Sakhalin form and stats

1-1-2 (win-draw-lost) are the Pfl numbers at home for Sakhalin so far this season. We have seen two home losses in a row now for Sakhalin, who are hoping that the phrase “third time lucky” applies to them.

Times are rough for the home team, having gone 285 minutes without scoring a league goal. E. Matrakhov was the last player to find the net.

Sakhalin's previous game was also a home match, the defeat 0-1 versus Strogino (placed 8th). Ahead of that match, Sakhalin lost 0-2 at home to Salyut Belgorod.

The Sakhalin fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 5 in 4 matches. 4 goals have been conceded.

As you can tell from the results above, Metallurg was very dominant against Khimki 2, winning the match with a scoreline that even the finest fortune teller couldn't predict. 4-0 (!) with S. Chernyshov providing the goals.

Metallurg has displayed an ability to score goals in away matches in the league this season, 7 goals from 4 games. Metallurg Lipetsk's defence is not exactly unbeatable as they have conceded 7 goals from these trips.
