Based on the way Rubin Kazan have played in the early going against Olympique Lyonnais, it appears that they don't have the slightest clue that they're trailing 3-1 in the series. That's not to say that Rubin have been bad; they're doing a decent job of defending and of passing the ball. However, their style of play has been a tad bit negative for anyone and extremely negative for a team that need two goals. At halftime, the score is tied at 0-0, leaving Rubin trailing on aggregate by two goals.
Rubin's variation on 3-6-1 has left Vladimir Dyadyun isolated up top as they have packed the midfield and struggled to get men forward. Igor Lebedenko should be supporting him, in theory, but has played very deep for a team who - and this bears repeating - needs to score two goals.
Lyon have not sat on their lead and have been the much more ambitious of the two teams. Rubin have not done much to create any clear cut chances, and their manager Remi Garde will be confident going into the second half.
