This is a UEFA Europa League Group D match between Wigan Athletic and FK Rubin Kazan. Right now, Wigan sits in second place with four points. FK Rubin Kazan sits atop the table with six points and a staggering plus-seven goal differential.
This is the first time that these two clubs have met. Wigan Athletic has never faced a Russian team before. FK Rubin Kazan has played four games against English sides though. Against English teams, FK Rubin Kazan has played well, they’ve won twice and lost twice. Unfortunately, their two wins came at home and their two losses came in England. That doesn’t give you a lot of confidence they’ll get the job done in England against Wigan.
Last season, it was Chelsea that ended FK Rubin Kazan’s European season and dreams of winning the Europa League.
