URY vs SO Dream 11 : Winless Sochi continue to traverse for their first elusive win when they square off against Ural in the day’s only encounter.
Gameweek 7 in the Russian Premier League draws to a culmination today with Ural and Sochi squaring off against each other in a bottom of the table clash, one which comes bearing with it immense consequences for both the outfits. Not only are the three points pivotal for either outfit in this one but either side will be well aware that today’s opponent is one they can easily outshine if they imbed a scintillating performance.
For newly promoted Sochi, life in the Russian Premier League has gotten off to an adverse start. It’s been an apathy for them, one which saw them score their first goal in six matches the last time around to salvage a draw against Orenburg, their third successive one. Paired with three consecutive defeats, the side are languishing in 15th place with a goal difference of minus 6, failing to get to terms with the competition in the echelons of the league.
Elsewhere Ural are making an entry in today’s clash having lost two successive clashes, a predicament of a run which sees them winless in four matches. The side have wavered horridly after winning their opening two encounters, being trounced by their encounters to pummel all the way down to 11th place with their most recent defeat being a 3-1 trashing by Samara.

Goal-Keeper for URY vs SO Dream 11
With two cleansheets in the previous encounter, Sochi have had to thank their goal-keeper Soslan Dzhanayev for the incredible turnaround. After conceding 6 goals in their first three matches, the side opted for a change in between the sticks, roping in the services of Soslan to incredible success.
He delivered an incredible performance against Ufa, following it up with an even more profound display against CSKA Moscow to stamp his authority as a ravishing shot stopper. We envisage him to rummage his way to a hoard of saves today as well and get in some crucial points for our Dream 11 side.
Defenders for URY vs SO Dream 11
Despite Sochi having scored just one goal, their defensive resilience, determination, grit and valour can’t be question. The side were unlucky to see their cleansheet spree be snapped the last time, conceding an own goal to spoil was an extremely resolute defensive display. And they’ll be resorting to their defensive gameplan today as well as they look to curtail Ural from finding a goal and look to hit them with their counter-attacks.
This sees us bring in rightback Nikita Kalguin from the side while from the hosts we are getting in a duo. The fact that Sochi has just one goal in six matches is one which takes precedence when making these picks, seeing us opt for CB Varazdat Haroyan and rightback Denys Kulakov from the side with a cleansheet extremely likely for them today.
Midfielders for URY vs SO Dream 11
Although Ural have been pathetic when it comes to defence, letting slip in 13 goals, the side have still managed to punch above their weight in the attacking cauldron. With 9 goals to their name, the side have regaled us in several sensational soirees and with a win of paramount importance to them today, expect the side to come hot out of the blocks in this one.
This sees us rope in a deadly two man partnership from the side, one made up of Nikolay Dimitrov and CAM Eric Bicfalvi. Elsewhere from the opposition we have picked out a duo as well with us seamlessly blending in attack and defence here by getting in Christian Noboa and Ibrahim Tsallagov.
Strikers for URY vs SO Dream 11
After getting the first gol for his side in this edition of RPL, it was only fair for us to include Sochi’s lone man upfront, Dmitri Poloz. From the home outfit we have selected Vladimir Iljin and Pavel Pogrebnyak to hold fort for us today.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Bicfalvi is our captain for this one after being in terrific form across the six matches the side have contested in while Pavel is our vice-captain.
