CSKA Moscow vs Rubin Kazan’
Russian Premier League
Date: Sunday, 6th August 2017
Kick off at 15:30 UK/ 16:30 CET
Venue: VEB Arena.
CSKA Moscow have already dropped the ball against the first serious rival in the new Premier League season and they can’t afford a slip up in what could be a tricky fixture for them this Sunday against Rubin Kazan’ at VEB Arena.
The hosts have, however, managed to rebound successfully after dropping points to Lokomotiv Moscow on the home patch.
The team led by Viktor Goncharenko has won three games since the mentioned loss without conceding a single goal during the run.
This includes two Champions League wins over AEK Athens which earned Armeitsy playoffs legs with Young Boys for the place in the group stage of the elite competition.
Rubin were off to a horrific kick off to the new season under a familiar foe as the club’s legend Kurban Berdyev took charge this summer.
Tatars did have a tricky schedule in the early stages of the league competition as they played the likes of Krasnodar and Zenit before snatching the first win of the campaign last weekend against Arsenal Tula on the home patch.
CSKA Moscow vs Rubin Kazan’: Head to head
Rubin have failed to find the back of the net in each of their last five meetings with Armeitsy who have generally been much more successful side.
CSKA won 12 of 16 clashes with the Tatars at VEB Arena and we must see them as clear favourites to continue this trend in the fourth round of the new Premier League term.
CSKA Moscow vs Rubin Kazan’: Prediction
Rubin have shown plenty of holds at the back against top quality teams such as Krasnodar and Zenit and we can easily see Armeitsy netting at least two goals on Sunday.
