Season ticket holders haven’t seen too many victories this season, with Metallurg Vidnoye languishing in the 13th position so far. The guesting Strogino will be hopeful to defend their higher league position in this one.
Metallurg Vidnoye and Strogino should both be in good shape for this meeting, as there's been enough days for both of them to train and rest since their last matches.
Metallurg Vidnoye form and stats
Metallurg Vidnoye have played 5 Pfl games at their own stadium so far this season, resulting in 2-0-3 (wins-draws-losses). Three consecutive losses here is hard to swallow for the home team. Both players, staff and the home crowd are desperate to get something from this match.
Metallurg enjoyed a nice away win last time out, playing at Salyut Belgorod's place. The match ended 2-1 with P. Barbashov (2) scoring. Nobody expected Metallurg to beat Salyut Belgorod in the last match, but sometimes David beats Goliath. Preceding that match was a defeat to Znamya Noginsk (1-2).
The manager S. Svechkar will start preparations for the next game as soon this is finished, as the hosts are going to Metallurg Lipetsk in only four days.
Metallurg Vidnoye are certainly not overdoing their scoring at home in league matches, having created 7 goals in 5 games. Metallurg have conceded 8 from these games.
Strogino form and stats
The visitors are W2-D0-L3 on the road this term. That's in the Pfl.
It's the second away game in a row for Strogino, but there's smiles all around after the 1-0 victory versus Sakhalin (placed 16th) in the Pfl last time out. It was a defeat before that one as the away game against Khimki 2 wasn't a success with a 0-2 loss.
A quick return to home after this game, as Strogino are hosting Sokol Saratov in the Pfl only four days away.
Many goals are not expected from the visiting Strogino as they have only managed to score 3 times from 5 away games in the league. Strogino struggle to build an impenetrable defensive wall in away matches with a total of 8 goals conceded from these games.
