Ufa vs Rubin Kazan
Russian Premier League
Date: Saturday, 20 October 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Stadion Neftyanik (Ufa).
Rubin Kazan were enjoying a fabulous form before the international break. They will travel to Stadion Neftyanik for Saturday’s clash with Ufa unbeaten in last eight matches in all competitions. Moving forward, Volzhane won four of last five, a thread which climbed them up to the fifth place in the Premier League standings.
Kurban Berdyev’s lads will have a nice chance to keep their stellar form going here given the opposition comes in the likes of Ufa who sit second from bottom after ten rounds of the competition. Gorozhane were one of the most pleasant surprises of the previous term of the Premier League when they secured a top-six finish, but they are not pulling up any trees without Sergei Semak on the bench in this term.
Ufa vs Rubin Kazan: Head-to-head
The draw was the most frequent of outcomes in the history of head to head matches between the two teams.
It happened on four occasions in eight games.
Rubin won three, while Ufa managed only a single victory in remaining four outings.
Both teams were on the scoresheet in seven of eight head to head matches.
Ufa vs Rubin Kazan: Prediction
Gorozhane took advantage of the easier schedule in last two rounds to pick up four points from fixtures with Yenisey (2-1 win) and Arsenal Tula (1-1 draw). They thus moved away from the rock bottom of the league standings, but still sit in the drop zone after a dreadful start to the season.
Rubin will be a tough nut to crack for them at this stage if we know the visitors won four and drew one of last five games across competitions. The value is thus huge with the away win set at the 2.45 odds, while punters who prefer safer options can back Volzhane not to lose at 1.35.
Another value-bet would be Rubin to keep a clean sheet at the odds of 2.37 since Ufa are generally struggling badly for goals this season.
