Rubin Kazan vs CSKA Moscow
Russia – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 25 August 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: Kazan Arena (Kazan).
Rubin Kazan and CSKA Moscow are going to face each other in the fifth round of the Russian Premier League.
After opening their campaign with a victory over Krasnodar, the hosts haven’t celebrated a win in the following three matches. However, they’ve lost just once so far and they have five points on their account.
Kurban Berdyev’s side has been playing pretty tight as they haven’t scored nor conceded too many goals. Rubin Kazan had an average campaign last season as they finished in the middle of the table, and this time they want to snatch the place in the top half on the standings.
CSKA Moscow managed to snatch the Champions League spot in the final round of the last season and finish as the runners-up being two points behind Lokomotiv Moscow. They had a very good finish as they celebrated four times in the final five rounds.
However, Abel Hernandez and the lads cannot be proud of their new start as they have already spilled too many points.
The visitors have the same record as Rubin Kazan and they booked their first win in the latest round against Arsenal Tula.
CSKA Moscow will need to get back on winning track as soon as possible if they want to challenge the top of the table.
Rubin Kazan vs CSKA Moscow: Head-to-head
CSKA Moscow are enjoying a good run against their rivals as they managed to beat them six times in the last seven occasions. Their encounters are usually low scoring ones and the crowd is not able to enjoy too many goals.
Rubin Kazan vs CSKA Moscow: Prediction
Both sides are playing pretty tight and another close match is expected here. Since the visitors are not at their optimal level, Rubin Kazan might search for their chance to remain undefeated in this one, so we are going with a draw in this match.
These two teams haven’t been involved in too efficient matches lately and we should expect to see another low scoring one. It is very probable that in this one we are going to see two goals in total at most.
