After raking up their elusive win in the 2020-21 edition of the Russian Premier League, things took no time in once again going on a downtick for Tambov. The club was quick to stay true to its nature and revert to losing ways in gameweek 4 after suffering a lacklustre 4-1 defeat to Zenit.
While no one had given the side a chance when they took on the current champions, the manner in which they were schooled was abject to say the least. There was a complete lack of fight and character from the side with the team falling flat on its face against a way superior opposition, a result which alluded the side’s horrendous setup.
Things are set to continue in the same manner for the 14th placed side when the team’s arduous set of encounters continuing today as well. Up against a rampant Sochi side, a team which is capable of going on a rampage, Tambov’s race looks set to have been run before they even take to the middle this Tuesday.

Dream 11 Picks
He’s part of a side that was hit for four by Zenit the last time around but that does nothing to refrain us from opting for Tambov’s Sergey Ryzhikov. The player was the only reason for the side’s only win till now with his incredible and resolute brand of goal-keeping helping his side to a cleansheet.
While Sochi haven’t covered themselves in glory defensively, they are the only side capable of pulling off a cleansheet today. Tambov have scored a meagre three goals in four encounters and with them set to see extremely little of the ball, Sochi can finally get their house in order when it comes to defence.
Adding to that discourse is the attacking impetuous Ivan Miladinovic and Miha Mevlja are capable of providing. Both scored in the side’s foregone encounter to make the duo a must have pick along with Elmir Nabiullin.
Oleksandr Kaplienko on the other hand will be representing our Dream 11 side from Tambov. He came up with an assist against Khimki, one which showed why the wingback is the only shining light of an otherwise howler of a defence.
Up against a side hit for seven in four matches, Christian Noboa is going to be eagerly anticipating the upcoming clash. Sochi’s top scorer with three goals, this can be a tie where he adds to that tally with his expertise set to leave Tambov in a quagmire.
Slotting in next to him will be Joaozinho. He’s been responsible for keeping the ball moving quickly for the side with his two assists being vindictive of his eye for pinch perfect layups.
With two goals, the calibre of Nikita Burmistrov will be wrapping up our triad of picks from the visiting team for the comping showdown. Tambov on the other hand see us repose faith in a duo, one which has waged a lone battle for the club in its attacking sorties.
Both Valeriu Ciuperca and Kirill Panchenko have strung together the two goals for the side in between with either player helping himself to the one.
Completing our Dream 11 side will be Aleksander Rudenko from Sochi. He’s scored on the one occasion, a goal showed how treacherous a name he is for opposing defenders.
Captain And Vice-Captain
With three goals and one assist, Noboa was the only choice as our captain while Nikita will be the vice-captain.
