Premier League duel: Close contest expected between Arsenal Tula and Akhmat Grozny

The home fans are expecting three points in this fixture, as the home advantage should be put to good use versus a struggling visitor. Arsenal Tula are in the 10th position while the guesting Akhmat Grozny worry at 14th.

Best bookmaker betting odds:

Arsenal Tula have less rest than Akhmat Grozny in this fixture, as the hosts were involved in a Premier League game only four days ago. At least it's nice to return home after that away game at Rostov.

It's quite the trip for Akhmat Grozny when visiting Arsenal Tula as the cities are 1600 kilometers apart.

Arsenal Tula form and stats

With 3 Premier League wins, 3 draws and 6 defeats from their home games, Arsenal Tula are certainly not brimming with confidence. It's trouble wherever Arsenal Tula are playing these days as they have suffered four straight defeats now, regardless of arena. They really need to get back to winning ways. We have seen two home losses in a row now for Arsenal, who are hoping that the phrase “third time lucky” applies to them.

Preceding that match was a defeat to Spartak Moskva (2-3).

The bookmakers consider this a fairly even contest. One could say only the home advantage separates the teams. It could be relevant to look at how Arsenal Tula have performed in matches similar to this (as small favourites). Our database has found three matches with the results: Won one, drawn two and lost zero.

The manager I. Cherevchenko will start preparations for the next game as soon this is finished, as the hosts are going to Dinamo Moskva in only three days.

Arsenal has scored 16 league goals at home this season, in 12 matches. On the other hand, Arsenal have conceded 16 goals.

Akhmat Grozny form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Akhmat Grozny so far with only 11 points returning home. The records show 3-2-6 (win-draw-lose).

Akhmat delivered a 1-1 draw playing at home against Sochi (placed 9th) in their previous match; a Premier League game. Ahead of that match was the victory versus Krylya Sovetov at their stadium, the result 4-2.

As mentioned above, this is an open game with no clear favourite. We have found nine similar matches played by Akhmat Grozny in our archives, and the results are: five wins for Akhmat, zero draws and four defeats.

A new game in only three days for Akhmat, the Premier League home match versus CSKA Moskva. Busy days.

The visitors have scored 9 goals from 11 away games in the league, an average of less than one per game. 16 goals have been conceded by Akhmat in these games.

Head 2 Head
