Our prediction for this Russia Premier League match:
Rotor Volgograd will be looking to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Spartak Moscow when they take on Khimki on Matchday 6. Rotor do not seem to be competitive at this level, and, it is no wonder they are stuck at the bottom of the table ahead of the trip to the Moscow Oblast.
Khimki made a slow start to the season as well, with the team collecting only two points from possible 15. The hosts are eager to get back on course in the Russian Premier League, and they will not have a better chance than this to do so. Even though talented midfielder Danil Kazantsev misses the game through suspension, we are tempted to put our money on the home side as they did well to hold Arsenal Tula to a draw at Stadion Arsenal in midweek.
