With a new manager (Andre Villas Boas), Zenit returned back to winning ways in their last two league matches. The performance was not spectacular but the impact of the new manager has been felt and the team will get better and better with each match as it's only a matter of time till they start winning in fashion. Zenit are in second place in the league and only one point below league leader Lokomotiv Moskva. As such, this match is very important to win. They have one of the best home record in Russia as they lost only once in 11 league home matches played with 3 draws and 7 wins. They possess the best attack in the league and they usually score goals at home. Midfielder Shatov (16/3) is injured.


Rubin Kazan are having a disappointing season and their form has been on a downward trend recently with 1 win, 2 draws and 2 defeats in their last 5 league matches. They have won only 2 away games this season in the league and the main problem is that they have scored only 6 goals in 12 away games played in the league this season. Besides, they have failed to score in 6 of their last 8 away matches in the league. However, they usually manage to avoid conceding goals as most of their away matches have ended in goalless draws. Defender Burlak (2/0) is injured, midfielder M'Vila (17/0) is doubtful while main goalkeeper Ryzhikov (23/0) is suspended.


With home advantage, Zenit will most probably get a win here as the squad of Rubin lacks quality and they have a poor away form. Besides, Rubin will be missing their main goalkeeper and the substitute goalkeepers have barely played a match. As such, it remains to be seen whether the second goalkeeper will be effective in protecting the nets. Zenit have many quality forwards in their team and I think they will come out victorious against a Rubin side out of form.
