Rubin Kazan v Spartak Moscow
Rubin Kazan will not be looking back on last season for any inspiration moving forward. With several new signings, none of ground-breaking talents however, the team will be aiming for a European finish this time round. Spartak have had a change of manager over the summer and such has been the uncertainty at the helm that few transfers have been confirmed, so the new Coach, Murat Yakin will be looking to try and get the best out of the previous group. Kazan have made attacking purchases this Summer, so look to an attacking set-up from them from the off.
