Sergei Semak’s men started the domestic campaign on a good note by bagging back-to-back wins over Arsenal Tula and the newly promoted Yenisey.

But the real test was on the midweek when they travelled to Minsk for the Europa League qualifying fixture. The 4-0 first leg defeat means that the reverse at home four days after Monday is a match they play to restore some pride.

Rubin Kazan had made a decent start to their league campaign as well. Last week, they drew Dinamo Moscow 1-1 before a 2-1 win against strong Krasnodar on matchday 1.

Rubin Kazan vs Zenit Head-to-head

  • Zenit are unbeaten in the last 9 league games against Kazan, 7 wins and 2 draws.
  • The corresponding fixture of last season was a goal-less draw.
  • Before the 0-0 draw last season, Kazan lost three games on the bounce to Zenit.
  • Overall record at home for Kazan against Zenit in Russian Premier League is 5 wins, 5 draws and 6 losses from 16 games.

Rubin Kazan vs Zenit Prediction

Sergei Semak is under fire after the humiliation at Minsk and the last thing is want is to drop points against a team that finished near relegation waters last season. Thus, expect Zenit to bring their full strength eleven to Kazan.

Since this is a fixture dominated by Zenit over the years and Kazan are nowhere near what they used to be in the past two seasons, our money is on an away win.
