Nizhny Novgorod vs Sochi Prediction 26 July 2021

Tournament: Russian Premier League
Location: Nizhny Novgorod Stadium
Match date: 07/26/2021 at 16:00

In the first round of the RPL, the newcomers of the elite Nizhny Novgorod will test their strength in a match with participants of the European cups Sochi.

Nizhny Novgorod finished the last season in the third position with 88 points and a goal difference of 67:28. Then the Blue and Whites had, like, the best defense, but their attack was not the brightest. It should be noted that at the training camp Kerzhakov's men were weaker than Rubin (1:2, 0:3) and CSKA (1:2).

The fifth place in the 2020/21 campaign was made possible by a powerful ending. In its course, Sochi scored 13 points out of fifteen possible. Now the Snow Leopards have already tasted the European Cup, beating Kesla 3:0 in the Conference League. And before that, they had five control sparring, scoring two wins in three defeats.

In our opinion, Sochi are prepared for the season a little better, as they were forced to get in shape from the start on the continental arena. But coping with a well-organized defense of Nizhny Novgorod is not an easy task, so we predict the total to be low.
