Likely to score:
Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:
Roman Eremenko: As much as the age can have a negative impact on the pace, the class, and the talent, remains untouchable. And no player in FC Rostov's team is as a naturally gifted player as is Roman Eremenko. The 32-year-old is a joy to watch week in and week out.
Eldor Shomurodov: Rostov's hitman is up and running for the season with a bang. If he continues to play as he has been so far this season, it won't be late when a big club comes knocking on Rostiov's door asking for Shomurodov's signature.
Aleksey Ionov: Another gem of a player on Rostov's roster is Aleksey Ionov. The 30-year-old is very much the team player, often looking to pass the ball to the player in the final 3rd. He has had a good start to the season and looks a very good bet to have an impact in this game.
Krylya Sovetov's Srdjan Miljailovic:
No doubt, the visitors have very slim chances of getting anything out of this game. But if they do, chances are that midfielder Srdjan Miljailovic will have a good game.
ROS vs KSS Dream11 potential winner:
FC Rostov's unbeaten start to the season, coupled with visitors' immense struggles, mean the hosts are a good choice for a winner in this match.
