“MK”: “Arsenal” is clearly gathered momentum in the autumn matches, but to score at least a goal in gate of Igor Akinfeev, who missed the last time in the Premier League back in August, it will be extremely difficult. On the other hand, prior to his playing philosophy instilled the team with Miodrag Bozovic, far from a closed, defensive football, and are unlikely to put the proverbial bus in their own penalty area. Will be able to take advantage of this situation the army or not — the main issue of this meeting. Blue and red with high probability will be able to keep his goal intact. But will he be able to score at least once? Prediction: 0:1

MK: the band score only on major holidays, and collect points manage the team of Leonid Kuchuk this fall with even more work. A clear plan of the coaching staff of the hosts for the upcoming match to predict is not difficult. “Rostov” will arrange in this meeting a draw, which produce will not be so difficult.

“Spartak” has obvious problems with positional attack, and the available areas and opportunities for quick counterattacks and the red and whites will be a minimum. And Massimo Carrera will have to experiment with the right flank of the defense, which after the trauma of Andrei Yeshchenko has remained one of Marko Petkovic. The Italian specialist has released a Serb on the pitch in the Cup game with nalchikskim “Spartacus”, but did not say that the trial can be called successful. So it is not excluded a variant at which on the right brow can be someone from the Central defenders or, for example, Lorenzo Melgarejo. Such a permutation is not exactly add to the reliability and teamwork red-white protection and other matches to check the options for Carrera ligachampion before the most important meeting in Seville just yet. It turns out that in terms of attack the right flank are unlikely to Spartak in Rostov-na-Donu serious help, and heads expect from a pair of Promes — Adriano, on neutralization where Kucuk and must place a bet. Prediction: 0:0

October 29, Sunday

Factors of bookmakers: 2,25—2,75—3,85

Stream: “Our football”

“MK”: the Perm and Urals rack up quite regularly in the last month points ahead on this indicator any of the leaders of the championship. Is hosting a meeting in Yekaterinburg, one would safely bet on a goalless draw, but in Perm “Amkar” should play a little more relaxed, not buttoning a protective coat on all the buttons. Prediction: 1:1

“Dynamo” (Moscow) — Tosno (Tosno)

14.00. Khimki. The Stadium “Khimki” (18 636)

The total value of the players: 25 650 000 / 14 450 000

Stream: “Our football”

MK: Match direct rivals from the bottom of the standings promises to be rich in combat and martial arts all over the pitch. Your goal tenancy usually find in any match, but conceded the team of Dmitry Parfenov regularly. The fans of “Dynamo” for certain will drive their team forward so dull of zeros on the scoreboard to be, on idea, should not. But to choose a favourite is difficult. Prediction: 1:1

“Zenith” (St.-Petersburg) — “Lokomotiv” (Moscow)

16.30. Saint-Petersburg. Stadium “Central” (68 134)

The total value of the players: 135 900 000 / 62 750 000

The last 5 matches of Lokomotiv in the Premier League: +3=0-2, 6:2

Factors of bookmakers: 1,75—3,10—5,10

Stream: “Match TV”, “Our football”

MK: In the Central match of the round, the opponents have no margin for error, so each of them needs to play on defense. The attacking potential of blue-white-blue is richer and more varied, but “Zenit”, as already mentioned above Spartak has problems with positional attacking actions. The hosts will certainly try to take the game to the flanks from the centre where the opponent are collected in a powerful fist Igor Denisov, Dmitry Tarasov, Manuel Fernandes and the Miranchuk brothers. If the team Roberto Mancini will be able to achieve, to get 3 points in the match with a neighbor in the first row of the table will be much easier, and at the forefront must come mastery of the player, who will entrust the place in the centre of the attack. In theory, the more relevant it is in this meeting at the forefront would be the emergence of Artem Dzuba.

As they say in such cases, the match will go to 3 the result, after the victory of each of the players is equally likely. In such hands, the most appropriate looks the bet on a tie. Not the most effective. Prediction: 1:1

“Krasnodar” (Krasnodar) — SKA (Khabarovsk)

19.00. Krasnodar. The Stadium “Krasnodar” (34 291)

The total value of the players: 80 000 000 / 9 600 000

Leaders: CSKA Moscow / Denis Dedechko

The last meeting in Krasnodar: 3:0

Total balance: +2=1-1, 7:3

The last 5 matches of FC Krasnodar in Premier League: +1=0-4, 5:7

The last 5 matches of SKA in the Premier League: +1=2-2, 6:10

Factors of bookmakers: 1,20—5,45—15,70

Stream: “Our football”

“MK”: Easy to predict which key will be to have this meeting. The ball will own basically the team of Igor Shalimov, and the festival will count on counterattacks. If the bulls catch his game, and Fedor Smolov will play at the level that allowed him to become the top scorer of the Premier League the last two seasons, the owners can not simply win, which is not tasted for more than a month, but also to defeat SKA.

The team of Alex Podolskogo in recent matches certainly lost one of the halves. The debutants of the Premier League can fall short both in the first and in the second half. If this happens, Krasnodar, count on points will be extremely difficult. Prediction: 3:0

October 30, Monday

Factors of bookmakers: 2,95—2,70—2,60

Stream: “Our football”

“MK”: “Ufa”, nil, “ruby” will not score. This forecast is on the surface and is confirmed by all statistical calculations. With equal probability, the opponents can create one, but not more than that. Prediction: 0:0

“Ahmad” (Grozny) — “Anzhi” (Makhachkala)

19.30. Terrible. “Akhmat-Arena” (30 597)

Factors of bookmakers: 1,60—3,50—5,30

Stream: “Our football”

MK: They look great in the last rounds, but offensively the team of Vadim Skripchenko has serious problems. The lack of confidence players, and they are not the highest performing skills. On the other hand, such opponents like Anji, is not a great sparring partner in the match which tries to switch to a new track, “Achmat” and can shoot. Prediction: 3:2


“The locomotive” “Zenith” — on 29 points. CSKA — 25. “Ural” — 22. “Spartak”, “Krasnodar” — in 21. “Ruby”, “Ufa” — 18. “Arsenal”, “Ahmad”, “Rostov” — for 17. “Amkar” — 16. “Dynamo”, “Tosno” — 14. SKA, Anji — 12.
