Our prediction for this Other match:
Khujand will be aiming to build on a 3-1 win over ten-man CSKA Pomir when they take on Khatlon on Matchday 2. Khujand impressed in their opener, but they need to keep on improving their game if they are to put an end to Istiqlol’s dominance in the Tajikistan Vysshaya Liga. Serbian tactician Nikola Lazarevic is doing a great job with the blues, and they are seen as hot favourites to win Sunday’s football game against Khatlon.
The visitors made a promising start to the season as well, with the team beating Istaravshan 2-1 at home, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Khujand. In their last meeting in the national championship Khujand recorded a 2-1 win over Khatlon. Even though Sunday’s game will be played behind closed doors, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the title-chasing team.
