Team News: Rubin Kazan
Filip Uremovic (Muscle Injury) and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia (Concussion) aren’t available for Rubin Kazan gaffer Leonid Slutskiy. In-beom Hwang cannot play in this game through suspension.
In our view, Tatáry will probably use a 4-2-3-1 system for this game featuring Nikita Medvedev, Mikhail Merkulov, Silvije Begic, Carl Starfelt, Aleksandr Zuev, Darko Jevtic, Oliver Abildgaard Nielsen, Soltmurad Bakaev, Oleg Shatov, Denis Makarov and Djordje Despotović.
Team News: Spartak Moscow
Spartak manager Domenico Tedesco has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Samuel Gigot (Muscle Injury) and Maksim Glushenkov (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will not be playing here.
We’re of the thinking that Narodnaya komanda might play in a 3-4-2-1 lineup by sending out Aleksandr Maksimenko, Pavel Maslov, Samuel Gigot, Georgiy Dzhikiya, Roman Zobnin, Nail Umyarov, Alex Kral, Ayrton, Ezequiel Ponce, Zelimkhan Bakaev and Jordan Larsson.
In our view, Rubin Kazan might need a bit of good fortune to be putting a goal past this Spartak Moscow side who we reckon will manage to score & go ahead.
We’re therefore expecting a very competitive encounter with a 0-1 win for Spartak Moscow at the conclusion of the game.
