Both teams are preparing for their 11th Premier League match. The latest results give insight into their possible game strategies. Akhmat shows a fairly stable form, having won 3 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses in the last 10 matches and gaining 12 points. But Rubin, on the contrary, is experiencing some difficulties, gaining only 9 points with 2 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses. Considering that both teams have played 10 matches in the championship, fatigue may play a role, but since the teams played their last matches about a week ago, this should not be a determining factor.
Analyzing the matches, it can be noted that Akhmat’s last game against Dynamo was difficult, as can be seen from the xG and ball possession indicators. The game with Baltika, although it dominated in shots, did not bring victory. However, they have shown an ability to score against teams like Zenit and Krasnodar, which suggests they can rise to the occasion. Rubin has been going through hard times lately, facing such strong opponents as Krasnodar and Zenit.
The statistics of recent meetings speak in favor of Rubin, who won two of the last five meetings with Akhmat, and ended in draws in two. This could be Rubin's psychological advantage.
As for game indicators, both teams look aggressive, with Akhmat having a slight advantage in shots on goal. Rubin has more possession of the ball, which often indicates Akhmat's desire to dictate the pace of the game.
An analysis of the latest matches between Akhmat and Rubin suggests their penchant for aggressive play. Akhmat in his last matches demonstrated a constant ability to score even against such formidable teams as Zenit and Krasnodar. On the contrary, Rubin, despite all the failures, demonstrates the ability to find the goal. In addition, in the history of their meetings there is a tendency when, as a rule, both teams score. Given these patterns and taking into account their tendency to attack in recent matches, betting on BTTS is likely to be profitable.
If you delve into the dynamics of the playing schemes of Akhmat and Rubin, then both clubs demonstrate a significant attacking orientation. This attacking roll, as recent matches have shown, often results in numerous corners. The teams' penchant for pressing, as well as their previous individual and goal statistics, suggest that the match will be rife with corners. Therefore, betting on total corners over 9.5, given the tempting odds, represents a promising balance of risk and potential reward.
This bet offers an attractive balance of risk and reward. The teams' playing styles, combined with their historical penchant for corners, position this bet as an interesting bet with good odds, making it the best bet in this scenario.
