Competition: Tajikistan Vysshaya Liga
Market: FK Khujand win
Odds: 3/5 @ Bet 365
With limited matchups coming from across the globe this week, we here at Soccer News have turned our attention to the midweek Tajikistan Vysshaya Liga fixtures. AFC Champions League outfit FK Khujand will make the trip to a confident FC Kuktosh on Wednesday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, while FC Kuktosh may have only just managed to hold onto their Vysshaya Liga status with a three-point buffer last season, the Yellow and Blues undoubtedly find their confidence at a high. Opening the new campaign with a 0-0 draw against another AFC Champions League outfit in Regar-TadAZ a fortnight ago, Rahmatullo Fuzailov’s men also picked up an emphatic 3-0 romp away at Istaravshan last week. Extending on their remarkable end to last year, Kuktosh are unbeaten in their last five top-flight appearances on the bounce and will be confident of causing an upset in midweek. However, while Wednesday’s hosts might be enjoying their most successful spell since making their Vysshaya Liga debut, they have shown some worrying issues on home soil. Including back-to-back 0-0 stalemates at the Stadion Neftyanik, Khujand have managed to win just one of their last six matchups in front of their own supporters.
As for the visitors, after enduring a worrying run in this year’s AFC Champions League after securing a second-place finish in the Vysshaya Liga last season, FK Khujand are a side desperate for a win. Hit with what was a shock 3-2 defeat against Khatlon last week, there is no doubt that Nikola Lazarević’s side have continued to save their best performances for their away trips. Including opening the new campaign with a 3-1 win away at CSKA Pomir, Wednesday’s guests have won four of their last five Vysshaya Liga matchups on the road. Along with continuing to shine on their travels, the Blues do hold a glittering record against Kuktosh. Including a 3-2 victory when the two sides faced off last season, Khujand have won each of their three previous meetings against Fuzailov’s men. While Wednesday’s hosts might be enjoying a recent purple patch, we’re backing an away victory in midweek.
Bet: FK Khujand 3/5 to beat FC Kuktosh in Wednesday’s Tajikistan Vysshaya Liga matchup @ Bet 365
