 2-2 draw with Khatlon. The league leaders aim to return to winning ways as soon as possible, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach against Kuktosh.
Given the number of high-profile footballers in the home side, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the reigning champions. Kuktosh, on the other hand, have been producing fine performances at the start of the season, but Istiqlol are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the yellow blues than their previous rivals. In their last meeting in the Tajik top flight Istiqlol crushed Kuktosh 6-1, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered.
