Krylya Sovetov to win
We are backing a home win as our first pick for this fixture. While both teams have been inconsistent in recent games, home victory looks plausible. The hosts have been resilient in recent games, even going as far as reaching the finals in the Russian Cup.
Over 2.5 goals
We also think there will be at least three goals in this fixture. Both teams have defensive worries coming to this game. While only six out of seventeen meetings between these teams had more than two goals, recent stats show that these teams score as much as they leak goals. We are backing a high scoreline in this first game of the season between Krylya Sovetov and Akhmat Grozny.
Goals on both sides of the pitch
We are likely to see both teams scoring on matchday. Ten out of seventeen meetings between these teams had goals on both ends. The hosts are a high scoring prospect, especially after failing to score only once in their last ten games. On the other hand, the visitors failed to find the net in only three of their last ten matches.
