AKM Vs VOL Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Left without a goal in their opening two encounters, today’s opponents scour for missing attacking guile.
Akhmat Grozny and Rotor Volgograd have been a spitting image of each other inside the opening two gameweeks of the Russian Premier League. Both the clubs have endured identical results, scored no goals and gone onto ship the two goals inside the space of the last week.
While Rotor Volgograd’s form and league position can be untenable, the side has more to show for just the one point from its first two matches. Back into the league after earning promotion last season, few gave the side any chance when the club’s opening fixtures were drawn up in the 2020-21 edition of the exhibition league.
Taking on Dynamo Moscow the last time around, many envisioned this to be an affair where the new entrants would be toyed around. However, the club not only charted its way across tough water but ended up establishing its place inside the league in no time after refraining last season’s second placed club to a 0-0 draw.
After opening their new season with a 0-0 draw, Akhmat Grozny were quick to revert to familiar results. The 2-0 defeat against Spartak Moscow was vindictive of the team’s plight last season, one which saw the side in the relegation ruckus for a majority of the season.
With the point apiece and results which have emulated each other, today’s tie is going to be contested on extreme level footing. We envision this one ending in a drab and languid draw, one where neither side is able to scour its first goal in the league.

AKM Vs VOL Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Aleksandr Dovbnya was quick to show everyone why he was held in such high esteem in the lower tier of football in the country the last time around. In what couldn’t have been a more flawless and complete performance, the goal-keeper sent Dynamo Moscow with as he rifled his way to a string of saves.
AKM Vs VOL Dream11 Defenders
That cleansheet against Dynamo Moscow is what sees us opt for the two defenders from the newly promoted club. Rotor Volgograd showed that they are not just here to make up numbers with the team showing its here for the long haul as the team ingrained in place a pinch perfect gameplan in the defensive gambit.
And a reason why the club was able to execute their tactics to the fore was down to the partnership of Anton Piskunov and Danil Stepanov to see both be instant picks for us today.
Elsewhere, Akhmat Grozny will be quietly confident of a cleansheet as well today. The side comes across a Rotor side yet to familiarise itself with action in the league, a side which has failed to score its first goal in the competition after two matches.
It’s a side which will accord Arsen Adamov and Miroslav Bogosavac a chance to string up a second cleansheet in three encounters to see both be instilled in our side.
AKM Vs VOL Dream11 Midfielders
Although Akhmat Grozny are yet to score this season, we were hardly deterred in opting for Odise Roshi from the side. He top scored for the side last season with the 7 goals, a figure which saw his side avoid relegation in the league.
Pairing him is Bernanrd Berisha and Oleg Ivanov, two names who’ll be looking to capitalise on Rotor’s relative inexperience in the league. Rotor meanwhile will see the enterprising Sergei Makarov become the first pick for us from the club with the player pulling off an upbeat display of tackling and blocking the last time around.
Ilya Zhigulev slots his way alongside him, a player capable of guiding his side to its elusive goal in the league.
AKM Vs VOL Dream11 Strikers
He’s gotten no support from his counterparts this season but that has hardly fazed Kamil Mullin. The striker has utilised his ability to traverse past defenders to wage a lone battle for the side, performances which make him our sole selection in this slot.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Given the high likelihood of a cleansheet today, Piskunov will captain our side while Bogosavac is our vice-captain.
