Sochi to Win
Nizhny Novgorod is making its debut in the Premier League following promotion from the Football National League. Their preparations for the Russian top-flight football could not have gone any worse as they succumbed to three successive defeats in preseason fixtures. On the other hand, Sochi has already been involved in a competitive fixture, securing a victory over Keshla in the Europa Conference League. The visitors should take home the three points on offer, leaving Nizhny a longer wait for this first Premier League victory.
BTTS – No
Sochi's 3-0 victory over Keshla showed their readiness for league responsibilities. Not only did they effortlessly scored against their rivals, but also kept a clean sheet. With Nizhny Novgorod scoring just two goals in three club friendlies, it looks unlikely that they will be able to pose a threat to Sochi. The White Blues should be able to secure a victory to nill in this encounter.
Correct Score – 0:2 Sochi
The three times Novgorod have met Sochi, the occurrence of nil in the scorecard has been evident. A draw and a result apiece for both sides. For their fourth encounter, we expect the result in favour of Sochi, who have the upper hand and better match readiness. With Rodrigo and Maksim Barsov finding it easy to score, a 0-2 result in Sochi's favour is expected.
