Ural will be the visitors at Ak Bars Arena on Monday for the Premier League fixture with home side Rubin Kazan.
All of our predictions, stats and the user poll for Rubin Kazan v Ural are shown below - plus the latest betting odds.
Rubin Kazan will be hoping for a better result following the 2-0 Premier League loss in their previous game against FC Krasnodar.
In that game, Rubin Kazan managed 37% possession and 15 shots on goal with 7 on target. FC Krasnodar got 13 shots at goal with 7 on target. Aleksei Ionov (12') and Jhon Córdoba (35') scored for FC Krasnodar.
Rubin Kazan have really struggled up front of late. Their ‘goals for’ figure equals just 4 against opposing sides over their previous six fixtures. In those meetings, Rubin Kazan have also seen the number of goals against them come to 6. That pattern isn’t assured to be sustained here, though.
In their previous fixture, Ural drew 1-1 in the Premier League tie with FC Rostov.
In that match, Ural had 48% possession and 4 shots at goal with 1 on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Ural was Artyom Maksimenko (81'). FC Rostov had 14 shots on goal with 7 on target. Dmitriy Poloz (76') scored for FC Rostov.
It is worth noting that Ural have suffered from a shortage of goals over their previous six games, recording the unsatisfactory return of just 2. In those matches, Bumblebees have also seen the overall goal aggregate against them equal 9.
A look at their previous results shows us that Ural:
- have left without a victory over Rubin Kazan in away games against them for the last 3 league games.
- are undefeated by Rubin Kazan when they have played them away from home in the previous 2 league games.
- are without a win away from home in their last 11 matches in the league. Who knows how long it might last, too.
