Only two teams are yet to win in the 2019-20 Russian Premier League, and one of them is PFC Sochi, who are currently propping up the table.
It’s too early in the season to call the normal games six-pointer, but since Sochi are at home against FC Ufa, a team which shrugged off the relegation in the playoffs last season, the stakes run high for the hosts.
The room to make mistakes is little, the leverage that the manager Aleksandr Tochilin may feel has been trimmed down to a scratch by the three defeats in the opening three games, and you can feel that he may have to fall on his sword sooner than expected if his team fails to collect a win in this game.
The opponent, FC Ufa, is coming into this match with relatively low pressure on their shoulder after snapping their losing run in the last game.
The Russian Premier League match will be played between PFC Sochi and FC Ufa at Yuexiushan Stadium, in Guangzhou, China. The ground has a capacity of 18,000.
The game will start at 05:05 PM (IST), on Saturday, July 20.
