FK Anzi Makhachkala take on the visitors FK Rostov at “Anzhi-Arena” in the opening clash of the round four of the Russian Premier League. The match will be played in Kaspiysk on Friday, August 4th.
In starting gameweeks FK Anzi Makhachkala took those points which they had to: the side broke Amkar 1:0 in front of its supporters and lost to two Moscow’s teams - CSKA Moscow 1:3 and Lokomotiv Moscow 0:1. As a result, after three matchdays FK Anzi Makhachkala sit on the 11th place in the table with three points earned and 2:4 goal difference. Concerning “Orly”’s performance at the home field, in 2017 Aleksandr Grigoryan’s side got two victories, two draws and five defeats in nine battles.

Despite the fact that during the summer break FK Rostov’s squad has been changed for 85% and became weaker, the team was beaten only once in three opening rounds. Leonid Kuchuk’s side recorded 1:1 draw against Ural, 1:0 triumph over Amkar and 0:1 loss to Akhmat Grozny. And at the moment FK Rostov occupy the ninth position in the Premier League standings with four points taken and 2-2 goal difference. The “Selmashi”’s play on the road was its weak spot in recent years: in 2017 the team got three wins, five draws and two defeats in 11 encounters.
FK Anzi Makhachkala and FK Rostov rarely combined a lot of goals in their head-to-heads. This season both rivals showed close football. While for FK Rostov rock-solid defense has become a real trademark already. Thus, I presume that the teams are not likely to score more than two goals and break the total in Friday clash.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.0 scored goals.
