Analysis and forecast for the 1/32 final match of the Russian Cup “Ufa” – “Torpedo” (09/26/2023)
The RPL season is in full swing, but there are many interesting matches in the Russian Cup. The 1/32 finals of the tournament will be played on September 26. Local team Ufa and Torpedo Moscow will compete at the Neftyanik stadium in Ufa. The kick-off is scheduled for 16:30 Moscow time.
Even the penultimate season, Ufa played in the RPL. She was hit by a terrible recession. The team slides downward, becoming more and more vulnerable with each match. According to the results of the last First League, they took 16th place and were relegated to the Second League.
And even here the residents of Ufa have a hard time. In 11 games of the season they only achieved four victories, and most of them were obtained in meetings with teams located in the relegation zone: Irtysh (2-0), Spartak Kostroma (2-0) and Rotor (3-0 ). ). The city’s residents also defeated Murom (3:0) and drew three times.
It was not without luck that Ufa made it this far in the Russian Cup. In the previous stages of the tournament they beat Nosta (0-0, 3-1 on penalties) and Volga (0-0, 2-0 on penalties). The main protagonist of both matches was 28-year-old goalkeeper Oleg Baklov, who played for Ural last season.
In total, Baklov missed seven of eight penalties. The goalkeeper saved six and the seventh hit the crossbar. It is also worth noting that at the time of the missed ball, he guessed the direction of the shot, but came up slightly short. With such a talented goalkeeper, Ufa has reason to expect a series of penalty kicks.
Torpedo, like Ufa, went downhill at the end of last season. They took last place in the RPL standings and were relegated to the First League. But, unlike the residents of Ufa, automakers are actively fighting to return to the elite division.
Josep Clotet’s team occupies sixth place in the standings. The difference with fourth-place Akron is just one point. In 11 meetings, the Muscovites lost only to Sokol (0:1), Alania (0:2), Rodina (0:2) and KAMAZ (0:1), who started the season brilliantly. They suffered three of their four defeats on the road.
The automobile factory also drew with Chernomorets (1-1) and Tula Arsenal (1-1). They beat Dinamo Makhachkala (2-0), Khimki (2-1), Neftekhimik (2-1), Akron (1-0) and Yenisei (1-0). The only bad thing is that Torpedo rarely scores. During this period he scored only 10 goals and suffered the same number.
This upsets Cloth. After the loss to KAMAZ, he said that Torpedo players should demand more of themselves. The coach highlighted that the fans expect the team to play better and score more, but the reality is that it is the center backs who score the goals, not the forwards.
However, Clotet himself is somewhat to blame for this. The effectiveness of the forwards largely depends on the midfield, and the Spanish specialist’s midfield, frankly, works poorly. Therefore, we suggest taking P2 + TM 3.5 goals for an odds of 3.45.
Torpedo has trouble traveling. And how it will be organized for the Russian Cup remains a mystery. This season the automakers did not play a single game in the tournament. However, despite the existing problems, they look like favorites for the next match.
At the same time, we do not expect a large number of goals scored. In 11 matches in the First League, the Ufa team scored 14 goals and lost eight. The statistics look pretty good, but 8 of 14 goals came against teams in the relegation zone. It is unlikely that the “citizens” will be able to score more than one goal against the car manufacturers.
Predictions and bets for the Russian Cup match “Ufa” – “Torpedo” on September 26, 2023
Ufa continues to retreat. It loses competition even against Second League teams. It is extremely unlikely that the citizens will be able to defeat Torpedo. Perhaps they can reach the penalty shootout again, counting on the talent of Baklov. But I still believe more in the victory of the automakers. Despite some problems, including performance, they beat the leaders of the First League and are fighting to return to the RPL.
Tender: Torpedo wins and the total is less than 3.5 goals in 3.45.
