FC Krasnodar vs Rubin Kazan
Russia- Premier League
Date: Saturday, 10 August 2019
Kick-off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Krasnodar Stadium (Krasnodar).
FC Krasnodar have bounced back from their opening game stumble, and are on a three-game unbeaten run at the moment. The squad’s last clash away from home saw them hold the reigning champions Zenit St. Petersburg to a 1-1 draw, while their previous home game against Sochi finished in a 3-0 scoreline at the last blast of the whistle.
Rubin Kazan on the hand had their respective streak brought to an abrupt halt in their last matchup on home soil, where they were handed a 1-0 defeat by CSKA Moscow. The away side were certainly dismal in that clash and registered just three feeble shots on target in the entire game.
The visitors will have to raise the bar several notches if they are to salvage any points this weekend, as they travel to take on Krasnodar who admitted defeat just thrice on home soil last season.

FC Krasnodar vs Rubin Kazan Prediction
The hosts recorded a comfortable win in their last matchup at home and will be looking to build on that result in the clash on Saturday. The home team have scored seven goals so far, and have conceded no more than four in the process.
It also needs mentioning that Rubin Kazan have never beaten Krasnodar at this venue and that the hosts have failed to come out on top just once in their meetings.
Given Rubin Kazan’s poor away record against Krasnodar here, there is absolutely no way that the visitors will be able to walk away with three points in this one.
Five of the last seven goals that the hosts have scored have come after the restart. So, expect Krasnodar to be a lot more lively following the break, and to find the back of the net in the latter forty-five minutes.
