Our prediction for this Russia Premier League match:
Fisht Olympic Stadium will host Tuesday’s football game between Sochi and Rubin Kazan. Sochi kicked off the season with back-to-back draws with Spartak Moscow and Khimki, with the team showing character in each of the first games of the new campaign. The Leopards came from behind to share the spoils with both Spartak Moscow and Sochi, and, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from the midweek clash. The likes of Pomerko and Vardyan are likely to miss the game with injury for the hosts. Speaking of Rubin Kazan, the visitors are eyeing their first win of the season.
The Tatars have been struggling in front of goal at the start of the season, meaning that a low-scoring affair is on the horizon. Mikhail Merkulov is sidelined through suspension for the hosts, but fellow defender Silvije Begic returns to contention after serving his ban in the 1-1 draw with Ural.
