Altyn Asyr vs. Ahal Turkmenistan Yokary Liga

This rescheduled game looks like being a fascinating encounter between the side that has dominated the Yokary Liga for the past six years and the team that has taken the league by storm this season. 

For Altyn Asyr, it is almost a must-win game, as allowing Ahal to pull further away even at this early stage could turn out to give the champions too much to do later in the year.

Let’s get into some odds in this Altyn Asyr vs. Ahal betting preview.

Altyn Asyr to Win-211
The Draw+350
Ahal to Win+400

Betway is expecting Altyn Asyr to return to the form of the past few seasons here and pick up some much-needed points. The bookmaker makes the home side the favorite, but it is Ahal who has impressed this year. The odds for the draw or an away win look too good to pass up.

Match Preview

For a side that ran away with the league title last season, as it has done for a while now, Altyn Asyr’s results this year have been hard to believe. A draw on the opening day with Sagadam may not sound terrible, but it has set the tone for the following rounds. Just one win in four games is not what we have come to expect from the Ashgabat club.

The latest draw summed up the way the campaign has gone so far. With Ahal running away at the top of the table, victory over Energetik was expected. But a stoppage time own goal from Rovshengeldy Halmamedov gave the Mary club a share of the points and kept Altyn Asyr down in fourth place.

That’s a lot further down the table than Ahal, who is yet to even concede a goal in its four games. It needed a penalty from Elman Tagayev for the second successive game to narrowly beat a Kopetdag side that has started the season well, but it was another three points to add to the 100% record.

Ahal has finished in the runners-up spot behind Altyn Asyr for the past three years running and looks like it has had enough of being second best. The three cup triumphs in the past seven years may have placated the club’s fans, but it looks like a real title challenge has been set in motion this season.

Altyn Asyr vs. Ahal Prediction and Pick

  • Ahal to Win

Altyn Asyr does not usually lose too many games in a season, and to be fair, it is actually still unbeaten this year. But just one win in four is not a good record. Ahal has been invincible so far, scoring the most goals in the league even though it has played one game fewer than the majority of the other clubs. The confidence is all with the visitors here, and the odds for an Ahal victory look far too tempting.
