Sochi vs Rostov Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips

Sochi are the form team in Russia as they host Rostov at Olympiastadion Sochi. Sochi are playing with plenty of confidence under new manager Vladimir Fedotov and can make it four straight wins on Friday.

Sochi Form

Sochi are in great form after turning a corner since manager Vladimir Fedotov took over in January. Sochi have won their last three Russian Premier League matches by 2+ goals, all at home.

Sochi beat Ural 2-0 with Andrey Mostovoy and Kirill Zaika on target before a thumping 5-1 win against Orenburg. Aleksandr Kokorin bagged a brace with Mostovoy and Christian Noboa completing the rout.

Fedotov’s side made it three in a row with a 2-0 victory against Krasnodar. Korkorin hit the woodwork early but Noboa and Mostovoy continued their goal scoring form. 

Sochi News

Centre back Adil Rami is reportedly leaving the club and attacking midfielder Erik Vardanyan is injured. Versatile midfielder Ibrahim Tsallagov is suspended

Sochi’s attack is on fire with Andrey Mostovoy, Aleksandr Kokorin and Anton Zabolotny all contributing to goals in recent matches. Mostovoy has scored in three straight games and Kokorin has three goals in four games since moving to Sochi.

Rostov Form

FC Rostov have had an inconsistent start to 2020. A 1-1 draw at Akhmat Grozny was followed by a 3-2 home win against CSKA Moscow. 

Sergey Pesjakov’s penalty was saved before CSKA took the lead, they then saw two players sent off in the 20th and 51st minutes. Goals to Roman Eremenko, Ivelin Popov and Pavel Mamaev completed the turnaround against nine men. 

Valeri Karpin’s side suffered a 3-1 home defeat to Lokomotiv Moscow in their last match. Rostov were 3-0 down at half-time, got back into the match through Ivelin Popov but couldn’t bridge the gap.

Rostov News

Several of Rostov’s players tested positive for COVID-19 with the entire squad quarantined for 14 days. If Rostov are forced to play against Sochi they will most likely field their U18 squad.
