Anzhi Makhachkala is hosting Tromso in UEFA Europa League Group K match. Both of these clubs sit at the bottom of Group K, earning one draw and one loss. A win could move either club into second place is Sheriff falls to Tottenham as expected, or draws for that matter.
These two clubs have never played one another before. In fact it is Anzhi’s first meeting with a Norwegian club and Tromso’s first meeting with a Russian opponent. In UEFA competition, Russian sides have had the upper hand against Norwegian clubs. Russian’s have won 13, tied twice, and lost four times in 19 games. The Russian sides are on a seven game win streak over Norwegian competition, and the last nine games in Russia.
Anzhi is still looking for their first goal of the tournament. They lost to Tottenham 2-0 before getting an 0-0 draw against Sheriff. In fact, that scoreless stretches back four European games without a goal and five European games without a win.
