Khimki - detailed statistics and predictions for the upcoming matches

The official “birthday” of the team is January 30, 1997, but in fact Khimki appeared a few months before, they just played at an amateur level, managing, at the same time, to even win regional trophies.

In 1996, the two city teams Novator and Rodina decided to unite - and this is how Khimki turned out, which immediately showed up for the Russian championship among amateur football teams.

In the central zone "Podmoskovye A" the team won, success was accompanied by Khimki and on the final bullet in Ulyanovsk, after which - the Moscow region football club of amateurs got the right to take shape as a professional and enter the Third League.The team “passed” the third League in a year, taking second place in the third Moscow-Moscow Region zone under the leadership of Vladimir Shtapov, but in the second division Khimki was delayed by as much as three years, having risen in class by a fluke.

In the 2000 season, Khimki was headed by Viktor Papaev, a former footballer of Moscow Spartak, and the team, led by a new coach, immediately managed to break into the joints for the right to play in the First League, but alas, they lost to Severstal on aggregate 0:1 and 3:2.

However, a couple of days later the team from Cherepovets refused to participate in the First League, so Khimki went there.

A young club from the Moscow region cannot boast of serious regalia, for 25 years of its existence it has changed under four dozen coaches, and several times it could completely disappear from the football map of Russia, but Khimki was constantly lucky.

The club from Khimki played at the small and old Novator stadium until 2008, when the Khimki Arena for 18,636 people was built for 2 billion rubles. At different times, not only Khimki, but also the Moscow Dynamo and CSKA played in the same arena, but since the 2018/19 season, the Moscow Region team has become the only one for whom the stadium has remained home.

Khimki spent only four seasons in the Premier League in all its 25 years of life, and the highest achievement, in addition to two Russian Cup finals, can be considered eighth place in the 2020/21 season.

That season, the Moscow Region club became the only one of all the tournament participants who, during the championship, never went down in the standings below their current place.

From the 1st to the 8th round, Khimki were in 15th place, then six more rounds - in 14th, and already from the second half of the season the team started to grow slowly but surely - Khimki stayed in eighth place in the last six rounds ...

In addition to the best result in the RPL in history, fans of Khimki will remember that season with a cheery defeat from Krasnodar with a score of 2:7 - this game became the most productive of the season, and the first half ended with a score of 2: 3 and did not bode well.

With Sergey Yuran, Khimki reached the final of the Russian Cup, and also rose to the RPL, despite behind-the-scenes rumors that the team's management allegedly did not really want to improve in class. One cannot but recall the Ukrainian Pavel Yakovenko, who led Khimki to the first ever Russian Cup final, bringing a number of famous football players to the team.

Andrei Tikhonov not only made a lot of dust in Spartak, but also became the main scorer in the history of the Moscow Region club, scoring 48 goals in 149 matches. Of the current players in Khimki, Arshak Koryan can be distinguished, who has 15 goals in 82 games as of May 2021.
