Both teams have had their coaches suspended, so they will have difficult games ahead.
The winter holidays at the Russian Championship will begin very soon. The teams must complete the 18th round. Three meetings are scheduled for December 9. We present to your attention an express bet with odds of 5.22 for the matches that will be played today.
Prediction for the match “Spartak” – “Wings of the Soviets”
Analyzing the last matches of the rivals, it is clear that Spartak lost two matches in a row, which undoubtedly affected the team’s morale. The victory in the match against Baltika and the previous draw with Lokomotiv give hope of regaining form, but it must be taken into account that the red and whites are quite unstable.
Krylya Sovetov, on the other hand, has shown more confident results in recent matches, including the away defeat over Sochi and the draw with Lokomotiv at home. This indicates good mood and readiness of the Samara team for a serious fight. The history of the last matches points in favor of Krylia Sovetov, who in the last three matches with Spartak achieved three victories.
Taking into account the current form of the teams and their latest results, it can be assumed that Krylya Sovetov will have chances to score points even on a foreign field. We believe the meeting will be productive. Both teams should score, since they have a good attack. In addition, Abascal will not be on the wing, so it remains unknown how the rojiblanco team will behave. Bets on totals over 2.5 goals are accepted at 1.68.
Forecast for the match “Akhmat” – “Rostov”
“Akhmat”, despite the victory over “Spartak”, had already suffered defeats in other matches, including against “Baltika” with a crushing score of 1:4. Rostov, in turn, lost to CSKA and Spartak, but managed to beat Paris Nizhny Novgorod and maintain a draw in the other two matches.
Studying the previous meetings of the teams, one can note the advantage of “Rostov”: in the last five games, the Rostovites won four victories over “Akhmat”, the Grozny team was able to beat its opponents only once. Taking into account the current form of the teams and their recent results, the match is expected to be tense and contested until the final minutes. “Akhmat” will strive to take advantage of the home field to take revenge for past defeats and leave in a good mood for the winter holidays, but “Rostov” will show perseverance in its desire to maintain its advantage in personal meetings. And we have to react to the 0-2 defeat against CSKA.
Perhaps the next match in Grozny will end in a draw, but taking into account the slight advantage of the hosts and the support of the stands, there is reason to assume that Akhmat will be able to win with a score of 2:1. Especially if they focus on strengthening their defense and offensive efficiency, correcting the mistakes of previous games. In general, Akhmat will be in a very good mood after the victory over Spartak, and Rostov will take a winter break to think. Bets on the victory of Grozny with a handicap (0) are accepted at 1.77.
Prediction for the match “Zenit” – “Paris NN”
Zenit, despite recent failures in matches against Lokomotiv and Dynamo, remains one of the strongest teams in the RPL. The victory in the match against Sochi by a crushing score of 3:0 shows that the St. Petersburg team knows how to demonstrate effective football and knows how to dominate on the field. Especially in mine. Although the defeats and the draw with Krasnodar indicate some instability in Sergei Semak’s team.
Paris Nizhny Novgorod, despite the recent victory in the match against Ural, has difficulties in attacking actions, as confirmed by the zero draws and the small number of goals scored in the last matches. Defeats in meetings with Rostov, CSKA and Dynamo indicate problems in defense, which could become a critical factor in the game against the attacking Zenit. Especially on the road.
The history of recent head-to-head confrontations speaks in favor of Zenit, which won most of them. Taking into account the current form of the teams and their recent results, we can assume that Zenit will dominate this time too. Expect the Blues to score at least some goals based on their attacking style and Paris NN’s defensive issues. Our prediction is that Zenit wins with a comfortable advantage. We offer a bet on the victory of the Semak team with a handicap (-1.5) for 1.75.
