Rubin Kazan

      Tip Reasoning

      On paper, Rubin Kazan lost to Sion FC 1-0 in their opening game, proving that they should not be a major threat in this game. However, this is a club with a decent squad and some decent players. As one interesting point of reference, they beat Lokomotiv Moscow 3-1 and then drew 0-0 with CSKA in September Russian Super League action.

      Kazan is one of the toughest places to travel to in the European football competitions and the strength of this team is in a gritty midfield that naturally seems to disrupt the flow of games. They’ve got goal-scoring potential though.

      Bordeaux are still trying to work out what sort of team they are in 2015-16. A 1-1 draw with Liverpool in the opening group game doesn’t look too bad overall. In their last two Ligue 1 games, they suffered a shocking 6-1 defeat to Nice and then beaten one of Ligue 1’s better sides in Lyon 3-1.

      The answer is that this is a young team with a slightly thin squad. Ups and downs, especially early on, are somewhat inevitable. We think their approach to this game is predictable though. They’re not going to expose them playing attacking football.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Home field advantage

      The trip is difficult, Bordeaux are a young football team and there’ll be distinct home field advantage for Rubin Kazan on Thursday night. We’re not convinced that the French side will handle it.

      2. Can Bordeaux break Rubin Kazan down?

      Their attacking output has been erratic and we’re not convinced that they will be able to Rubin Kazan down on Thursday, in fact it’ll probably be a frustrating night for them.

      3. Rubin Kazan are a good side

      They’re a good football team and their form book against the big teams from Moscow is pretty good evidence of their quality. Both of those clubs are pretty formidable opponents in European competition.
