The final match of this opening weekend’s action in the Russian top flight is scheduled on Monday night with Lokomotiv Moscow taking on Rubin Kazan as the betting tips continue at the RZD Arena.

Lokomotiv Moscow Prediction – Can Lokomotiv Moscow continue good run?

Monday night’s hosts, Lokomotiv Moscow, will be looking to continue their impressive progress when they entertain Rubin Kazan.

The hosts finished last season as runners-up to Premier League title winners, Zenit, in what was a successful campaign for the Moscow outfit.

Their 2nd place finish at the end of last season secured a spot in this season’s Champions League group stages, and they’ll be keen for more of the same this time around too.

A strong finish to last season saw Lokomotiv Moscow suffer just 1 defeat out of their last 14 matches of the season, which was away at Arsenal Tula.

Lokomotiv Moscow have continued last season’s momentum into this season too as they registered a 3-2 win over Zenit in the Russian Super Cup.

This recent cup victory over last season’s domestic league title winners will certainly give the hosts belief that they can challenge Zenit again this term.

The home side have won their last 3 matches on the trot on home turf at their RZD Arena.

Rubin Kazan Prediction – Can Rubin Kazan improve this term?

The visitors ended last season in disappointing fashion as Rubin Kazan finished in 11th place on the Russian Premier League ladder.

Overall results have seen an alarming slump in form for Rubin Kazan who have captured just 2 wins out of their last 18 matches in all competitions.

Last season’s Premier League campaign fizzled out with the visitors winning just 1 of their last 12 matches overall, which was a 2-0 home win against Orenburg.

Not that results have improved in Rubin Kazan’s pre-season either though – the visitors have won just 1 of their 5 warm-up matches leading into this clash.

Results away from home have been even worse for Rubin Kazan for some time as they recorded just 1 away win throughout the whole of last season’s Premier League.

An away record of 1-8-6 11/21 was a poor return indeed for the visitors, and the bigger picture shows just 1 win out of their last 17 away from home.


Key-Facts – Lokomotiv Moscow v Rubin Kazan

  • Lokomotiv Moscow lost just 1 of their last 12 matches last season
  • Lokomotiv Moscow have won their last 3 matches at home on the trot
  • Rubin Kazan have won just 1 of their last 17 away matches in the Premier League


Betting Tips Verdict

Lokomotiv Moscow made a great start to the new campaign with the win over Zenit and should easily account for Rubin Kazan on Monday night.
