AKM v ORN Dream11 : Bottom of the league table clash sees Orenburg and Akhmat Grozny square off against each other in search of three invaluable points
2 sides, 6 matches in between them and just the 1 win. Figures which tell the story of how dismal today’s opponents, Akhmat Grozny and Orenburg have been in their opening three matches of the Russian Premier League, two sides who have been trounced by their oppositions with ease.
While Akhmat Grozny in 17th place still find themselves having emerged as the winners once, Orenburg on the other hand are on a three match losing spree. They have scored just twice in that harrowing run, conceding thrice to sit right at the bottom of the points tally, still searching for an elusive win which has continued to evade them.
Akhmat meanwhile are on a two match losing run as well with the side refusing to win a match ever since their opening day 1-0 win over Krasnodar. While the previous encounter saw them lose narrowly to Rubin Kazan as they were put down 1-0, the defeat preceding that was especially harrowing with Ural exposing the side’s glaring weaknesses in a 3-0 trashing.
With both sides in dire need of registering a win today, knowing that they are up against a rare opposition they can get the better of, expect this match to be a finely contested one. Both sides will leave no stone unturned in their quest of getting the three points in a match which promises to be decided by extremely small margins.
Although they have failed to open the scoring after their league opener, we see Akhmat going on to score today when they come across an opponent who have leaked 6 goals in three matches. Orenburg should find the opposition’s goal as well but we see Akhmat just about managing to outscore their opponents on the night and get the three points.
