AKM vs URY Dream11: Two teams going South will face each other when Akhmat Grozny host FC Ural in an important clash in the Russian Premier League this weekend. Both the teams are hard-pressed for a win, especially the hosts who are dangling over the bottom-placed PFC Sochi by one point. The Ural are without a win in the last two but will see this as a match to stop the winless run getting stretched by one more week.
Two out of the three wins for Grozny this season came in the first four weeks, and since then they have won just once in the following 11 league games. The problem is apparently on both ends of the pitch, with the goals coming in limited quantity while the defence has been too leaky to leave any impact at all. Things must shore up for Akhmat before it's too late.
Even though Ural have done relatively well compared to the next opponent, not everyone associated with the club would be happy at the results in the last couple of weeks.

Hosts: Akhmat Grozny
Visitors: FC Ural
Match Timing: November 08, Friday at 10: 00 PM
Venue: Akhmat-Arena, Russia
Odise Roshi: he has been quite a presence on the left side of the midfield. He can whip in a quality cross, and also has the habit of popping up with a goal or two.
Bernard Berisha: The 28-year-old is another midfielder who has been in good form for Akhmat this season. Must be in your team.
Andres Ponce: He can certainly do better and give Akhmat a better return in front of the goal. But with two goals in the last five league games, including in the last, the 22-year-old is certainly in a better form than at any point in the season.
Eric Bicalfi: Akhmat's leaky defence must be on guard for the whole 90 minutes, or Bicalfi is somebody who is more than capable of punishing even a tiny mistake.
