Our prediction for this Russia Premier League match:
Sochi desperately needed a win against Rubin Kazan, and thanks to Ivan Miladinovic’s late goal they managed to get one. The Leopards recorded their first win of the season in midweek, with the team regaining a much-needed confidence. Even though important attacker Dmitri Poloz misses the Rotor game through injury, the visitors must be high on spirits ahead of Saturday’s clash.
Rotor Volgograd, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 3-1 loss to Akhmat Grozny. The hosts are eager to get back on course in the Russian Premier League, but beating Sochi is easier said than done. Considering that the visitors will be without Dmitri Poloz in the Volgograd Arena showdown, we are tempted to put our money on draw. Ivory Coast international Aboussy Gogoua is banned for the hosts.
