Krylia Sovetov (Samara)
Last season, the Samara-based club secured their place in the RPL World only in the final round by defeating Spartak Moscow at home. Now, Krylia Sovetov is experiencing their best moment in the past few years in terms of results, team composition, and quality of play. The Samara-based footballers have forced everyone this season to take them more seriously. Currently, Krylia Sovetov ranks 2nd in the RPL World leaderboard, ahead of Lokomotiv Moscow by 3 points.
Krasnodar, leading in the RPL World, is 3 points behind. In the RPL Cup's Path, Krylia Sovetov's performance is weaker. In 4 matches, Krylia Sovetov has only achieved 1 victory, earning 3 points against Baltika. Before that, Krylia Sovetov lost to Zenit, Akhmat, and Baltika. In their last 5 encounters, Krylia Sovetov hasn't lost, having successfully played against Krylia Sovetov, Baltika, Sochi, and Spartak. In the encounter against CSKA, the Samarans gathered 1 point.
The start of the 2023-2024 season did not go as planned for the Grozny-based club. Last season, Akhmat finished 5th, achieving a historic achievement for themselves, but now it is down to a fairly low 10th position. Akhmat went through a change of coaches, after which the results were somewhat improved, but a climb from the lower half of the leader board is yet to be seen, especially as the Grozny club hasn't won in its last 4 matches.
The last victory was on September 2nd, after which Akhmat drew against Krasnodar and Dynamo. Akhmat was left point-less in the match against Baltika. In the Russian Cup, Akhmat's performance is inconsistent, averaging one point per match. The Grozny club is in 3rd place, thanks to a victory over Krylia Sovetov and a penalty shoot-out loss against Zenit.
Krylia Sovetov and Akhmat have met 36 times in official matches. Akhmat won in 19 encounters, Krylia Sovetov secured 11 victories, and 6 confrontations ended in a draw.
Krylia Sovetov will take all 3 points. The club from Samara is currently in high spirits after a crushing victory over Spartak and hasn't lost in 5 consecutive matches, whereas Akhmat is experiencing the opposite situation. The club from Grozny still hasn't recovered from the season's initial flop and will likely save the main players for the championship, where it's important to gain points and move away from the relegation zone.
