AKM vs SO Dream11 : Relegation zone battle sees Sochi and Akhmat Grozny entertain each other in a must win encounter for either side
For both Sochi and Akhmat Grozny, life hasn’t been too kind in the ongoing edition of the Russian Premier League. Arguably two of the worst outfits out of the 16 partaking teams, both of today’s opponents as we get ready to throw close our doors to gameweek 11 in the marquee league, find themselves slumped horrifically in the relegation zone.
Biting off more than they have been able to chew, the two outfits could see their chances of survival disappear up in smoke if they aren’t able to wrench out of the impasse they find themselves embroiled in. It’s been a howler of a start to either side with both of them enduring seasons akin to each other to languish owing to the momentous lapses prevelant in either outfit.
In a completely identical set of results, both find themselves on 9 points with just the 2 wins from the 10 matches they have contested apiece in the league up till now. With both having lesser points than the total number of matches they have fought it out in, the figure is an epitome and testament to the squandering form of their sorties, one which threatens to peg them into the trenches of the league standings for eternity.
What Sochi will be taking heart from though ahead of today’s clash is their previous result, one which saw them engaged in a 5 goal thriller to emerge unscathed as the managed to scramble together to what was only their second win of the campaign. Defeating Dynamo Moscow 3-2, the side will be looking to build on that performance and make it two wins on the bounce for the first time when they take on Akhmat Grozny who were restricted to a 1-1 draw by Samara the last time around.

AKM vs SO Dream11 Goal-Keeper
When you have two sides who have conceded a harrowing 28 goals in between them till now, the likelihood of a cleansheet is the last thing which is on our mind from this clash. Our selection of Akhmat Grozny’s Evgeni Gorodov was only due to the attacking exuberance Sochi mustered up in their previous match, one which should see Gorodov entertain an entire barrage of shots today. It will offer him the offer to exonerate those shots, parry them away successfully and get in a slew of points to make him our choice for this one.
AKM vs SO Dream11 Defenders
Our defending facet is reminiscent of our aforementioned peddled discourse, one which sees us pick up the bare minimum of three defenders in our backline for today’s clash. There was only one agenda on our mind when crafting out this segment of our side, one which revolved around going in for the attacking names, players who incorporate a defensive and attacking skill set in unison.
This sees us pick up a partnership of Fedor Kudryashov and CB Miha Mevlja with Miha’s goal in the previous match a testament to his attacking skill set and an eye for the goal. Elsewhere from the opposition we have just he one pick wrap up our side for this encounter in the form of Magomed Musalov.
AKM vs SO Dream11 Midfielders
With Akhmat Grozny completely drying up on the scoring side of things, putting in applying and chastening displays in the attacking facet, we have just the one pick from the side for this match in the form of Bernard Berisha.
Elsewhere we have gone in with an entire trio from Sochi, picking up their entire component of pivotal players, names who can easily put in a pulsating display today to obliterate their opponents and fabricate goals and assists at will. W begin with Dusan Lagator, the CAM who has been tasked with plying off the line of the striker and feeding him with adequate service whilst at the same time contributing with his shots as well.
Christian Noboa and Aleksey Pomerko will be partnering him up for the impending clash with both making for a daunting set of players.
AKM vs SO Dream11 Strikers
A goal in the bygone clash for him makes Sochi’s Anton Zabolotny our first pick in this segment. The striker has been in imperious touch, one of the main factors for the side’s revival in the league with his ability to scour past defenders seamlessly infusing a fresh influx of plaudits into the side’s play.
He’s partnered by Andrei Mostovoy for this one while the side’s only corer from the previous draw see us choose Andres Ponce from Akhmat for the upcoming encounter.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Anton is selected as our captain for today’s fixture while we are going in with Andrei as the vice-captain.
