The Cosmos Arena in Samara, Russia will host FC Krylia Sovetov against the visiting Rubin Kazan in tomorrow's Russian Premier League 2019 fixture. Both the sides are placed in the middle of the table with just one point separating them heading into this match.
With 17 points coming off five wins in fourteen outings, Krylya Sovetov has grabbed the ninth spot in the ladder while Rubin Kazan is sitting at the tenth spot with 16 points coming off four wins. So, an exciting clash along with some shuffling in the points table is expected when these two sides square off tomorrow evening.
A low scoring match!
Since suffering a 5-0 humiliation at Zenit Saint-Petersburg in September, Kazan have kept three shut outs in the league and are unbeaten, though they won just once in that period.
There have been just 24 goals in 14 games in the league matches involving Kazan, with only 8 scored by Kazan. So there is certainly a lack of goal in the team, while Sovetov has 18 goals in 14 league games this season but only 8 have come in home games. Kazan will fancy their chances of keeping a clean sheet here.

Krylya Sovetov vs Rubin Kazan Team news:
Sovetov Team News:
The hosts will be without right-back Aleksandr Anyukov as he serves the last of his two-game suspension. The 37-year-old veteran was sent off in Sovetov's 0-1 win at Orenburg.
Srdjan Milailovic is also suspended for the home tilt against Rubian Kazan due to the accumulation of yellow cards. Meanwhile, Denis Yakuba remains a long-term absentee. The 23-year-old midfielder is yet to feature this season as he recovers from a knee injury.
Vladimir Poluyakhtov will continue to feature at right-back due to Anyukov ‘s suspension.
Aleksandr Sobolev has been scoring for fun of late and will lead the attack but Anton Terekhov may have to contend with a place on the bench once again.
Rubin Kazan Team News:
Kazan will miss left-back Konstantin Pliev through after the player picked up his fourth booking of the season while centre-back Vladimir Granat remains on the sideline.
Kazan will monitor Silvije Begic, Carl Starfelt and Oleg Danchenko ahead of the match.
Kazan are on a four-game unbeaten streak, their best run of the season. Head coach manager Eduardo Docampo will thus look to stick with the system that has brought the team success.
