Europa League

Arsenal, Man U, Roma Are Analysed Sportpesa UEFA Europa Games Of 98 Odds

Astra Ploieşti fans will want a repeat of their previous result, being a 0-1 Liga I triumph against Chindia Targoviste.

In their preceding 6 fixtures, Bogdan Andone's Astra Ploieşti have managed to score a total of 9 times.

Their previous form shows that Astra Ploiesti are unbeaten in the league by Botoșani in their previous 12 games. A long run without a loss and are undefeated in their last 2 league matches at home.

Since tasting defeat last time out to Sepsi Sfântu Gheorghe in Liga I competition, Botosani and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.

Looking at their form, and Botoșani have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, seeing opposing sides hit 7 goals in total. In defence, Botoșănenii have some weaknesses to address. That sort of pattern isn’t assured to be continued into this match, of course.

A look at their previous results shows us that Botoșani have not lost to Astra Ploieşti in games played away from home for the previous 2 league games and have not won away from home in their last 2 league matches.

Head to head

Inspecting their past head-to-head clashes dating back to 03/12/2018 shows that Astra Ploieşti have won 2 of these games and Botoșani 0, with the tally of drawn results standing at 4.

An aggregate of 12 goals were produced between them throughout the course of those matches, with 7 of them for Dracii Negri and 5 being from Botoșănenii. That’s an average goals per game figure of 2.

Team News: Astra Ploiesti

Astra Ploieşti manager Bogdan Andone will be thankful to have no fitness worries whatsoever before this clash owing to a fully injury-free squad ready to go.

Team News: Botosani

Owing to a completely healthy group available to select from, Botoșani boss Marius Croitoru doesn’t have any fitness concerns to report before this match.

Prediction

Botoșani and Astra Ploieşti should play out a closely-fought contest here. 

Ufa will be hoping for a better result following a 0-3 Premier League defeat in their last game at the hands of Rubin Kazan.

In that match, Ufa had 46% possession and 12 attempts at goal with 5 on target. On the other side, Rubin Kazan had 13 shots on goal with 9 of them on target.

A recurring feature of recent Ufa games is the number of results with a nil in them.

From their previous 6 clashes before this one, in as many as 5 of them a wager on both teams to score would have been a loser.

Ahead of this clash, Ufa have not won against Lokomotiv Moscow in their last 6 league matches.

Lokomotiv Moscow will go into the meeting after a 3-1 Premier League win as they beat Sochi in their last outing.

In that game, Lokomotiv Moscow had 53% possession and 13 attempts on goal with 5 on target. Sochi had 14 shots at goal with 4 of them on target.

Indicating their penchant for eventful matches, we’ve seen goals 21 times in the last 6 matches in which Lokomotiv Moscow have taken to the pitch.

Looking at the pre-match facts, Lokomotiv Moscow have left without a victory over Ufa in away games against them for the last 3 league matches and haven't been beaten by Ufa in away games against them for the last 2 matches in the league.

Head to head

A review of their most recent head to head meetings dating back to 22/04/2018 shows that Ufa have won 0 of these & Lokomotiv Moscow 2, with the number of drawn results being 4. A combined sum of 6 goals were produced between them in these games, with 2 from Gorozhane and 4 for Loko.

The last league fixture between these sides was Premier League match day 11 on 17/10/2020 when it ended Lokomotiv Moscow 1-0 Ufa.

Team News: Ufa

Ufa boss Rashid Rakhimov will be grateful not to have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this game owing to a completely injury-free squad to pick from.

Team News: Lokomotiv Moscow

Lokomotiv manager Marko Nikolić has multiple availability issues to deal with. Zé Luís (Fracture), Anton Miranchuk (Muscle Injury) and Mikhail Lysov (Arthroscopie) are not ready for selection. Dmitri Rybchinskiy cannot play in this game through suspension.

Prediction

I feel that over the course of the game, Ufa may find it difficult to put one past this Lokomotiv Moscow side who will likely score one, at least.
