Ural are hoping to win again following a 3-0 Premier League success versus Rubin Kazan.
In that match, Ural managed 70% possession and 14 shots on goal with 4 of them on target. For Ural, goals were scored by Eric Bicfalvi (23', 71') and Oleg Shatov (57'). Rubin Kazan got 11 shots on goal with 2 on target.
It’s been all too rare in recent games where Ural have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The reality is that Ural have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 clashes, letting in 12 goals on the way. Nevertheless, it remains to be seen if that pattern will persist in this next match.
Leading up to this clash, Ural:
- have not emerged victorious against Rubin Kazan when playing them at home in the previous 2 league games.
- have not registered a win against Rubin Kazan in their last 5 league games.
The stats don’t lie, and Rubin Kazan have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, conceding 12 goals in all. Defensively, Rubin Kazan can certainly do much better.

Team News: Ural
It’s a low absenteeism rate, with just the sole fitness concern for the Ural boss Igor Shalimov to be concerned about from a near full-strength group. Kirill Kolesnichenko (Unknown Injury) misses out.
Team News: Rubin Kazan
Rubin Kazan manager Leonid Slutskiy has some current player fitness concerns. Konstantin Nizhegorodov (Unknown Injury) and Mikhail Kostyukov (Fracture-dislocation of the ankle) are not ready for selection.
We’ve got the feeling that Rubin Kazan will do well to score goals against this Ural lineup who we think will be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a very even contest with a 1-0 winning margin for Ural when the referee blows for full-time.
Should be interesting.
