Getting closer to the top teams is at stake when these two mid-table clubs battle it out. Both will be aiming to improve their league table standing, Rostov in 7th and Akhmat Grozny in 10th place.

Both teams should be fairly well rested for this game, as they have had some quiet days to prepare. Hopefully this will translate into lots of action on the pitch.

These teams have little in common geographically as Akhmat Grozny have to travel 2000 kilometers to reach their opponents. The trip home will be especially long if the match ends in defeat.

Rostov form and stats

Rostov have played 4 Premier League games at their own stadium so far this season, resulting in 2-1-1 (wins-draws-losses).

The fans are hoping that Rostov will strike back in this match, putting things right after the 2-4 away loss in the Premier League game against Sochi (placed 4th). A strong away win before that one, visiting Arsenal Tula and winning 3-2.

As you can tell by the result above, the goals flowed freely in the previous game and the stadium rocked. Could there be another goal fest today?

Rostov are certainly not overdoing their scoring at home in league matches, having created 4 goals in 4 games. As for guarding their own goal, Rostov have only let in 2 goals at home.

Akhmat Grozny form and stats

Playing away, Akhmat Grozny have won 2 games, drawn 2 and suffered 2 defeats in the Premier League this season.

It's another away game for the visitors, as they travelled to Rubin Kazan' (placed 9th) in their previous outing. The Premier League match ended in a draw 1-1. That result followed a home victory 2-0 versus Ural.

There might be some complaints about the fixture list from the Akhmat manager A. Talalaev as the team has another away game coming up in only three days, this time against Shinnik.

Scoring goals is the main ingredient in creating success in football, and not only at home. So far Akhmat have scored 6 goals in 6 league games away. As opposed to that, Akhmat have seen the ball go into their own net 7 times on the road.

Head 2 Head

As for the last ten games between these two teams, there's three Rostov victories, two draws and five Akhmat Grozny wins. Over/under statistics; two of these games ended with three goals or more, eight matches with two goals or less.
