Despite the poor performance on the road, they have conceded more than one goal as a visiting team on only one occasion in last 8 months.
Conclusion: This match will be held in Saransk and not in Saint Petersburg, due to abnormally low temperatures. There have been 2 or fewer goals scored in 12 of Rubin Kazan’s last 14 games in Premier League. Also, Rubin Kazan won (1-0) the only previous encounter earlier this season. Although the away team is a slight favourite we predict a low-scoring match as a more likely scenario.
