Rubin did not play the first round of the championship in the best way and only thanks to two victories in the last three matches was able to take a relatively worthy 8th place. The Kazan team will open the second round with a tough home match with Dynamo Moscow, which is in the Champions League zone and is the main rival of Zenit in the fight for the championship.
The match of the 16th round of the RPL Rubin – Dynamo Moscow will take place on November 28 in Kazan. The beginning is at 16:30 Moscow time.
Kazan started off powerfully this season with 3 victories in a row. However, it was not possible to build on the success, and in the next 12 rounds Rubin also won only 3 victories. As a result, after the first round, Leonid Slutsky’s wards occupy 8th place with 22 points in the asset. Lagging behind Lokomotiv, which is going in the zone of European cups, is 5 points.
In September-October, Rubin had an unsuccessful streak of 5 matches, in which they scored only 2 points. However, the ending of the first round was more successful. If it were not for the devastating fiasco from Rostov (1: 5), then for this segment the Kazan team could have given a “5 with a plus”. But even without that, victories over CSKA (1: 0 at home) and Sochi (2: 1 away) are worth a lot.
True, in the game against Sochi we can talk about Rubin’s luck, because the final ratio of shots on goal is 31: 6 in favor of the southerners. However, Slutsky did not agree with this.
“It seems to me that such a large number of strikes were either after the standards in wrestling, or from long distances. Because I cannot say that Sochi had a large number of chances to score. ”

If Dynamo did not lose points in optional situations, then now they could well lead the RPL. However, home defeats from Nizhniy Novgorod (1: 2) and Krylia Sovetov (0: 1) did their job – after 15 rounds, the blue-white with 29 points took 2nd place in the RPL, 4 points behind the leading Zenit.
By the way, Dynamo lost a face-to-face duel with the leader devastatingly. The match of the 13th round in St. Petersburg ended with a score of 4: 1 in favor of the hosts, although a draw remained until the 66th minute. However, the failed ending did not allow them to take at least a point.
But in the last round with the Tula Arsenal, Sandro Schwartz’s charges did a great job. A crushing victory with a score of 5: 1, a brace by Vyacheslav Grulev, the first goal for the club of Paraguayan Fabian Balbuena and 3 Dynamo at once – in the national team of the round.
