Khimki form and stats

Khimki have played 12 Premier League games at their own stadium so far this season, resulting in 7-1-4 (wins-draws-losses). Khimki has won so many consecutive home games (six in a row) that they struggle to remember the last time points were lost here at Arena Khimki. We remember; it was Zenit.

The fans are hoping that Khimki will strike back in this match, putting things right after the 0-2 away loss in the Premier League game against Zenit (placed 1st). Before that match, a win away at Rubin Kazan.

The Khimki fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 15 in 12 matches. On the other hand, Khimki have conceded 13 goals.

Tambov form and stats

Tambov, who have the most conceded goals (45) in Premier League, have only collected 5 points from their away games in the Premier League, after 1-2-8 (11 played). The sun doesn’t shine and the birds do not sing for Tambov, who have now gone 13 games without a victory. The Rotor Volgograd game was their last win and it’s been a dry spell since. A depressing five defeats in a row for Tambov in their away games. Unhappy days, as the last time they avoided a loss on the road was versus Ural.

Home advantage was not enough for Tambov in their previous game, as they lost their Premier League-match, hosting CSKA Moskva, 1-2. It was a defeat before that one as the away game against Sochi wasn't a success with a 0-5 loss.

Tambov goalkeeper Vitalii Sychev had a great day against CSKA Moskva, but despite making nine saves the loss could not be avoided.

As mentioned above, the bookmakers do not believe the away team will get anything from this match. Checking Tambov's match history for similar games we find three matches. The home team won three of these as expected, two of them by at least two goals. Tambov managed zero draws and zero surprise wins.

The visitors have scored 7 goals from 11 away games in the league, an average of less than one per game. The Tambov manager S. Pervushin has some worries about the defense as 26 goals have been conceded in these travels.

Head 2 Head

The dueling parties have met before this season: Tambov - Khimki 1-0. Khimki-Tambov H2H statistics last six meetings regardless of arena: Khimki two wins, Tambov three wins, one draw. two of these six matches had three or more goals (over 2,5).
