Ufa hosts Khimki in round 15 of the Russian Premier League. The match will be played on Monday, November 23rd at Neftyanik Stadium (Ufa)
Unsuccessful work in the transfer market caused a serious stagnation in Ufa. Great hopes were pinned on the arrival of Rashid Rakhimov. An experienced coach has not yet managed to solve at least some of the game problems of his players. Ufa takes the last line in the standings - only 7 points scored and a serious threat of parting with the elite. In the summer, the club was active in the transfer and rental market. As a result of such activities, a range of good players joined the teams, namely, Mrzljak, Kamilov, Pliyev, Borodin, Morozov, Danchenko, Golubev, Zhemaletdinov, and Andric. The coaching staff is in constant search of the backbone of Ufa, which will allow the team to solve the tasks set for the season.

The finalists of the last draw of the Russian Cup are storming a new height for themselves. For a start, Khimki must retain its place in the Premier League. Igor Cherevchenko's men take third place from the end of the standings (12 points scored). In the last three rounds, Khimki gained two victories (over Rostov and Rubin), which allow the team to look forward positively. The club is gradually staffed with experienced footballers - Idowu, Mogilevets, Glushakov, Kuat, and Mirzov. Almost all newcomers provide benefits to the club based near Moscow. Cherevchenko needs to solve the problem with the reliability of the defensive line (25 conceded goals), which can pull the team to the bottom of the RPL standings.
The confrontation between the two modest teams promises to be one of the central matches of the day. Ufa is in a deep crisis and practically shows no signs of life. Khimki is gaining points in the elite bit by bit. Cherevchenko's players show good performance in the attack but sag in terms of defensive actions. Taking into account the statistics of teams in the last rounds, the visitors look preferable in terms of the game organization and the tournament results. We think they will manage to gain at least a draw.
Prediction for the match: Khimki to win with +0.5 handicap
