Description: AT Vs UFA Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Arsenal Tula look to register their first win this season and get their campaign underway today.
Both these clubs sat adjacent to each other last season with the same number of points but the manner in which their campaigns unfolded was completely opposing to each other. Where Ufa relied on their defensive might to slug out results and scoot clear of the relegation brawl, Arsenal Tula thrusted all their attention towards attack as they tried to compensate for a leaky defence.
Their first encounters of the 2020-21 edition of the Russian Premier League were anything but though. Ufa’s conventionally revered defence, the second best in the league season was made a mockery of by Krasnodar with the club toyed around in what was a horrendous 3-0 defeat for them.
While the side will not be massively perturbed by that routing with Krasnodar one of the outright favourites for the precious trophy, the manner in which their backline collapsed is not something Ufa have been associated with. They’ll be looking to immediately turnaround that result and revert to usual manners when they go locking heads with Arsenal Tula today.
AT Vs UFA Dream11 Probable Winner
Drawing 0-0 with Akhmat Grozny the last time around, Arsenal Tula managed to begin their new sortie with the one point. Although it was far from an inspiring performance with the side languid in defence, they did manage to lay down the foundation for a relatively stronger season than last time.
Today’s outing will be a real skirmish, one where either defence takes centrestage. This will be a closely contested encounter, one where either attack gets no joy with the attacking names being asked to sweat it out on the day.
What will favour Arsenal Tula in this narrative is their more clinical attack, one which should see the side register a one goal win.

Dream 11 Picks
Arsenal Tula’s Egor Shamov will be embedded in our Dream 11 team as the goal-keeper for the upcoming affair. The shot stopper was at the forefront of transforming his side’s defence into such an unbreachable one last encounter with his worldclass brand of goal-keeping seeing him being held in high esteem.
The second best defence last season with a measly 22 goals allowed past them all season long, Ufa are capable of giving any time a hard time out on the pitch. This is a truly worldclass backline, one endowed with names who are ingrained with fight and character.
And with Arsenal Tula showing their attacking predicament after failing to score against Grozny the last time around, this could easily end up as a cleansheet for Ufa. We’ll be reposing faith with the club for this one to see us opt for the pick of the indomitable and diminutive Jemal Tabidze, Ionut Nedelcearu and Bojan Jokic from the side.
Elsewhere, Robert Bauer will be our pick from the home side with Ufa’s attack having registered a horrid 24 goals last term.
Kings Kangwa managed to register the three goals for Arsenal Tula the last season along with his occult attacking plays sent down his way to see him emerge as the complete package for the club. We have the electric partnership of Igor Gorbatenko and Danilil Khlusevich pair up with Kings, two names capable of going for the jugular and coming up with the pivotal goal in this one in between themselves.
Arsenal Tula’s leading scorer in the league last season with a staggering 15 goals, Evgeni Lutsenko was responsible for almost 50% of his side’s goals. The spearhead of their attack, the stoutheaded striker is an indispensable pick, someone we just can’t leave out of the outing.
He finds company in the fluent Danilil Lesovoy who had the three goals and four assists last term. Elsewhere, with three goals to his name for Ufa, Vyacheslav Krotov will be wrapping up our set of picks for the upcoming outing.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His side’s top scorer last edition, Evgeni will slot his way into our side as the captain while Bauer is the vice-captain.
