Analysis and forecast for the match of the 2nd round of the Russian Championship “Orenburg” – “Ural” (23.07.2022)

The new football season is gaining momentum. The second round of the Russian Premier League starts on July 22, and the next day the program will continue with three meetings. In one of them, at the Gazovik stadium in Orenburg, the local Orenburg and Yekaterinburg Ural will measure their strength. The starting whistle will sound at 17:30 Moscow time.

In the opposition of the first round of the competition, “Orenburg” was defeated by the strong “Wings of the Soviets” (2:4). In general, the club looked very nice. The players struck a lot of shots and even managed to open an account in the 31st minute of the meeting. A negative result followed due to the lack of a fortress in defense. Although, it is also worth noting the skill and cool implementation of the Samarans.

In a post-match interview, the sports director of the Orenburg club, Dmitry Andreev, described the defeat of his team as a normal process. Andreev noted that Orenburg spent two seasons in the First League. In view of what needs to be restructured and adapted to the championship of Russia. However, in our opinion, the RPL newcomer is not as simple as it seems.

In transitional matches with Ufa, which significantly improved at the end of last season, the Orenburgers have already proved their worth and readiness to fight with clubs from the RPL on an equal footing. At first they played with Ufa in a draw (2:2). And then, already on the road, they won (2:1). It is curious that even the best scorer of the last RPL draw, Hamid Agalarov, remained out of work. Together with Ufa, he flew to the FNL.

Since then Orenburg has changed a lot. Many high-quality newcomers joined the team – Brian Mansilla, Himmi Vilches, Stepan Oganesyan, Paraguayan forward Diego Acosta and, finally, promising Argentinean Lucas Vera. However, Marcel Lichka still remains at the post of head coach. It seems that in the near future he will find a way to integrate newcomers into his own game model.

In the end, under the leadership of Lichka, the Orenburgers have been demonstrating a cool level of play for several years now. As we remember, according to the results of the season before last, they took second place in the standings of the First League and were supposed to get a ticket to the RPL. But due to the lack of a license, Nizhny Novgorod had to give way to the Russian championship.

“Ural”, in turn, lost to CSKA (0:2) in the first round match of the current championship of Russia. The meeting was remembered by the total advantage of the army. They confidently controlled the course of the game and tirelessly stormed the gates of the Urals. In the first half alone, they delivered 22 shots (including those blocked). Thus, they set a RPL record for this indicator. I’m surprised they didn’t score more.

The Urals came to their senses only in the second half. They created several dangerous moments at the gates of Igor Akinfeev, but failed to score. However, the level of the opponent was extremely high. What we managed to add during the match is already an impressive achievement for which Igor Shalimov can be praised.

Arshavin named the player who will leave Zenit in the summer.

For the most part, thanks to the efforts of Shalimov, the club from Yekaterinburg last season established itself as one of the most uncompromising RPL teams. The final cut was especially cool. Over the past five meetings in the championship of Russia, Ural suffered only one defeat – from Spartak, who gained momentum (1:3).

In other meetings, he won victories, pleased with the performance. First he defeated Ufa (2:1), then Dynamo (3:2), Rubin (3:0) and Tula Arsenal (2:1). The Orange-and-Blacks haven’t changed much in the off-season. Rodina Moscow striker Alexei Kashtanov, Rubin midfielder Igor Konovalov and several other players joined the team.

There are also several losses. Left the team Dominic Dinga and Andrey Panyukov. Pavel Pogrebnyak also decided to end his career. In the upcoming match, it is difficult to identify a favorite, since both teams are just starting to join the mainstream of the current Russian championship draw. Who adapts faster remains a mystery.

A good option for betting, in our opinion, looks like “both teams to score” at odds of 1.97. In the last three matches with teams from the RPL, the Orenburgers scored, but they themselves did not leave the field without a missed ball. Obviously, they have excellent offensive potential, but so far they are experiencing problems of a defensive nature.




“Kairat” – “Kishvarda”. Even better without Kurban Berdyev

We believe that the Yekaterinburg team, who improved a lot in the course of the meeting with CSKA, will be able to upset the goalkeeper of the Orenburg team a couple of times. If a strong Moscow club had several excellent chances to score, then they will definitely be able to find an approach to the gates of the future opponent. In addition, at the end of last season, they pleased with the performance. Let’s check the goals from both sides.

Forecast and bets for the match RPL “Orenburg” – “Ural” on July 23, 2022

“Orenburg” has a cool attack, in each of the last three matches with teams from the RPL scored two goals. In the upcoming game, which will be held at the Gazovik stadium, the Orenburg residents will surely be able to distinguish themselves. However, it is also unlikely that they will be able to keep their gates intact. Defensively, not everything is in order. “Ural” was close to a goal against CSKA and gave a cool, high-scoring finish segment at the end of the last draw of the Russian championship. I think he can make a difference too. We are waiting for the heads.

Bid: both will score at odds of 1.97.

Pinyaev commented on the hospitalization incident for the first time.

Gajic: CSKA made me feel old.

Mostovoy told why there is no interest in Ozdoev in the RPL.

President of Barcelona: We have returned the club to the elite of football.
