Analysis and forecast for the match of the 5th round of the championship of Russia “Sochi” – “Rostov” (19.08.2023)
The new season of the Russian Premier League is rapidly gaining momentum. Gone are two games in the group stage of the Russian Cup and four rounds of the RPL. On August 19, four games of the 5th day will take place. In one of them, at the Fisht stadium, Sochi will host Rostov. The starting whistle will sound at 20:00 Moscow time.
Which RPL records will drop this season:
15 penalties in an RPL season is not the limit. Who will beat the record of Karpin and Rostov?
The new season of “leopards” started very badly. In four RPL matches, they beat only Baltika (2:0). Dmitry Khokhlov’s wards lost to Krasnodar (0:2), Akhmat (1:2) and CSKA (1:3). In the Russian Cup, he defeated Fakel (3:1) and lost to Orenburg (0:2).
Malinovsky will move from Marseille to Genoa.
Sochi beat only obvious outsiders. Baltika has not yet joined the rhythm of the RPL, and Fakel in general closes the standings of the Russian championship. It is also worth noting that Akhmat and Orenburg have big problems at the beginning of the new season.
Grozny will not find his game, and Orenburg will get used to the new head coach. For both teams, the victory over Sochi was the first of the season. Khokhlov has accumulated a lot of questions. His pupils lack both power in attack and reliability in defense.
Kane needs to adapt:
Harry Kane will lose his scoring instinct. Bayern made a mistake with the choice of Lewandowski’s successor
By the way, Sochi scored the most in their own net since the beginning of last season in the Russian Premier League – five goals. In the last round match against CSKA, striker Luka Djordjevic scored an own goal. In total, during this period of time, Sochi residents conceded 61 goals and scored only 41.
Union announced the transfer of Volland from Monaco.
Rostov started the new season more confident than Sochi. In four rounds of the Russian Championship, he beat Fakel (2:1) and Rubin (3:0). The yellow-blues tied with Zenit (1:1). Lost to Wings of the Soviets (1:5). They also beat Rubin (1:0) and lost to Ural (0:1) in the Russian Cup.
Failure is understandable. “Wings of the Soviets” and “Ural” got an excellent move. They started the new season very well. As a result, they rank at the top of the ranking. Samarans are in fifth place, ahead of Zenit by one point. The Yekaterinburgers, in turn, occupy the second line.
For the Rostovites, the most important thing was to rehabilitate themselves after defeats. They did very well with this. A crushing last round win over Rubin will surely give Valery Karpin’s men more self-confidence.
Thanks to the efforts of the mentor of the Russian national team, after the results of the last draw for the Russian championship, the yellow-blue took fourth place in the standings. If they hadn’t lost a lot of points at the end, they could have finished the season with medals.
You can bet that Rostov will not lose and the total is less than 4.5 goals with a coefficient of 1.81 on the Fonbet line. And for the record, the bookmaker gives free bet 2000 rubles. The history of face-to-face meetings shows that Sochi residents are one of the most uncomfortable opponents for Rostovites. The yellow-blue have not won in any of the last eight games.
Napoli enters the new season with Rudi Garcia:
To no avail, Napoli replaced Luciano Spalletti with Rudi Garcia. Inzaghi will exceed all expectations!
There are only two draw results. Moreover, in both cases, the Rostovites performed at their home stadium. Now Valery Karpin has, perhaps, the best chance to take revenge on the people of Sochi. The opponent has a lot of problems building the game both in defense and attack.
Chelsea defender Reece James will be out for several months.
Not too many goals are expected. In 30 rounds in the last draw of the Russian championship, the Rostovites conceded 44 goals and scored 48. It is possible that the next game will be productive, but we do not expect more than four goals for two of the teams. In none of the last four face-to-face meetings has the goals scored indicator exceeded this mark.
Prediction and bets for the match RPL “Sochi” – “Rostov” August 19, 2023
Sochi is far from in the best shape. The club loses even to teams that are experiencing great difficulties at the beginning of the new season. Despite the head-to-head statistics and the fact that the match will be held in Sochi, there is more confidence in Rostov’s victory. He finished better last season and looks better this season. It seems that the yellow-blues at least will not lose. We don’t expect many goals as both clubs rarely score. The bet that Rostov will not lose, and on the total of less than 4.5 goals in Fonbet is taken as 1.81, and the bookmaker also gives free bet 2000 rubles for record.
Tender: Rostov will not lose and the total is below 4.5 goals for 1.81.
