Our prediction for this Russia Premier League match:
Rubin Kazan take on Orenburg in the relegation six-pointer at Central Stadium. Rubin Kazan have been impressive at the back of late, with the team eyeing their third consecutive clean sheet, but the game against Orenburg will be anything but a walk in the park for them. Ukrainian defender Oleg Danchenko misses the game with injury.
Orenburg, on the other hand, were not in action in midweek as their game against Ural was postponed after 10 Orenburg players had been tested positive for the coronavirus. Seeing that several players will be quarantined against Rubin Kazan, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. In the first half of the season Orenburg defeated Rubin Kazan at Gazovik Stadium, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge. Rubin attacker Evgeni Markov, who has netted four goals so far this term, is pushing for a start.
