Rubin v Spartak Moscow

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Spartak Moscow finished 12 points ahead of Rubin Kazan last season
Expert verdict
Rubin Kazan are a solid unit but have been weakened by the recent departures of Jose Salomon Rondon and Yann M’Vila and may struggle to get their campaign off to a winning start. Spartak Moscow have plenty of goals in their side with Yura Movsisyan and Jurado and can force a draw at the Kazan Arena.
