Our prediction for this Russia Premier League match:
Despite being regarded as big underdogs in Tuesday’s clash, Krylya Sovetov did remarkably well to hold Lokomotiv Moscow to a draw at RZD Arena. Krylya Sovetov put an end to their three-game losing run, but their Premier League status remains in great danger. The hosts are eager to return to winning ways, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Rostov on Matchday 26.
The bad news for the hosts is that talented midfielder Safa Hadi is sidelined through suspension. Rostov, on the other hand, continue life without their quarantined players. Even though Proshlyakov and Kozlov return from suspension, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the relegation-threatened hosts. In their last meeting at Samara Arena Krylya Sovetov defeated Rostov 1-0, and the history is likely to repeat itself. It has to be noted, though, that Andrey Talalaev’s troops are eyeing their first home win since September 28, 2019.
