Our prediction for this Russia Premier League match:
Tuesday’s football match at Mordovia Arena pits together Tambov and Khimki, the two teams who are still eyeing their first win of the season. Tambov kicked off the new Russian Premier League campaign with back-to-back defeats to Rostov and CSKA Moscow, but they are surely capable of matching Khimki. Keep in mind that boss Sergei Pervushin has a full squad to choose from. The Krasno-chyornye, on the other hand, head into the midweek clash following a 1-1 draw with Sochi.
Khimki have been struggling in front of goal at the start of the season, and given the importance of the match for the home side, we are tempted to put our money on Sergei Pervushin’s troops. In their last meeting in the national championship Khimki crushed Tambov 7-0, meaning that the hosts must be hungry for revenge. Experienced defender Evgenij Gapon is sidelined with injury for the visiting team.
