Our prediction for this Russia Premier League match:
After showing character in a 2-2 draw with Spartak Moscow, Sochi will be aiming to record their first win of the season when they take on Khimki on Matchday 2. Sochi came from two goals behind to share the spoils with Spartak in Moscow, and they are surely capable of beating Khimki at Fisht Olympic Stadium. Aleksandr Kokorin is no longer part of the team, and, in his absence, a man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Dmitri Poloz, who opened his goal-scoring account in the opening match of the season.
Khimki, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to CSKA Moscow, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Sochi’s party at Fisht Olympic Stadium. Sochi defenders should have experienced attacker Vladimir Dyadyun at bay.
