Rubin Kazan in the first leg was won 2-0 without too many emotions. Rondon has scored one goal in each half, the last being scored in overtime game.
Rubin Kazan has yet to be beaten this summer, managed to record 11 matches in all competitions without failure. In last weekend Rubin Kazan drew 1-1 at home to Samara and is currently in ninth in the Premier League. Russian team drew four times in the last matches played in the championship. In the Europa League, Rubin went Jagodina and the Rangers managed to win all matches. Interestingly, “kazacii” draws alternated victories in the last six matches in all competitions. In four of the last five games have not scored upon.
Molde is in a very difficult situation in the championship, where only occupy tenth place, six points away from the relegation zone. Molde is likely small enough to get through in the Europa League after defeat in Norway. This weekend, Molde lost by a score of 2: 5 matches played away at Stromsgodset. Visitors from this confrontation was eliminated from the Champions League Legia Warsaw and is about to leave and competition. Molde managed to score twice in the last two trips, but got six goals in total.
Rubin Kazan is almost qualified in Europa League and some players will likely be spared for the next stage of the Premier League. Molde has nothing to lose after the failure of the tour. Under these conditions we do not believe that the Russians will force too much in attack. If you play below recommended predict where Rubin Kazan win in exactly two goals difference, half the stake will be lost and the other half will be refunded.
