Our prediction for this Russia Premier League match:
After suffering a 1-0 loss at Tambov, Khimki will be aiming to record their first win of the season when they take on Akhmat Grozny at their Arena Khimki. The Krasno-chyornye are likely to leave their hearts on the field, but given their anything but great attacking potential, we are unlikely to see goals galore in Saturday’s football match. Defender Evgenij Gapon is sidelined with injury for the hosts, while Aleksandr Filin is rated doubtful.
Akhmat Grozny, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a 2-0 loss to Spartak Moscow, with the team outplaying Volgograd at home ground. The Chechens aim to move a little closer to the Europa League berth, but, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from the Arena Khimki clash. A close encounter is on the cards, and we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw. Both Wilker Angel and Rizvan Utsiev are sidelined with injury for the visitors.
