Our prediction for this Russia Premier League match:
Buoyed by back-to-back wins over CSKA Moscow and Ufa, Rubin Kazan will be aiming to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Tambov on Matchday 6. The Tatars have been showing signs of improvement of late, but they surely want to move a little closer to the Europa League berth. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be talented midfielder Denis Makarov, who scored a brace in the 3-0 win over Ufa.
Tambov, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team losing to both Zenit and Sochi in the previous two league fixtures. Rubin Kazan midfielder Soltmurad Bakaev is likely to drop to the bench after failing to impress in the 3-0 win over Ufa. In their last meeting at Central Stadium Rubin Kazan recorded a 2-1 win over Tambov.
