Rubin Kazan vs Orenburg
Russia – Premier League
Date: Friday, 3rd May 2019
Kick-off at 14.30 UK/ 15.30 CET
Venue: Kazan Arena (Kazan).
Orenburg has an opening to the final European spot in the league table, as Spartak Moscow seems like having a tough time in the last few fixtures. With four more match-days to go, the team needs to overcome a deficit of just four points, and importantly, they can mathematically avoid relegation by one more win.
Kazan is in a curious position, as they are still wary of the exit threat, and they do have a shot at making Europe. They are winless in their last five games, and hopes for a change in that situation, considering they are at home this weekend.

Rubin Kazan vs FC Orenburg Prediction
Kazan is winless in their last nine games, and their last official win came two months back, while the one before that was in December. At home, the team has recorded a single official win in the last eight months. They have also never won at home against Orenburg.
Orenburg, meanwhile, was unbeaten in 11 of their last 15 matches, and in 10 of their last 14 on the road. They also won the last two encounters against Rubin. Moreover, Orenburg has a good opportunity to make the playoffs, and with nothing to lose, they will go for it, especially since they are taking on a team bad in form.
Going on, Kazan failed to score in seven of their last eleven home ties and recorded just two goals from their last seven appearances at home. They have also never scored at home against Orenburg, and 100% of h2h ties had under 2.5 goals.
As such, expect a low-scoring tie, and most probably, Kazan will fail to score. Count on the visitors to take advantage of this situation, and it’s extremely unlikely that they will lose.
