Akhmat Grozny vs Orenburg Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


A home win is the tip when Akhmat Grozny host Orenburg in a Russian Premier League clash at the Akhmat Arena. Akhmat are returning home having been away in their last two matches. They are unbeaten in their last five fixtures at home and at odds of 2.00, should secure the victory over the visitors, who are on a three-match losing streak.

FC Akhmat Grozny Form & Team News


Akhmat are coming off a 1-0 defeat at Rubin Kazan last time out in the Russian Premier League. They conceded midway through the second half and failed to find a way back into the contest despite several attempts on goal.

Rashid Rakhimov's men have been on the road in their last two matches and are returning to the Akhmat Arena, where they have won their last three fixtures. Their stellar home form has them at good value of 2.00 for a win on Monday. 

Ablay Mbengue often leads the line for Grozny and has found the net three times in his last six matches. Bernard Berisha is also set to start in midfield having scored the winner in the opening fixture against Krasnodar.

FC Orenburg Form & Team News 


Orenburg suffered a 2-0 defeat at home against Zenit St Petersburg in their previous Russian Premier League outing. They were second best throughout the contest, struggling to cope with the attacking firepower of the visitors.

Vladimir Fedotov’s men have made a poor start to the season having lost their opening three matches. They are expected to struggle at the Akhmat Arena and are priced at 3.80 for a victory on Monday while a draw is set at odds of 3.30

Striker Djordje Despotovic has found the net just once in his last eight Russian Premier League fixtures but is still expected to start in attack. He is usually supported by Artyom Kulishev and Andrea Chukanov who have combined for just one goal in 10 topflight matches.

Akhmat Grozny vs Orenburg Match Up


Ablay Mbengue usually plays as a target man for Akhmat with his aerial presence often a threat to defenders. He serves as the perfect foil for Bernard Berisha and Oleg Ivanov, who was on target in the last meeting against Orenburg. 

Orenburg have been poor in attack lately with Djordje Despotovic struggling for goals. With Artyom Kulishev and Andrea Chukanov also looking off colour lately, the visitors are not expected to get any joy at the Akhmat Arena.
