Arsenal Tula vs Rubin Kazan
Russia – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 14 March 2020
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stadion Arsenal (Tula).
Leonid Slutsky’s men have been one of the worst teams in the competition this season, and the claim is justified by their inclusion in the relegation zone. The Gunsmiths are from the top tier (who also have a 100% unbeaten h2h record at home) and will be expected to put forth the better performance this weekend.

Arsenal Tula vs Rubin Kazan Prediction
The Gunsmiths were defeated 2-0 on the road the last match-day, by Orenburg. It put an end to their three-match winning run in the league, and this should motivate them to come back even stronger, and make amends for that loss.
Elsewhere, Slutsky’s men lost 0-1 at home against Samara. It was their ninth straight winless match-up in the league, and this streak could be considered an accurate indicator for the overall performance of the team this season.
At present, they are placed in the relegation zone, and since August, they have had a total of two wins. Keep note that one of these losses had come against a recently promoted squad. On top of that they have had a single win away from home in the 13 months.
On the other hand, the Gunsmiths are one of the best teams in the competition, and they hold a 100% unbeaten record at home in h2h clashes. Going on, teams at home have never lost an h2h encounter, and seven of the past nine such clashes saw the squads on the road failing to score.
To pile even more, excluding a single fixture, Slutsky’s men have not found the back of the net in any of their visits this past decade at the Stadion Arsenal. And finally, this season, Kazan have scored the least number of goals of all the teams in the contest as well.
Taking all these findings into consideration, it’s predicted that the hosts Arsenal Tula are about to deliver a win to nil this Saturday.
