Our prediction for this Russia Premier League match:
Sochi will be aiming to build on back-to-back wins over Rubin Kazan and Rotor Volgograd when they take on Tambov at Mordovia Arena on Tuesday. The Leopards have been producing fine displays at the start of the season, and they should take advantage of the fact that the game will be played on neutral location. A man to watch in the away team will be Nikita Burmistrov, who scored a brace in the 2-1 win over Rotor.
Tambov, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-1 loss at Zenit. The Wolves are eager to get back on course as soon as possible, and the good news for boss Sergey Pervushin is that defender Aleksey Gritsaenko returns from suspension. Anyhow, a close encounter is on the cards at Mordovia Arena, and we are tempted to put our money on draw.
