Rotor's opponent in the upcoming match will be one of the main outsiders of the season, Kuban. The team from Krasnodar takes the last 20th place with only eight points scored. The Veggies are in the relegation zone and lag ten points behind the nearest competitor from the safe zone, Yenisey. In the current championship, Kuban scored 10 goals and conceded 24 times. The last ten matches of the team ended in eight defeats, one draw, and one victory. In recent rounds, Kuban lost to Neftekhimik (0-2), Akron Togliatti (1-0), Orenburg (0-1), Tom Tomsk (2-1), and Fakel Voronezh (0-4). The Veggies beat only Volgar-Astrakhan (0-2) and shared points with Baltika (0-0). In the last five away matches, Kuban chalked up one victory, one draw, and three defeats.
Rotor Volgograd and Kuban have crossed paths in head-to-head matches, but this does not make this prediction more difficult. The hosts cannot boast of very high results, but they are tough middle peasants. Kuban is a clear outsider and is unlikely to do something against Rotor. I think that the upcoming match will be a great chance for the hosts to earn additional three points, which the team has not seen for three rounds in a row. Let's place a bet on the victory of Rotor Volgograd.
