FC Tambov vs FC Rostov
Russia – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 8 August 2020
Kick-off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Mordovia Arena (Saransk).
FC Tambov was in the 14th spot, while FC Rostov was at the fifth place in the league table last season.
Even though they had a big difference between each other, it was the Wolves that got the better of ‘Selmashi’ in both the fixtures last season in the campaign.
Tambov had three losses in their last five league clashes in the schedule. Their last match was on the road and they lost with a 2-0 scoreline against CSKA Moscow. Six of their nine overall wins came at home. So, the Wolves will be at their strongest suit for the match.
FC Rostov was struggling towards the end of the last season, and their six-game winless streak in the campaign shows that they experience trouble in the schedule. The visitor had only 4 wins from their 15 away fixtures last season and they will visit after a 1-2 loss at home against Zenit last month.
Tambov vs Rostov Head-to-head (h2h)
The teams have met only twice in recent times (2019). Tambov has won both the fixtures with the same 2-1 scoreline.
Tambov vs Rostov Prediction
Tambov didn’t make a tremendous impact on their arrival to the top tier last season. But they enjoy the ground advantage at home, which has been their strongest suit.
Besides, Rostov hasn’t been able to find the victory in both fixtures last season. So, they cannot complain about lacking any advantage in the clash.
With their overall form, the ‘Selmashi’ will win either half of the encounter. However, based on their h2h history, the Wolves snatch the lead in the second half regularly, and probably we can expect a similar result at Saransk.
To be safer, the double chance favoring Tambov will probably be the better option for the punters than going with a straight home win.
