Venue: Stadion Arsenal, Tula.
Arsenal Tula welcome Ural in the sixth round of Russian Premier league. Both sides played on Wednesday – the hosts fell in Moscow to Spartak, while Ural held of Zenit St. Petersburg on the home turf.
The home side is struggling in the top tier this season. Four defeats out of five matches is an underwhelming result for any team. They are now on a three-game losing streak with the offensive woes on their mind. Arsenal Tula are yet to score more than a goal per game this season.
Buranov and Griglava are out due to injuries.
Ural have shown an excellent performance as they hosted Zenit, the title contenders. They scored first against Mancini’s men and they had the upper hand in the first 45 minutes. However, Zenit’s quality was crucial in the second half when the guests from St. Petersburg found the equalizer. In the last 20 minutes, both teams could turn the game in their favor although Zenit were slightly closer to a victory.
Ural have drawn four out of the initial five games in Premier League and they could easily register another stalemate in Tula.
