AKM vs RBK Dream11 and Probable Playing 11: Rubin Kazan look to continue their unbeaten spree when they face off against Akhmat Grozny today
They began Russian Premier League 2019-20 with a win to their name but went onto subsequently squander a place in the top 10 of the league standings with a big defeat. Losing 3-0 to Ural, for Akhmat Grozny, the defeat was a massive setback, seeing them going a downward spiral as they slump straight down to 14th position in the league.
And it’s that standing which the side will be looking to improve on when they face off against Rubin Kazan who followed a 1-1 draw with Lokomotiv Moscow with a 1-0 win against Dynamo Moscow. Undefeated after their opening two matches, the four points acclimated by the club place them in 7th place as they look to improve on an underachieving previous season in the marquee league.
What the two teams have taught us after their first two encounters in RPL 2019-20 is that as of now, the two have struggled to come up with the goals. With a total of three goals scored in between them in four matches, today’s match should be a tightly contested and feisty one, a match where both the backlines were come to the fore and try to win the match for their side.
Although Rubin Kazan look the likelier side to win this fixture, the way results have shaped up in the dramatic land of RPL. We have had some stunning results being dished our way, seeing the league table take shape in a completely unexpected fashion.
Expect today’s match to be decided by fine margins with the final result coming down to which side is able to better pounce of the few chances which fall their way. We are going to stick with Rubin Kazan to come out of this one as the winners.
