FC Rostov haven’t been able to stop scoring goals, netting in one hundred percent of their last 6 matches.
They’ve claimed a sum of 15 during that period while seeing the number of goals scored against them stand at 8. We will see whether or not that trend can be continued on here.

In that game, Ufa managed 36% possession and 8 shots at goal with 2 of them on target. On the other side, Arsenal Tula had 9 attempts at goal with 3 on target.

- have not won away from home in their last 4 league games.

Team News: FC Rostov
The FC Rostov boss Vitaly Kafanov will be grateful not to have any fitness worries to speak of ahead of this match with a fully healthy squad ready to go.
Team News: Ufa
Due to a fully injury-free group to choose from, the Ufa boss Aleksei Stukalov has no fitness worries whatsoever ahead of this clash.
In our view, FC Rostov can fashion enough chances to find the net more than once while possibly not conceding when they come up against Ufa, who might well find it a difficult task scoring a goal of their own.
We reckon that it will be a controlled 2-0 margin for FC Rostov at the end of this one.
