Our match prediction:
After impressing in the 2015/2016 Russian Premier League campaign, Rostov are now ready for the European challenges. The Selmashi have been producing fine displays in recent warm-up games and it has to be noted that they recorded a 2-0 win over Slovan Liberec in their last friendly match. However, Tuesday’s football match against Anderlecht will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts and they will have to be at the top of their game if they are to defeat the Belgian outfit. Anderlecht, on the other hand, recorded a 3-1 win over Heerenveen in their final warm-up game and they will be looking to build on the triumph when they take on Rostov on Tuesday night. Seeing that the first leg will be played in Rostov-na-Donu, we predict that the two teams will share the spoils this time out. It has to be noted that Rostov and Anderlecht meet for the first time ever in European competitions.
