📋 Team News: FC Rostov
FC Rostov manager Valery Karpin will be grateful to have no fitness worries whatsoever before this game with a fully injury-free group available to choose from.
It’s our opinion that Rostov will possibly make use of the 4-1-4-1 system this time and select Sergey Pesyakov, Evgeny Chernov, Dmitri Chistyakov, Maksim Osipenko, Alexey Kozlov, Danil Glebov, Aleksandr Saplinov, Baktiyor Zaynutdinov, Roman Eremenko, Aleksey Ionov and Eldor Shomurodov.
ℹ️ Team News: Arsenal Tula
Thanks to a completely healthy squad available to choose from, Arsenal Tula manager Igor Cherevchenko does not have any fitness concerns at all ahead of this game. Sergey Tkachev will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
From our viewpoint, Pryaniki might begin the game with a 4-2-3-1 formation with a starting lineup of Egor Shamov, Kirill Kombarov, Maxim Belyaev, Giya Grigalava, Victor Alvarez, Georgi Kostadinov, Goran Causic, Daniil Lesovoy, Igor Gorbatenko, Aleksandr Lomovickiy and Evgeni Lutsenko.
We believe that FC Rostov have it within them to stay in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of the chances that they create. However, Arsenal Tula may well find it hard to find the back of the net although we do reckon that they could well end up hitting back at some stage. Our tip is for a decent 3-1 winning score for FC Rostov at full-time.
