At the end of last season, Neftekhimik ranked sixth in the First League standings. In the last 10 rounds, they have only suffered two losses and three draws. Most of the points the team lost on the road. At home, they drew with Baltika (0:0) and lost to Rodina, who made excellent progress (1:5).
Russia fell to 25th place in the UEFA ranking.
In the summer, the Nizhnekamsk club solidly strengthened the team by signing several players from the RPL and not only. He was joined by Lokomotiv midfielder Maxim Petrov, Ural defender Alexei Gerasimov (on loan for the season), Krasnodar midfielder David Kokoev and Zvezda striker Matvey Pershin.
Neftekhimik started the new season with a win over Volgar (2:1). Then she lost to Alania (0:1). The result was marred by the fact that Kirill Morozov received a straight red card in the 26th minute. The opponent took advantage of the numerical advantage and scored the winner at the end of the first half.

In the performance of “Neftekhimik” it was one of the worst performances. Even before, removing moments was not enough. “Alania” dominated and created one threat after another at the gates of Andrey Golubev. The Nizhnekamsk goalkeeper made many great saves, but his efforts were not enough.

Khimki finished 15th in the RPL ranking last season. In the last 12 rounds, they have only beaten Torpedo, who finished in the last row (4:2). In addition, the red and black tied with Krylya Sovetov (0:0) and Spartak (1:1). During this time period, they scored just eight goals, while conceding 30 themselves.
However, Khimki was remembered not so much for relegation to the First League, but for incomprehensible and even absurd decisions of the leadership. First, the sudden dismissal of Sergei Yuran and the appointment of Spartak Gogniev to his post. Then the red and black parted ways with Denis Glushakov and other prominent players.
Khimki also invited a priest to the local stadium to bless the pitch and changing rooms. They then fired Gogniev and appointed Andrei Talalaev, who was fired by Akhmat, to the head coach position. All this left an extremely unpleasant mark on the reputation of the club’s bosses.
In summer, the rojinegros redrew the composition. However, this did not help much. They started the new season with defeats in meetings with Tyumen (1:3) and Torpedo (1:2). Avtozavodtsam “Khimki” lost at the home stadium. They got lost again. The defenders made a lot of mistakes.
Khimki himself scored only from a free kick. Ilya Berkovsky caught the goalkeeper Torpedo, who took an unsuccessful position. The red-and-blacks also had chances to score in the game, but the execution let us down. The opponent created more potential scoring chances and naturally won.

In this scenario, Neftekhimik’s victory is much more credible. It has an order of magnitude fewer newcomers than Khimki. Consequently, teamwork is better. In addition, the red and black have huge problems with travel. Through 15 rounds in the last RPL draw, they picked up just one win, and even that was won by Sergei Yuran at the start of the season.

In addition, Khimki twice, not without luck, achieved a draw. During this period of time, they scored 12 goals, while they themselves conceded as many as 42. You can bet on the victory of Neftekhimik in bookmakers with a coefficient of 2.65.
Talalaev is trying with all his might to convince the public that everything is in order with his team. He recently stated that Khimki got off to a good start. The coach shared his opinion that the wards are playing well and the result will come later. Are his words true?
Forecast and bets for the match of the First League “Neftekhimik” – “Khimki” on July 30, 2023
The home stadium gives Neftekhimik a solid advantage. Despite the defeat in the match with Alania, he seems the favorite for the next meeting. The Nizhnekamsk team is much more stable and better played than Khimki. Black and red still can’t get out of the black stripe. They fail a lot and lose chances. Also, Khimki has big problems with travel. Everything indicates that they will suffer another defeat.
