In the 8th round of the Russian Premier League, Arsenal Tula and Rubin Kazan are going to face each other on Saturday afternoon.
After a very successful last season when they finished in the top half of the table, the hosts are performing variably at the start of the new campaign. They are sitting on the 11th spot, but in the last two matches home side managed to pick up four points.
Oleg Kononov’s side is playing very well in front of their fans and they suffered just one defeat in four occasions. Arsenal Tula have scored all their goals at home ground, while their defence allowed just two goals. They are not bad in the back and their forwards are doing a decent job
Rubin Kazan are two points ahead of their rivals and they’ve suffered just one defeat in the season so far. However, high number of draw matches prevented them of going above the 9th place on which they are currently sitting.
The visitors are in a pretty fine form as they haven’t lost in the last four matches. Dmitriy Poloz and the lads are having the same goal difference as their rivals and they are also putting fine defensive performances. After not too successful last season, the visitors want to finish in the top half of the table.
