Trabzonspor vs Rostov by Mudhara_9er

The hosts have made alot of ambitious signings, new players and new coach, Cardozo a well known striker with goals in his boots. They are favourites to win this game but this will be their first real competitive match this season, the new side has had two games to prepare for tonight's fixture, drawing against Lokomotiv and losing to Køln. The teams defence has not been solid in these two games, giving away four goals, this is a sign of the new coach still trying to find his best combination and the defence still getting into gear.


Rostov on the other hand have played 5 competitive games in which they lost four and drew one, this is a very bad start to the season at first look, but then you look at the opposition, CSKA, Dynamo and Lokamotiv Moscow all top teams in the Russian league !! In all these games against the big teams Rostov have managed to score, actually they've scored in four of the five games. The opposition they have played against is at least as good Trabzonspor if not better !!


Rostov are in the relegation zone but they will start playing teams at their level soon, so not much should be taken from the stats so far, they have no big ambitions apart from survival, so they will take the European League qualifier serious enough and hope they can cash in on some bonuses, this team know thy are up against a good team and that they are massive underdogs to go through so they will play with no pressure and only try they best to achieve a good result, the pressure is all on the hosts shoulders!!


Tonight they play against a team with very big ambitions and a lot of changes, a team that has not had the best start according to preseason, a team that has yet to play a competitve game!!


Trabzonspor have a better team on paper but the team is not at the same level as Rostov, when it comes to competitive matches played, this doesn't take away the fact that they are favourites but is the reason to why the odds are 1.7 and not closer to 1.4!!


Trabzonspor have the team to get the result and this game means more to them but because it is their first competitive game against a team that has played against teams of great quality i believe Trabzonspor will make a mistake or two in the defence which Rostov will take advantage of!!


Cardozo and co have match winning players so the win shouldn't be a problem to win but the lack competitive game time can prove to threaten what looks like a banker bet on paper that is why, i will go for the more appealing odds 4.33, in a bet that has just as much risk as the 1.7 for a home victory.


Players can make a team look great but its the team chemistry and match fitness that wins games( who had seen Utd lose Swansea )


Good luckpin
