Monday’s Russian Premier League action comes from Sochi, as 4th place Sochi prepare to take on 9th place Spartak Moscow. It’s an opportunity for both teams to earn a crucial three points as both of these teams are aiming to climb higher up the table. The league table is tight and a win for Spartak would see the gap between Sochi and themselves reduced to just two points.
This is a tight match to call as both teams generally have struggled for consistency this season. Sochi despite losing their last two games at home have the third best home form in the league, having taken 15 points out of a possible 24 available to them so far this season. Spartak have hit a bit of form, winning three of their last five matches but away from home they have struggled and have one of the worst away records in the league and have only claimed eight points from eight away games so far. Sochi have won the last two home contests against Spartak when played at their home ground and will be confident of making it a third. It’s hard to take any confidence out of Spartak’s away form and for this reason we will side with Sochi to emerge from a tight contest with a win.
Over 2.5 goals
Perhaps a clear indicator as to how these teams have struggled is both teams inabilities to keep clean sheets. Sochi have seen over 2.5 goals exceeded in eight of their last nine contests, whilst Spartak has seen over 2.5 goals surpassed in three of their last five games. When these sides meet the goals often flow as three of the last five clashes between the sides has resulted in over 2.5 goals being exceeded. It should be a close game but one where we will back the over 2.5 goals to happen.
Both teams to score
One of the bankers of the match has to be on both teams to score. Both teams have scored in Sochi’s last eight matches, whilst Spartak have seen both teams find the back of the net in ten of their last eleven contests. With both teams not being able to keep clean sheets this has to be a bet that is taken on.
