Rubin Kazan vs Ufa
Russian Premier League
Date: Monday, 7th May 2018
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Kazan Arena (Kazan).
Rubin Kazan need a win to kill the relegation threat and they are keen to do it in their final home game of the season against Ufa on Monday evening.
Kazan has been in decent form since the winter break and picked up 3 wins and 4 draws from the 8 games losing once. This helped them to move 5 points above the relegation zone. Also, they are coming with confidence and momentum for Monday’s home fixture since they are unbeaten in the last five with 2 wins and 3 draws.
Ufa on the other hand have been blowing hot and cold in recent weeks. They started out well since winter break by picking 2 wins and a draw from three games. Since, they went on a barren run for four matches until last week’s narrow win against rock bottom side SKA Khabarovsk. Also, the team has not done a lot in road games, which all indicate towards a huge advantage for the home side.
Rubin Kazan vs Ufa: Head-to-head

Rubin Kazan vs Ufa: Predictions
We can back a home win in this contest since Kazan has been doing well in both their home and away matches recently. Their key players Sardar Azmoun, Ivelin Popov and Christian Noboa are in terrific form giving an extra edge in the attacking front. Meantime, Ufa are on a poor away form and lost 4 of their last 6 outings.
Another good option for this match is both teams to score since their previous 7 head-to-head meetings saw the same. Besides, Kazan scored 8 times in their last 4 home games and conceded 6 in return. While, Ufa netted at least once in 5 of their last 7 away games.
