Odds: 4/11 @ Bet 365

With limited midweek fixtures again this week, we once again turn our attention to the Turkmenistan Yokary Liga. Looking to make a return to winning ways on Wednesday afternoon, defending champions Altyn Asyr will make the trip to a struggling Merw.

Starting with the hosts, after finishing rock-bottom of the Yokary Liga last season after enduring what was a woeful campaign, Merw once again find themselves in the midst of a real crisis. Putting in what was a dismal display last weekend and hit with a 3-1 defeat at Köpetdag Aşgabat, Magtymguly Begenjew’s men are unsurprisingly seen to be a landslide favorite to lift the wooden spoon again this year. Losing five of their last six top-flight outings and continuing to show some worrying issues at both ends of the pitch, there is no doubt that Wednesday’s hosts will also be hugely concerned by their dier record against the defending champions. Including a 2-0 defeat when the two sides faced off back in March, Merw have now lost each of their last seven matchups against Altyn Asyr and should be in for another tough test in midweek.

As for the visitors, hit with what was a shocking 1-0 defeat away at Nebitçi last weekend, there is no doubt that Altyn Asyr simply have their sights set on making a return to winning ways in midweek. Falling back down to second and chasing down a two-point deficit, Head Coach Ýazguly Hojageldyýew will be desperate for his side to make some much-needed improvements on the road. Despite losing just a sole matchup since opening the new campaign, Altyn Asyr have managed to land just a single Yokary Liga win on their travels in their previous five attempts, a run that stems back to the 22nd of November. While Wednesday’s guests might be continuing to show some issues away from the Ashgabat Stadium, we’re backing a return to winning ways for Hojageldyýew’s side.
