Our prediction for this Russia Premier League match:
Rubin Kazan and Lokomotiv Moscow go head to head in the opening match of the season. Rubin Kazan are on a quest to bring glory days back to Ak Bars Arena, and it has to be noted that the club chiefs added the likes of Oliver Abildgaard, Mikhail Merkulov, Djordje Despotovic, Kirill Kosarev, and Oleg Shatov to the squad in the summer transfer window.
The capital club, on the other hand, face a tough fixture list in the 2020/21 season as they will represent Russia in the Champions League group stages. Lokomotiv Moscow are eager to put an end to Zenit’s dominance in the Russian top flight, but we do not believe that they are capable of beating Rubin Kazan, who are a real force to be reckoned with at home. A close encounter is on the cards, and we are tempted to put our money on draw.
