Rubin Kazan vs FC Tambov
Russia – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 30 August 2020
Kick-Off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Ak Bars Arena (Kazan).
The Red Greens had a disappointing campaign last season. Credit to a series of defeats they finished 10th in the table. After five matches in this new season, they have two wins and defeats each. After a shaky start, they are currently on a two-match winning streak. After winning the title in 2009, they have not come close in any of the following seasons. But at present, they are a long way below the top.
Tambov is a baby in terms of experience compared to the opponent they will be facing this Sunday. Apart from the win over relegation placed Khimki, they have lost all four remaining games so far. After Ufa, they have conceded the most number of goals in the season so far. The transfer ban was a challenge for them last season.
Rubin Kazan vs FC Tambov: Head-to-head (h2h)

- Kazan has a win and a draw in the two head to head games with the Wolves.
Rubin Kazan vs FC Tambov: Prediction
Tambov was lucky last season as the league management decided to cancel the relegation playoffs. But it seems they have not learned from their mistakes and have been losing back to back games this year too. In the present form, they cannot challenge the in-form Rubin Kazan. Also, the home side has not lost any competitive fixtures against these rivals. So it is very clear that the hosts are favorites to get all three points.
Even though the away team is on a losing streak on the road, they could score a goal. In the last two away fixtures, they broke through some top defenses in the country. They scored against CSKA Moscow and Former Champions Zenit St. Petersburg. On the other hand, the Red Greens has conceded in back to back home matches too. So I am backing the home team to win with goals at both ends of the field.
Rubin Kazan vs FC Tambov: Betting Tips
