Our prediction for this Russia Premier League match:
Arsenal Tula quickly bounced back from a 2-0 loss to Krasnodar, with the team beating Dynamo Moscow 2-0 at home on Matchday 4. The Pushkari recorded their first win of the season at the weekend, which undisputedly gave them a confidence boost. Arsenal Tula aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, and they are surely capable of beating Khimki, who have collected only one point in total from possible 12.
The visitors head into the match following back-to-back defeats to the likes of Tambov and Akhmat Grozny, and they are unlikely to grab something from the Stadion Arsenal clash. Goalkeeper Mikhail Levashov is rated doubtful for the hosts, while Bryan Idowu and Kirill Bozhenov are suspended for the visitors. Since Khimki defender Evgenij Gapon is out of contention through injury, home win should definitely be considered in this one.
