    Where: Gazovik Stadium

    ORN vs SO Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:

    FC Orenburg may be propping up the table, but they have a reason to feel good about their chances in the very next game. For they have scored five times in the first five games, with their defense being the only reason robbing them of at least a win.

    We expect the hosts to improve that statistic in the next game as the opponents are without a goal in the 2019 Russian Premier League season so far.

    However, the visitors, having forced a 0-0 draw away from home against the mighty CSKA Moscow, have in them to come out with a win from Gazovik Stadium.

    Team News:


    • Thirty-year-old right-back Andrei Malykh remains sidelined with an Achilles tendon injury.
    • Edi Gutliv, Georgi Zotov and Nikita Malyarov are both doubtful and will be monitored before the game, while
    • Head coach Vladimir Fedotov could make changes to his starting 11.
    • If Edi Gutliv is not fit to start, Saveli Kozlov is likely to come in what should be a 3-man backline.
    • Đorđe Despotović is fit now and may start the match ahead of Andrea Chukanov.
    • Vadim Afonin may be named as a replacement for Nikita Malyarov if the latter fails to recover from the knock.

    PFC Sochi:

    • Maksim Barsov is the only player injured for PFC Sochi at the moment.
    • PFC Sochi’s splurge in the transfer market continues to swell as they signed Anton Zabolotny from FC Zenit. The 28-year-old forward is in contention to lead the line for his new club.
    • While defender Valery Pochivalin has left the club for FNL side FC Khimki this week.Ivan Miladinovic faces a long ban after breaking Fyodor Chalov’s nose last weekend. Though any decision regarding the suspension will be taken next Wednesday, so the 25-year-old is available for selection here.

    ORN vs SO Dream11 Grand League Picks for Captains & Vice-Captains:

    Joel Fameyeh: The 22-year-old Ghanian broke his duck with two goals in the last game. Nothing can give a striker more confidence than the goals, and the young Ghanian will definitely be looking to add more to his tally here.

    Season stats:

    • Games: 04
    • Goals: 02
    • Passing%: 79
    • Man of the Match: 01

    Đorđe Despotović: Orenburg’s No-9 is the team’s main player as far as the scoring is concerned. The 27-year-old Serbian is a good option for the captain in your Dream11 teams.

    Season stats:

    • Games: 05
    • Minutes: 450
    • Goals: 02
    • Passing%: 70

    Sergey Terekhov: Much of Orenburg’s struggles are down to the inconsistency shown by their creative players this season, and amongst them is the 29-year-old Sergey Terekhov. He can certainly play better than he did in the first five games of the season.

    Anton Zabolotny: Not only PFC Sochi have failed to win in the first five games, but they are without goals as well. But the club is making noise in the transfer market, adding a host of new players to their roster, including striker Anton Zabolotny.

    Season stats:

    • Games: 03
    • Goals: 01
    • Passing%: 66

    ORN vs SO Dream11 Grand League Teams:

    • With both the teams struggling, the match could go either way.
    • But the hosts, FC Orenburg, looks a good bet for the attacking players, while the visitors’ defense have improved in the last two matches.
    • We would suggest a 6-5 combination in favor of the hosts, with Orenburg’s attacking players swarming up the Dream11 fantasy teams.
