Today’s Soccer Prediction Enisei Krasnoyarsk – Anzhi Makhachkala
Enisei finishes third in the second Russian championship and is now fighting for a first league position in this play-off against Anzhi – the 14th place of the first league. The last meeting between the two took place three years ago in the second league, both teams winning the matches played on their own ground.
Because their stadium does not meet the criteria for this play-off, it is forced to receive a guest visit to Kazan, which certainly can not be considered an advantage. Coach Alenchev can only be than satisfied with the form of teams before this game, his team strikers scored nine goals in the last five games. Their offensive game brought them three victories on their own ground, then be defeated by Khimki and the result of a draw in the last round, 2-2 with Shinnik. Unfortunately for Enisei missed the little chance of direct advancement in the first Russian league, accumulating one point less than Samara and three points to Orenburg champion. Their team seems to have no problems during the absences, coach Alenichev will be able to use the team’s maximum capabilities.
Anzhi can be pleased with the fact that he managed to avoid direct elimination from the first league, their advantage being the higher goal than the penultimate ranked Tosno. The team comes after a period in which he has lost three consecutive stages, being in a form crisis. Team coach Skipchenko, announcing a series of changes in the home team, will certainly need to improvise because he will not be able to count goalkeeper Loria and striker Markelov – both being injured and Danchenko who is injured. Anzhi is expected to also benefit from the fact that the hosts do not evolve on their land in Krasnoyarsku but on the Kazan stadium.
