Aktobe will be hoping for a better result after the 2-1 Premier League loss in their previous game against Tobol.
It has been seldom in recent times where Aktobe have kept a clean sheet. The facts show that The Red and Whites have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 clashes, letting in 12 goals on the way. That pattern isn’t assured to be carried forward here, however.
Atyrau head into the encounter after a 2-0 Premier League win against Akzhayik in their last game.
A sequence of dependable displays from the Atyrau defensive unit has resulted in their ‘goals against’ tally amounting to 3 from their past 6 outings in total. In that period, their forwards have scored 6.
Head to head
A look at their most recent head to head meetings stretching back to 14/07/2018 shows us that Aktobe have won 4 of these games & Atyrau 1, with the tally of draws being 1.
Those games weren’t short on goals, either, with 23 overall at an average of 3.83 goals per match.
Team News: Atyrau
With a fully injury-free group available for selection, Atyrau boss Viktor Kumykov has zero fitness worries to speak of coming into this clash.
We’re thinking that Atyrau and Aktobe could well cancel each other out, with goals at a real premium.
We’ll have to see, but a draw might be on the cards. Our tip is therefore for a very close game with a 0-0 score at the end of the match.
