SO Vs AKM Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Mundane Sochi hit a rut as the side’s modus operandi fails to convert into wins for the side.
Across the last couple of seasons, Sochi’s inability to really challenge for the glistening trophy has been down to inconsistency. Despite showing the calibre to launch a title bid, the side’s ever present inability to embark on a meaningful winning spree has cost them a spot in the pinnacles of the points tally.
Its come to bite them this time around as well with the club languishing in 9th spot after finding themselves in the top 4 only a month back. Failing to win four of their last five matches, the side has taken on the look of a laggard and dreary attacking setup, one which has failed to forage goals at crucial junctures.
Where Sochi have failed to traverse their way past thin ice, Akhmat Grozny on the other hand have picked up the speed off late. Hitting a rich patch of form, the side is currently unbeaten in its last five matches to climb as high as 7th place in the points tally.

What has served Sochi in this time of anguish is their defensive gameplan. The ability to close out attacks due to Soslan Dzhanayev’s saves has seen the club pull off a couple of draws.
Where the goals have vanished up in thin smoke for Sochi, Akhmat Grozny on the other hand have gone from strength to strength in defence. The visiting team has three cleansheets in its last five encounters and looks good for a second successive one today.
It sees us opt for Miroslav Bogosavac, Maksim Nenakhov and Zoran Nizic from the club while wingback Elmir Nabiullin brings his attacking impetuous into our setup from Sochi.
Despite enduring the worst period of his season off late, Sochi’s Christian Noboa continues to remain as the side’s top scorer with the 7 goals and an assist in his kitty. Where he’s gone off the boil, Nikita Burmistrov has picked up the speed to come alive and score on five occasions for the club.
Akhmat Grozny’s leading scorer, the imperious Bernard Berisha was always going to be an instant pick for us today. Three goal man Artiom Timofeev and the enterprising Artem Polyarus will be completing the set of picks from the club for the showdown.
Striker Vladimir Iljin who has scored on the four occasions and laid up two assists for his side completes the attacking quartet from the team.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Berisha’s six goals and two assists see him be our captain while Iljin is the vice-captain.
Solsan, Miroslav, Elmir, Nizic, Nenakhov, Noboa, Burmistrov, Timofeev, Polyarus, Berisha, Iljin
