Rubin Kazan vs Spartak Moscow Prediction
Rubin Kazan has won just two of their recent five home matches in the campaign. Since the host has dropped points three times in their last five attempts, they will not have much use of the ground advantage in the middle.
On the contrary, Spartak Moscow has lost only one of their last five outings in the league. Besides, the visitor has lost none of their last eight visits to this venue since 2014. Hence, the away team will have an edge over the host in the fixture.
