Anzhi form and stats

Anzhi have played 10 Pfl games at their own stadium so far this season, resulting in 4-3-3 (wins-draws-losses). Two defeats in a row at home hurts for Anzhi, their manager A. Sadirov and the supporters. There are certain expectations for improvement.

Preceding that match was the home game against Kuban Kholding that was lost 0-1.

Anzhi are certainly not overdoing their scoring at home in league matches, having created 12 goals in 10 games. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 1 of these goals has been scored in their last three home matches. Anzhi have conceded 10 in these home matches.

Biolog form and stats

There's been little loot from Biolog's travels as they have only collected 4 points from 9 away games in the Pfl. Biolog only have 1 win to counter their 7 defeats and 1 draw. Biolog seem to be suffering from homesickness with two consecutive losses away. Third time lucky?

Biolog go into this game after a win, the home game against Spartak Nal'chik that ended 1-0. It was a defeat before that one as the away game against Chernomorets wasn't a success with a 0-1 loss.

Biolog find the net regularly in their away games. 9 goals from 9 away fixtures in the league. The Biolog manager L. Nazarenko has some worries about the defense as 21 goals have been conceded in these travels.

Head 2 Head

These teams' last encounter with each other was the Biolog - Anzhi 1-1 earlier this season. As for the last three games between these two teams, there's two Anzhi victories, one draw and zero Biolog wins. Over/under statistics; one of these games ended with three goals or more, two matches with two goals or less.
