THE PREDICTION

Despite losing their last two games, Ural are mathematically safe from relegation in the Russian Premier League so they can afford to put their full attention on this cup semi-final with Khimki. Their second-tier opponents have not played any competitive football since March although they have played a host of friendlies in recent weeks to prepare for this match and they have looked in good shape in those. They will play in the top division next season and they have already claimed the scalp of two Russian Premier League sides in their run to the semi-finals here. Ural have looked leggy in recent matches with the hectic schedule seemingly catching up with them so we’re tipping the fresher Khimki to continue their fairytale cup heroics and reach the final.
