View all Tambov v Ufa tips, stats and our pre-match poll below - along with the latest match odds.
Tambov go into this game after a 2-2 Premier League drawn result vs Rubin Kazan.
For Tambov, the goals were scored by Aleksandre Karapetian (15') and Pavel Karasyov (84'). Đorđe Despotović (45', 90') was the scorer for Rubin Kazan.
It’s not been often in recent times where Tambov haven’t conceded. It will be a concern for them that The Wolves have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, shipping 10 goals along the way.
In their last game, Ufa drew 1-1 in the Premier League match with Dynamo Moscow.
The only player to score from Ufa was Timur Zhamaletdinov (59'). Clinton N'Jie (43') scored for Dynamo Moscow.
The numbers tell their own story, and Ufa have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, letting opponents get 11 goals overall. In defence, Gorozhane seem to have a bit of a soft underbelly. Having said that, it remains to be seen whether that pattern will persist in this game.
Head to head
The previous league contest featuring these sides was Premier League match day 23 on 21/06/2020 which finished with the scoreline of Ufa 2-1 Tambov.
The referee was Vitaly Meshkov.
Team News: Tambov
Tambov manager Sergei Pervushin has zero fitness worries whatsoever coming into this clash owing to a fully injury-free group ready to go.
We are thinking that The Wolves may well go for a 3-4-2-1 formation for this game, handing starts to Sergey Ryzhikov, Aleksey Gritsaenko, Adessoye Oyewole, Nikita Chicherin, Evgeni Shlyakov, Guram Tetrashvili, Valeriu Ciuperca, Aleksei Rybin, Kirill Panchenko, Pavel Karasev and Alexander Karapetian.
Team News: Ufa
In an otherwise healthy squad, there is just a single fitness issue for the Ufa gaffer Vadim Evseev to be concerned with. Dmitri Sysuev (Fitness) won’t be playing here.
We are inclined to think that Gorozhane appear most likely to elect for a 3-5-2 formation, giving starts to Aleksandr Belenov, Pavel Alikin, Aleksey Nikitin, Ionut Nedelcearu, Oleg Danchenko, Igor Bezdenezhnykh, Artem Golubev, Cătălin Carp, Azer Aliev, Andrés Vombergar and Timur Zhamaletdinov.
We’re thinking that Tambov will have to work hard as a team to find the net against this Ufa outfit who we think will score at least once to gain the upper hand.
We therefore fancy a very even match with a 0-1 victory for Ufa at the end of the 90.
We’re expecting it to be that close.
