Akhmat Grozny v Arsenal Tula Betting Tips: Home side surprisingly well-priced

Monday’s Russian Premier League match looks like a rather one-sided contest as Akhmat Grozny (formerly Terek Grozny) host Arsenal Tula. Oleg Kononov’s Akhmat side have been on a bad run recently and have now lost three on the bounce – putting them ninth in the table after six games. It is still early in the season but they need to pick up again quickly to ensure they are still in the race for Europe come the end of the campaign. The Chechen side have been so reliable at the back in recent years but it has been a completely different…

FC Tosno v SKA Khabarovsk Betting Tips: Home side to come through with little resistance

Friday’s Russian Premier League fixture sees two of the newly-promoted sides meet each other as Tosno host SKA Khabarovsk. SKA will have travelled 8,765km and through seven time zones just to get to the venue for this match. Tosno have been on a very good run of late and have won two of their last three outings, most recently recording a shock victory against in-form Lokomotiv Moscow. They will also feel they should have picked up at least a point against CSKA Moscow in the second of those three matches after they put in a good performance against the former…

Zenit St. Petersburg v Rubin Kazan Betting Tips: Goals at Krestovsky Stadium

These two former Russian Premier League champions have been starved of success in the last couple of years, however, they have overhauled their squads this summer in a quest for glory. Zenit have spent €44m in this window as they look to claim their first Russian league title since 2015 as well as Champions League football; which they have now missed out on for the past two seasons. Roberto Mancini’s first match in charge of Zenit ended in a reasonably comfortable 2-0 win away at SKA Khabarovsk in the Far East. The Blue, White and Navys’ frontline looks sublime with…

FC Krasnodar v FC Tosno Betting Tips: Home side to be untroubled

This Russian Premier League match sees two of the more recently founded clubs in the country take each other on as Krasnodar, founded in 2008, host Tosno, established in 2013. Both of these teams have climbed up the ranks in unbelievably quick fashion since their creation. This is Krasnodar’s seventh consecutive season in the top flight and they are known as one of the more stable Russian clubs. As well as looking to finish well in the Russian Premier League, Krasnodar are looking to make a bigger impact in European football this time around. The Bulls got their domestic campaign…

CSKA Moscow v Lokomotiv Moscow Betting Tips: Army Men to come out on top in the Moscow derby

This match is the second Moscow derby of the week after Dynamo and Spartak played out a 2-2 draw on Tuesday. Hopefully, Friday night’s fixture between CSKA and Lokomotiv is just as entertaining. Although CSKA are one of the more likely candidates for the title this season, most people still consider them outsiders behind the likes of Spartak Moscow and Zenit St. Petersburg. Despite this, they got off to a good start in the opening round of Russian Premier League fixtures with a 3-1 win away at Anzhi Makhachkala. Usually we associate the Army Men with being strong at the back…

Anzhi Makhachkala v CSKA Moscow Betting Tips: Army Men to come out on top in Dagestan

The Russian Premier League gets back underway on Saturday and the last kickoff of the day is arguably the most interesting as Anzhi Makhachkala host CSKA Moscow. Anzhi have undergone a revolution in the last few months. In the winter transfer window, they sold a large number of their squad in favour of more Dagestani players with this revolution continuing in this summer transfer window. At the time of writing, they have signed 17 new players so far. However, they also have a registration ban due to monies owed which means they have only registered 11 players so far –…

Zenit St. Petersburg v Krylia Sovetov Betting Tips

This Russian Premier League match sees two polar opposites come head-to-head. Zenit St. Petersburg are looking to regain their title crown this season whilst lowly Krylia Sovetov are struggling to survive. Zenit had been on an excellent run of form in the Russian Premier League up until the international break, recording four wins on the spin. However, their final match before the internationals went rather wrong as they lost away to Terek Grozny. This puts Zenit second in the Russian Premier League and three points behind top of the table Spartak Moscow. Goals are certainly the order of the day…

FC Orenburg v Krylia Sovetov Betting Tips

The Russian Premier League’s bottom two come together in Orenburg on Monday night for what will probably be the most boring game you will ever witness. Luckily for punters it is relatively predictable. Orenburg’s last Premier League game should have been a thrashing away at title contenders Zenit St. Petersburg, however, somehow they managed to limit Zenit to just the one goal. Although, with goal difference way down in eighth on the list of rules of classification for the Russian Premier League, it will not help much and a defeat is still a defeat no matter how much you sugar…

Much like their last match against FC Orenburg, Zenit St. Petersburg face a newly-promoted side at home in the form of Tom Tomsk. Once again there is only one winner on the cards here and it is all about finding value. Although it was not the most convincing win against Orenburg on Monday night, The three points earned by Zenit against their fellow Gazprom-sponsored team was enough to take them to second in the Russian Premier League, behind Spartak Moscow only on the number of games won. Mirecea Lucescu’s team are still the only unbeaten side in the Russian Premier…

Zenit St. Petersburg v FC Orenburg Betting Tips

These two sides are having vastly different seasons with Zenit second from top and Orenburg second from bottom. There really is only one result on the cards here and, if you are a cynic, you can pretty much guarantee that result with the murky off-field issues in Russian football. Both of these teams are financed by Gazprom (in a way that is somehow legal thanks to subsidiary companies) and many suspect that this fact will have a lot to do with the result here. The energy company really use Zenit to push their brand and some are saying that Orenburg…

Anzhi Makhachkala v Terek Grozny Betting Tips

Monday’s Russian Premier League clash sees two sides right next to each other in the table go head-to-head. Neither of these two sides will be under the threat of relegation this season but, at the same time, neither are likely to be in with a shot at the European spots. Anzhi are, quite predictably, one of the most unpredictable sides in the division! One week they’re beating Ural and then following up with a respectable draw at home to Zenit St. Petersburg before losing against relegation-threatened Krylia Sovetov. It was a similar story last season which is why they founds…

Arsenal Tula v FC Krasnodar Betting Tips

Two teams with opposite aims are involved in Sunday’s Russian Premier League late kickoff. Arsenal looking to merely survive while Krasnodar will fancy a run towards at least the Europa League spots. Only one winner here so it is all about finding value in the market. Arsenal have dispensed with the services of Sergei Pavlov and brought in former Russian international striker Sergei Kiriakov to take the reins. To me this is an incredibly odd move. Tula have been leaking goals left, right and centre this season and have the joint second worst defensive record in the league. If they…

Spartak Moscow v FC Rostov Betting Tips

These two teams have done well so far this season and will both be looking to be at least in and around the European spots come the end of the campaign. Many people associated with Spartak would disagree with my above statement due to the fact that they currently sit top of the Russian Premier League. However, we have seen potential Spartak title challenges quickly fade away in the past and I imagine the same will happen this year – the fact that the club lost their two matches, and three competitive matches, immediately before the recent international break is…

Amkar Perm v Lokomotiv Moscow Betting Tips

This match is between my choice of both the over and under achievers in the Russian Premier League this season. With this in mind the prices on the markets were a pleasant surprise. Amkar are my overachievers of the campaign so far. Usually stuck in and around mid-table, Gadzhi Gadzhiyev’s team have found a way this season to convert what would usually be draws into wins. This may be down to Amkar’s new system which utilises three central defenders – the new fashion in the Russian Premier League – which has allowed the midfield to be a bit more flexible…

This match sees the two most exciting sides in the Russian Premier League face off. Both of these teams no doubt have championship ambitions and whoever wins this match will have laid down a real marker. Zenit managed to recover from their 2-2 draw against Anzhi (in which they were 2-0 up) by thrashing AZ Alkmaar 5-0 in the Europa League on Thursday night. The 2008 UEFA Cup champions did not put a foot wrong all night and caused the Dutch side problems from start to finish. Not only that, when Mirceu Lucescu’s team lost the ball, they were so…

Given the resources and talented playing squad at each club, both of these teams should be looking at pushing into the European spots this season. However, things have not quite gone to plan so far and they have a bit of catching up to do. Krasnodar have improved after a brief slip-up in the Russian Premier League but are still three points off the Europa League spots. Igor Shalimov’s team put in an excellent performance against Ligue 1 leaders OGC Nice. The fact they managed to score five goals shows the prowess of Krasnodar’s attack as Nice have only conceded…

FC Terek Grozny v FC Orenburg Betting Tips

This fixture is certainly one of the, shall we say, duller matches in the Russian Premier League this weekend, however, it can still be a good one for punters. Despite starting the season quite, taking 10 points from of a possible 15, Terek have slipped off the pace a bit recently and only picked up one point in their last three matches and even that was an unimpressive draw away at struggling Arsenal Tula. They currently sit ninth in the table. Generally you know what you’re going to get with the Chechen side – no frills solid football which tends…

Spartak Moscow v Ufa Betting Tips

Free scoring table-toppers Spartak welcome low-scoring Ufa to the Otrkitiye Arena, surely there is only one result on the cards here? Spartak Moscow have had an excellent revival since the arrival of Antonio Conte’s former assistant Massimo Carrera. The Red-Whites have been on a scintillating run which has seen them win five games out of six. Carrera’s side were knocked out of the Russian Cup midweek but I would not read anything into that as they fielded a weakened team away at Khabarovsk, who are based right out towards Vladivostok. Myaso are amongst the top scorers in the league with…

FC Orenburg v Ural Yekaterinburg Betting Tips

These two sides have had pretty atrocious starts to the season and will need to improve quickly if they want to escape the threat of relegation. Both of them will no doubt have targeted this as a winnable fixture so it will be interesting to see how the managers set up their teams for Sunday’s match. Orenburg have been the opposite of last year where their firepower took them to the FNL title. Despite being stuck in the relegation spots, Robert Yevdokimov’s team have actually been pretty sound at the back and have only conceded more than one goal in…

FC Rostov v Lokomotiv Moscow Betting Tips

Despite their current mid-table positions, these two teams should be finishing towards the higher end of the table this season but will do it in a rather conservative fashion. Both sides tend to grind out results rather than doing it in flamboyant style. Rostov epitomise the conservative tactics that we often see in the Russian Premier League and it worked wonders for them last season as they very nearly claimed a famous title under the stewardship or Kurban Berdyev. However, Rostov have lost their trademark in recent times and have not kept a clean sheet in any competition for over…

CSKA Moscow v Krasnodar Betting Tips

Two sides who are expected to at least make the European spots go head-to-head this Saturday. CSKA will always be towards the top of the league due to their financial muscle but Krasnodar are attempting to upset that trend by putting up a fight of their own. However, a decline in their recent form has meant that a potential title challenge is probably no longer on the cards. Despite having an atrocious forward line (CSKA have only scored 9 goals in the league this season) Leonid Slutsky’s men are fairing pretty well and currently sit in second place. It really…

Krasnodar v FC Rostov Betting Tip

Both of these teams will feel they have a good chance of making the European spots come the end of the season and so this fixture between these two rivals is vital. Despite losing their manager Oleg Kononov just a day before, Krasnodar managed to come away with a 1-0 victory over Red Bull Salzburg in the Europa League – courtesy of a Joãozinho goal rather than the usual source of Russian international Fedor Smolov. However, after a good start to the Russian Premier League season where they were comfortably sitting at the top – prompting premature talk of a…

Terek Grozny v Amkar Perm Betting Tips

These two sides have been the surprise packages of the Russian Premier League this season sitting in fourth and fifth position respectively. If they carry on their good form there is no reason why they cannot have an outside chance of fighting for the European spots. Whether they can keep up this consistency though is another thing. On the face of it, Terek have had an odd season so far. Rashid Rakhimov’s side are usually incredibly solid and do not concede many goals yet their goals against record reads 11. However, when you look closer you see that seven of…

Ural Yekaterinburg v Anzhi Makhachkala Betting Tip

Two of the league’s mid-table sides go head-to-head on Saturday with both knowing that a win could see them rise significantly up the table whilst defeat could leave fans biting their nails. Ural looked very impressive in their first match of the season against Ufa and former head coach Viktor Goncharenko followed up by a decent draw away at Rostov, however, since then it has all gone a bit downhill and they have lost three out of four since then. After not scoring for three consecutive games, Ural have managed to once again locate their shooting boots but, unfortunately for…

Tom Tomsk v Arsenal Tula Betting Tips

These two newly-promoted sides have not got off to the best start in the Russian Premier League campaign with both of them hovering dangerously close to the relegation zone. This fixture is somewhat of an early season relegation battle for these two. Tom Tomsk are lower in the table than their Saturday opposition but you have to feel sorry for the Siberian side. The fixture list has not been kind to them and they have faced Rostov, CSKA Moscow and high-flying Amkar Perm in their last three matches – needless to say they lost all three of them. Before that,…

FC Orenburg v Spartak Moscow Betting Tips

This match sees two sides at opposite ends of the table go head-to-head. Both teams need a result here but for entirely different reasons. Orenburg are currently in the relegation zone and are still yet to win a game this season. They have somewhat changed their style since last season’s promotion from the FNL. During that campaign they were known to be somewhat of a goal machine and were up there with the top scorers in the division. However, coming up to the Premier League is of course a new level entirely and so Orenburg have had to change their…

Rubin Kazan v Ural Yekaterinburg

Despite splashing the cash this summer, Rubin have had a rather rocky start to the season and currently find themselves 14th in the league without a victory to their name. Whilst this may be surprising to some, many actually predicted this due to the time it takes for so many new signings and egos to bond and create a team spirit. Despite being banished to the reserves since the start of the season, Yann M’Vila has suddenly been registered to Rubin’s first team squad. The former France international had an interesting transfer deadline day as he flew all the way…
