Fayzkand vs. Istaravshan Tajikistan Higher League

Surprisingly, Fayzkand has been the most successful of the three clubs promoted to the Tajikistan Higher League this season. So the prospect of bottom-of-the-table Istarvshan coming to town may not be too frightening for manager Tokhir Muminov and his players.

But the visitors will be desperate to get its season going after three straight defeats. Can this weekend be a turning point? Find out my perspective in this Fayzkand vs. Istaravshan betting preview.

It is possibly surprising how much of a favorite BetOnline makes Fayzkand here. But considering the form of both teams in the three games previously, the bookmaker probably gets it just about right. Istaravshan will be up for picking up its first points of the season, though, so the draw might be a good bet if that is the case.

Match Preview

After beating Regar-TadAZ the week before, the goalless draw with Dushanbe-83 last weekend was disappointing for Fayzkand. But it did continue its unbeaten start to the season. Two of the three games have been against fellow promoted sides, though, so the jury is still out on whether this is a club that can stay around the top of the league.

That draw didn’t really have any redeeming features, but if the Istaravshan players are still down after their thrashing at the weekend, then Fayzkand might be able to keep its remarkable run going.

That is really the big question over how this game will go. It is now three straight defeats for Istaravshan this season. Those games may have been against some of the better teams in the league, but a lot of goals have been conceded as well. Even Dushanbe-83, who let in seven against Istiklol on the opening day of the season, has shipped fewer.

Nothing is going right for the League Cup winners, though, and it is only the performances and goals of main man Ilhom Baratov that has kept this season from being a total disaster so far. It is time for the rest of the squad to step up and do their bit now.

Fayzkand vs. Istaravshan Prediction and Pick

  • Fayzkand to Win

Fayzkand has been fortunate with its fixtures up until now but has been able to deal with whatever has come its way successfully. I think that form will continue here, and a home win will pile even further misery on Istaravshan as it fails to get itself out of its current situation.
