Premier League: Tipsway are previewing an interesting and very important duel between Ural and Rubin Kazan' at Ekaterinburg Arena. Both need the points!

Insights:
  • Ural have the fewest scored goals (22) in Premier League
  • Rubin Kazan' haven’t played a single 0-0 game.

Relegation threatens Ural who should definitely be looking for some points here. Kazan' are struggling to avoid relegation.

These teams have little in common geographically as Rubin Kazan' have to travel 900 kilometers to reach their opponents. The trip home will be especially long if the match ends in defeat.

Both squads have had adequate rest since their last competitive action. Let's have faith in that this will be an animated fixture!

The Ural crowd went home unhappy last time out, seeing their beloved players lose 1-3 to Spartak Moskva here at Ekaterinburg Arena.

Rubin Kazan' have only collected 12 points from their away games in the Premier League, after 3-3-8 (14 played).

Kazan' are looking to quickly end their 248 minutes long goal drought in the Premier League.

Preceding that, the 0-6 home loss versus Sochi.
