PFC Sochi vs Rubin Kazan
Russia – Premier League
Date: Tuesday, 18 August 2020
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Fisht Olympic Stadium.
Both teams are going through a dry spell at the moment, and are looking for their first win in the league this season. However, the Leopards seem to be the better of the two, due to their impressive record at home, and their 100% unbeaten streak over this opponent.
For the reasons, they are expected to dominate proceedings on the pitch this Tuesday.
Still, Vladimir Fedotov’s men lack experience in this top flight, and that could be exploited by the desperate Stones.
As such, we could anticipate goals from both teams.
Sochi vs Rubin Kazan: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest clash had ended in a 1-1 draw between the two.
- The Leopards have a 100% unbeaten record against this opponent.
- They have never once failed to score against this rival.
- Both teams have scored goals in all clashes at this stadium so far.
Sochi vs Rubin Kazan: Prediction
Leonid Slutsky’s men are winless in their last six games in a row, and remained so in 16 of their preceding 19 road trips. They also are yet to record their first h2h win against Fedotov’s men.
On the other hand, the latter are unbeaten in their past seven appearances at home, and of these five were wins. Moreover, they have lost just one game here in the preceding eight months.
As such, expect Sochi to avoid a loss at the very least this game week.
Going on though, the Stones are much more experienced in the Premier League, as their counterparts were promoted to this competition just a season before. On top of that, Slutsky’s men also are invincible on the road since September of last year.
Likely, expect them to score at least once against the hosts.
