FC Tambov vs Arsenal Tula
Russia – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 4 August 2019
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Spartak Stadium (Tambov).
The Premier League debutants got off to a miserable start in their campaign, with back to back losses in their last two trips on the road. However, they turned things around in their first game on home soil, against Spartak Moscow, to clinch a very convincing 2-0 victory at the end of the clash.
The squad certainly impressed on both fronts in that game and recorded their first clean sheet of the season in the process.
Arsenal Tula, on the other hand, will be coming into the tie this weekend on the back of a 3-2 defeat against FK Rostov in their previous tie at home. The visitors were far less clinical in the attacking third which consequently brought their two-game unbeaten run to a halt.
With FC Tambov showing signs of promise in their last clash here, a win for the visitors, who have just one win so far in their travels, is looking highly doubtful.

FC Tambov vs Arsenal Tula Prediction
The hosts secured their first three points of their campaign last week at this very same venue. The newbies lost just thrice on home soil last season and amassed a total of thirty-one goals to their name while conceding no more than seventeen.
Additionally, Arsenal Tula have never been able to take down FC Tambov here and were at the losing end of a 1-0 scoreline in each of their last two visits.
So the odds are certainly stacked up in favor of FC Tambov to edge it past the visitors when they lock horns on Sunday.
The away side have scored four goals in their trips on the road so far. So, although a win does not look certain for the guests, you can count on them to at least find the back of the net along with the hosts in this one.
