FC Dordoi go into tomorrow’s penultimate league game against second place Alga knowing a win would secure them their 12th Premier League title. Victory would give the Bishkek giants an unassailable lead at the top of the table and a vastly superior goal difference.
Should Alga earn a surprise win however they would go into the final round of fixtures next Tuesday level on points with FC Dordoi and a tricky final game against Neftchi who are themselves waiting on a Dordoi slip up.
Tomorrow, Neftchi face an Abdish-Ata side who have gone off the boil in recent weeks with three draws in their last five games, a run that has seen the Kant side slip down to fourth, effectively ending their own title challenge.
Dordoi coach Alexandr Krestinin will be hoping his team can find the free flowing football which had seen them crush Kaganat 8-1 a couple of weeks ago. Against Abdish-Ata and Alay in their last two games they have struggled against motivated opponents and tomorrow’s game won’t be any easier. Alga are known for keeping things tight at both ends, their 12 games have produced a total of 20 goals, and Krestinin will want his top scorer Mirlan Murzaev to rediscover the form that has seen him score eight goals this season.
1. Dordoi 12 9 2 1 29-8 29
2. Alga 12 8 2 2 13-7 26
3. Neftchi 12 8 1 3 22-13 25
