CSK Vs RBK Dream11 Team Prediction : Both sides head out in pursuit of top 4 as they look to make it three successive wins.
Winning last week’s derby against Dynamo Moscow is set to have rejuvenated CSKA Moscow who were finding it tough to find their footing in the 2019-20 edition of RPL. The side ended up scoring the lone goal in that encounter, coming out a crucial 1-0 win which saw them make it two wins on the bounce after suffering a defeat in their league opener.
And taking on Rubin Kazan today, the aspirations for CSKA Moscow will be to continue making massive strides in the ranks as they look to stamp their credentials as firm favourites for the glistening trophy. The side are up against a team who are yet to be beaten in the league, sitting in fifth place with 7 points, one that includes two straight wins and a draw.
Having managed to have scored a goal in all three of their matches, what has served Rubin Kazak so well is the cleansheets they have managed to craft out. The backline has come across as any extremely disciplined and well drilled one, helping craft out a sublime and illustrious framework of success for the side who couldn’t have asked for a better start to life in the newest edition of the marquee league.
With both the sides having managed to score three goals in their opening three matches, what just about tilts this match in Rubin Kazan’s favour is just the one goal they have allowed their defence to concede. This is going to be a match where the chances to score should be few and the side which is able to shut out the opposition better and latch onto their chances will emerge as the winner.
Expect Rubin Kazan to win this by a one goal margin with even a draw today a likely result.

Dream 11 Picks
Although both the sides have been relatively astute in defence, we do see both the sides conceding in this one given the stature of the two outfits. These are teams who know what it takes to succeed in a match of such fine margins and they should be able to create openings which help to scrimmage their way to a goal atleast.
And this sees us opt for Rubin Kazan’s Yuri Dupin with the shot stopper having come in with some incredible saves in the three matches for his side. He’s been one of the best goal-keeper till now and we see him putting in another strong display today as well.
With this being an encounter where the defences will prevail above every other department, we have opted for some stalwarts here, names who have helped imbed a culture of excellence for their side. And when you have registered two cleansheets in three matches, it was only fair for us to include Rubin Kazan’s rightback, someone who has helped his side learn from the vast tutelage he brings forward. Yegor Sorokin is picked up as well by us.
From CSKA Moscow we are opting for a duo with right wingback Mario Fernandes and centreback Igor Diveev our pick for this one. The three man centrebacks which the side deploy see Diveev emerge as the side’s main player in the backline, someone asked to take control of his side’s defensive success and he’s more than justified the role accorded to him.
Providing the perfect service to his striker along with being a quissential player for the side up the pitch, CSK Moscow’s Nikola Vlasic is our first pick from the side here. We are getting his partner on the right in his side’s 3-4-2-1 formation, Arnor Siggurdson as well with CDM Ilzat Akhmetov coming is as well from the side.
Ilzat is someone who we especially have big expectations from with the CDM reverberating his role as not only an enforcer but a ball carrier as well to perfection. Elsewhere from Rubin Kazan we have chosen leftwinger Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and Pavel Mogilevets with the duo bound to intertwine their penchant to score in this one successfully.
Scoring the only goal of the derby the last time around as he went onto convert his penalty, CSK Moscow will be represented by Fedor Chalov for us. He’s perfectly created a link between himself and the wide players with the trio putting in rousing performances to make things jittery for the opposition’s defence.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We have decided to make Mogilevets our captain for this match while Chalov is the vice-captain.
