Team News: Ufa
Dmitri Sysuev (Unknown Injury), Olivier Thill (Muscle Injury) and Andrés Vombergar (Corona virus) won’t be able to feature for Ufa boss Vadim Evseev. Catalin Carp is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
In our view, Gorozhane look set to kick off with a 3-5-1-1 formation and select Aleksandr Belenov, Aleksandr Putsko, Ionut Nedelcearu, Jemal Tabidze, Bojan Jokic, Oston Urunov, Daniil Fomin, Artem Golubev, Aleksandr Sukhov, Nikolay Giorgobiani and Vyacheslav Krotov.
Team News: Ural
Due to a fully healthy squad ready to go, Ural manager Dmytro Parfenov doesn’t have any fitness concerns to report coming into this match.
From our viewpoint, Bumblebees could decide to begin the game with a 4-4-1-1 system, settling for Jaroslav Hodzjur, Denys Kulakov, Maciej Wilusz, Alexey Gerasimov, Nikolai Zolotov, Michal Kucharczyk, Andrey Egorychev, Yuri Bavin, Othman El Kabir, Eric Cosmin Bicfalvi and Andrey Panyukov.
We’re thinking that Ural and Ufa may well end up cancelling each other out here.
Shouldn’t be much in it, and a draw looks quite a realistic result. We’re therefore anticipating a tight encounter with a 1-1 scoreline when all is said and done.
